Communications and Outreach Associate – Our Streets MPLS
Position Type & Concern Area(s)
Organization Description
Our Streets MPLS (formerly Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition) began because there was no place to advocate for safe bike infrastructure in Minneapolis. We began as a grassroots volunteer advocacy group, and as our organization grew, we added staff while remaining volunteer driven and member supported. Our goal is to make Minneapolis a better place for bicycling in all corners of the city, for everyone. We have a track record of success that has helped lead to new bike lanes, new bike parking, the hiring of the first-ever Minneapolis bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, and the hosting of Open Streets Minneapolis events, which are neighborhood events which allow people to experience major thoroughfares as places for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy.
Position Description

The Our Streets MPLS (formerly Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition) Communication and Outreach Associate will assist staff with efforts to improve walking and biking safety, access, and equity in Minneapolis.

The Communication and Outreach Associate will assist the Community Organizer to create new outreach opportunities, do outreach at events, and come up with fun and exciting ways to communicate about Our Streets priority walking and biking projects to our network and the public. Some responsibilities include blogging, sharing information through social media, recruiting and working with outreach volunteers, coordinating events, tabling at events, and supporting volunteer leaders.

There are six full-time and three part-time staff on the team. The office is small, but we have a wide and diverse base of volunteers we work with to make impact in Minneapolis walking and biking.
