Lead Organizer, Economic Justice
Center for Popular Democracy, Fair Workweek Initiative
Based in New York City, NY
Join the next wave in the movement for economic justice in America.
Across the country, low-wage hourly workers struggle with jobs with unpredictable part-time hours, low wages and few benefits that strain their families and cause economic insecurity. The Center for Popular Democracy’s Fair Workweek Initiative (FWI) seeks a Lead Organizer to drive worker-driven corporate accountability campaigns to restore a family-sustaining workweek for the country’s hourly workforce.
More broadly, the Lead Organizer would work with CPD community affiliates and allied partners to organize working people nationally and through local field programs to drive coordinated economic justice campaigns that call for fair and full employment and a just democracy for working families.
