OneAmerica is looking for an experienced organizer who is passionate about building relationships and ambitious about building grassroots power in immigrant communities. OneAmerica has recently undertaken a new strategic direction, doubling down on transformative organizing by building a movement in which leaders are developed through collective movement building. The Organizing Director will drive an ambitious program to build a base of grassroots leaders to fight for bold progressive policy change at the local, state and national levels. The Organizing Director will invest deeply in a team of talented organizing staff and work with them to align base building with issue campaigns, policy, movement/electoral politics, communications, and leadership training. This is the dream job for someone who wants to be on the front lines of the opposition to the current attacks on our immigrant and refugee communities, in an organization deeply committed to building power at scale through organized people, money and ideas. This position reports to the Deputy Director and works closely with the senior leadership of the organization.
This position will directly supervise a team of five organizers and serve on the Executive Team. This role is perfect for someone who is dedicated to investing in the leadership of their team, self-motivated, creative and eager to operationalize transformative organizing in immigrant and refugee communities. They will bring a deep understanding of grassroots leadership development, power building and an ability to lead strategic issue campaigns that ensures the voices of those most impacted by systemic inequities are at the center.
