6/30: Community Organizer at The Direct Action & Research Training Center

DART is a network of 21 diverse and multi-faith community organizations fighting for racial and economic justice in the Midwest, Plains, and southeastern US. Our shared values call us to work collectively toward more just communities. Since 1982, DART network organizations have won multi-million dollar investments in affordable housing, increased access to primary health and dental care, statewide legislation to rein in the payday loan industry, protections for immigrant families, and criminal justice system reforms to reverse the growing criminalization of children and youth of color.

We’re hiring full-time community organizers who will build relationships with faith leaders and community members from diverse backgrounds, train and develop their organizing skills, and deepen their participation in the work of their local organizations.

Positions start August 12, 2019 in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Jacksonville, Polk County and Ft. Meyers, FL.
People of color and fluent speakers of Spanish or Haitian Creole are strongly encouraged to apply. No prior organizing experience is necessary. Qualities we look for include:
  • Core passion for justice and equality
  • Excellent relationship-building skills
  • Exceptional work ethic
  • Willingness to be trained to work with religious institutions
By your first day on the job (August 12, 2019), you’ll also need a bachelor’s degree or equivalent professional experience, access to a car, and proof of US citizenship, permanent residency, or deferred action for childhood arrivals.
Starting salary is $38,000 annually plus health benefits, with regular cost of living increases and performance-based raises. For candidates relocating more than 50 miles, $250 is paid to help cover relocation costs. Employer retirement contributions begin after one year of employment.
