We are assisting overlooked communities with envisioning the changes they want to see for where they live, identifying and pursuing available federal and other funding sources, and where relevant, tracking the implementation of the funding. We’ve also co-founded the MidAtlantic Justice Coalition (MAJC), which is building people power and forging a just society with good economic opportunities and a safe environment.

We are searching for a dynamic Digital Organizer to help us build and activate a broad grassroots base through strategic, online communications. We’re looking for someone who is tenacious and creative with a burning passion for working with communities to advance economic and environmental justice, and all human rights.

  • Develop, implement, and report on paid web/social media/print advertising campaigns.
  • Create and conduct trainings for grassroots partners, for example around social media usage, and general nonprofit marketing or communications best practices for organizing and advocacy.
  • Collaborate with grassroots partners to develop and execute digital storytelling campaigns that inform and inspire key audiences to take action. 
  • Draft and disseminate periodic advocacy e-mails and updates to our list of supporters. Support updating and maintenance of coalition mailing list data and segmentation.
