Organizing Associate, Gun Violence Prevention and Criminal Justice Reform
Generation Progress has an immediate opening for an Organizing Associate. This position requires efficiently managing a large workflow of diverse projects. Applicants should enjoy detail-oriented work and troubleshooting and should also be able to adeptly build and manage organizing relationships across a broad coalition. Generation Progress is the youth advocacy and engagement arm of American Progress. Through field advocacy, journalism, and policy analysis, Generation Progress works with and for Millennials to achieve progressive change. This position will work primarily on the advocacy efforts of the #Fight4AFuture campaign—a nationwide campaign that looks at gun violence and criminal justice through a holistic lens and drives forward solutions that speak to our generation. Young people are shot and incarcerated at rates higher than any generation. This position will take an intersectional approach to addressing these issues. Instead of simply looking at gun violence prevention policies in a vacuum, this person will address contributing systemic factors—such as structural racism and poverty—and their policy solutions in a way that does not perpetuate the cycle of violence.
