About the Role
The Economic Justice Coordinator will support the Director in a new, collaborative project to build a South Bay table to re-envision regional economic development planning. Through partnership, collaboration, and engaging workers and residents at the grassroots, this project seeks to collectively create a new approach to economic development, centered around the values of equity, high-road employment, sustainability and climate resilience, and shaped by workers and impacted community members themselves. This work is seeded by California’s new Community Economic Resilience Fund (CERF) initiative.
The ideal candidate will have experience managing partnerships and coalitions, familiarity with Silicon Valley’s diverse communities, and a commitment to transformative power-building for economic, racial and gender justice.
