Kelvin - Getting hired as a CFR with the NRA-ILA, is so much more than general campaign work. I’m sure you all heard it from other organizations, all they want you to do is knock on doors! Well, that’s in your job description, but so much more comes with the CFR position. Honor, strength, mission focus are some of the words that can be used to describe the CFR program. I worked in Indianapolis in 2018. The grassroots skills I received during this time, I would have not gotten as quickly anywhere else. As a CFR, you are a public speaker, event organizer, and a grassroots professional. Most importantly, you are one of the few working with the NRA-ILA defending your 2nd Amendment rights as a team-member for the oldest civil rights organization in the United States of America.
Hannah - Being a CFR during a Presidential election year was such an exciting experience. Although COVID threw a wrench in many events we had planned in 2020, I was able to become deeply involved in the community and connect with many Second Amendment supporters. One of the highlights of the 2020 cycle was organizing and attending a members meeting with candidates running for state and local positions. I also had the opportunity to get to know the folks at the local gun shop in my area. I had the privilege of advocating for candidates that are staunch Second Amendment protectors and I’m glad I was able to participate and make a difference in the 2020 election as a Campaign Field Representative in North Carolina.
