As well as maintaining a digital platform to promote a just and equitable Arizona, we also work with groups in LD1 who organize voter registration drives and canvassing for Democrat candidates. During the COVID-19 period, which we expect to go on for many months action groups across the district are in dire need of people willing to phone, text or write post cards from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Can I work as your web developer?

During this difficult time when many of us will be reliant on the web for information and to build and maintain relationships the importance of projects like Black Mountain News has increased in importance. If you have experience in web development whether professionally or as a hobby or want to use your time while not in school to build a portfolio, please reach out to us to discuss opportunities

Can I organize a meet-up?

In adherence with strict social distancing guidelines set out by the World Health Organization and infectious disease control experts, we have temporarily paused all in person meet-ups.
