Seeking a Social Media Marketing Volunteer

This is a great opportunity for those of you who are social media experts looking to add to your social media campaign portfolio. If you have the following skills, you can help create and grow a campaign to change and greatly improve the lives of the approximately 3,500 old-law prisoners in Ohio:

  • Well-organized. Take notes on everything you do so you can share these notes with Jason and the other volunteers involved.
  • Social Media Saavy. The ideal volunteer is familiar with all kinds of social media, both computer and mobile-based, and has participated in an organized social media campaign for a nonprofit group or a social justice issue.
  • Security and Privacy-Minded. Even though the information in this particular campaign will be public, the ideal volunteer will be currently implementing, or at least aware of secure password and Internet practices.
  • Willing to Volunteer Regularly and Consistently. This type of volunteer position will require regular updates to the website and social media sites. Expect about 1-2 hours per week.
  • Strong Communication Skills. We need someone who can respond to emails and letters from Jason promptly. It’s also important to be a solid writer and to have a solid grasp of the English language. We’re also open to volunteers who are able to translate Jason’s writings and social media content into other languages.
  • Experience with Web Technologies. We’re looking for someone who knows HTML, CSS, WordPress, and embedding widgets and other code. Basically, anyone who’s comfortable creating content on the web will fit in nicely.

This position is volunteer-only. We have no funds available to pay any type of salary or other compensation for the work completed. This is an excellent opportunity for one to gain references to use towards future work and build a campaign to include in one’s portfolio.

Background
Jason Goudlock is a 40-year-old African-American who has been imprisoned in the state of Ohio, as a first-time offender, for over 21 consecutive years. He’s serving an indefinite term of six to 25 years for aggravated robbery and felonious assault, including nine mandatory years for firearm specification sentencing enhancements. Since 2013, through FreeJasonGoudlock.org, he has been calling attention to a long existing sentencing disparity that adversely affects approximately 3,500 Ohio prisoners who were, like him, sentenced before July 1, 1996, under guidelines commonly referred to as “old-law.”

FreeJasonGoudlock.org has, so far, been unable to raise public awareness of Ohio’s unjust “old-law” sentencing disparity. Jason attributes this underachievement to not having someone who can help construct and carry out an aggressive and professional social media campaign to promote the website on social media sites including, but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Reddit.

If you are interested in the above possibility, please contact the website manager of FreeJasonGoudlock.org at info@freejasongoudlock.org.

You can contact Jason directly via snail mail or via email through JPay.com.
