Now Hiring: NC Organizer, Inclusive Economy Network

This North Carolina-based organizer will support a coalition and its members to improve the lives of low-wage workers across NC.

Some pre-work has already been done and there is some consensus around what specific policies this coalition is likely to organize around. This coalition organizer will take it from here: move this consensus toward a campaign strategy and help manage day-to-day operation of the coalition in a manner that works toward shifting state policy. 

 

We value the leadership of people working at the grassroots level, and a successful coalition will be guided by, and informed by these workers and organizers. This coordinator will build strong relationships with coalition partners and support them in their work, and find areas of consensus and convergence with other key statewide partners.  

Who We Are: United for a Fair Economy is a national 501(c)3 organization that supports social movements fighting for a resilient, sustainable, and equitable economy.
