Administrative – Paid – Filled


Fian with David

Fian with David Oaks. Welcome, Fian, hired September 2018, new administrative assistant.

In September, 2018 we hired a new administrative assistant, Fian. Thanks Phoenix for your service!

Our great Communications Access Coordinator, Phoenix Chambers, has helped so much this whole year of 2018. But Phoenix is leaving for Portland. We need immediate applicants. Please email your interest to

Here is basic information about this part-time job:

Part time assist me, longtime activist and quadriplegic, in my power chair in our home office with various fascinating professional and personal administrative tasks. My wonderful admin instead needs to be a volunteer intern.

I have a web steward to work on the technical aspects of my blog, so you do not have to be a computer expert.

Each admin shift is only for about three to four hours, once or twice per week. Some of the shifts can be done from your home. I have started a consulting business, Aciu Institute, LLC. So as well as working with me on activist projects, you will be helping to launch this new, disability consulting service.

Involves helping me access the computer (I have disabled hands), writing, editing, e-mail, scheduling, phone calls, research, organization, etc. Our home is in an interesting quarter acre eco-garden in southwest Eugene. You must support deep social and environmental justice and change. Experience as an activist is preferred, but not necessary.

Needed: Good typing and listening skills (I have a disabled voice and so the admin needs to be able to have good hearing.) Good writing abilities. Great sense of humor, social justice and reliability. Experience using computers. About $14.00 – $15.00 / hour depending on experience. Of course, since you are helping me here, you need to live in Eugene and you need to be able to commute here.

Your next step, if interested, is to email me a resume and an informal cover letter. Please email me a note with your skills / experience and why you want to work for me:

You can provide references later.

As well as emailing me, please take the following, brief, free, private, online survey:

A few sentences from Phoenix:

“Working with Aciu Institute, LLC and David Oaks has been a wonderful experience. I was able to combine my passion for activism with a job that suited my organizational and administrative skills. I learned so much about the psychiatric survivor movement, as well as disability and mental health rights in Eugene.”
