Futurewise seeks a Lead Organizer for our state policy work on climate change, race and social justice, and housing affordability. This is a full-time, 9 month temporary position.
The Lead Organizer is a 9-month, temporary, full-time position coordinating efforts to incorporate climate change, race and social justice, and housing affordability into Washington State’s Growth Management Act. If successful, these policy changes would result in the most significant update to Washington State’s land use planning laws since 1991, setting more favorable grounds for subsequent organizing at the state and local level. The Lead Organizer will work closely with the State Policy Director, Development Director, and Executive Director and will be responsible for coordination with partners, recruitment and engagement of grassroots supporters, and external communications.
The position requires experience with engaging grassroots community members, identifying and recruiting leaders, and mobilizing supporters to take action in support of policy goals. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamic, inter‐disciplinary, and innovative work environment, experimenting and using your creativity to overcome social distancing restrictions and build a more sustainable and equitable future for communities in Washington State.
