The Mime Troupe needs YOU to bring our community together

We were on the barricades in the 1960s, part of a coalition of regular folks who came together to oppose racism, sexism, war, and corporate greed. Today we are witnessing the erosion of many of the victories won by that movement but the never-silent San Francisco Mime Troupe has always believed in the power of the people united. As we enter a critical election year, we must do our part to foster a movement of working people of all genders, races, incomes, and sexual orientations. And so we are opening our doors and inviting our community in to help us best utilize art's power to envision and demand a better future.

We'll need some help to accomplish this goal and so we are looking to create a long term relationship with someone who has experience in community organizing and who would like to help us create opportunities for more community dialogue.

This would be a volunteer position and our ideal candidate is someone who is familiar with the Mime Troupe and who is connected to the local activist community. A self-starter with great people skills who can help us with:
We are looking for someone who can start this fall and assist us through next summer. If interested please send an email to We look forward to connecting with you.
