About Community Change and Community Change Action:
Community Change builds the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to lead powerful and dynamic movements for social change. With our community-based partner groups, we bridge the grassroots and the national, supporting outsider strategies to disrupt the status quo while also building pathways to influence the insider conversation.
Our vision of a better world centers the leadership of impacted people of color to move our work on immigrant rights, economic justice, and racial equity, including a focus on jobs and housing, early childhood care and education, income supports, and immigration reform.
This position also supports Community Change Action , an affiliated 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. While motivated by the same core values – equity, inclusion, and justice – Community Change and Community Change Action operate independently of one another and each organization has its own board of directors.
The Senior Policy Advisor will play a leadership role in the research and development of policy and legislative proposals relating to existing and future priority areas identified by Community Change and our local partner organizations. The Senior Policy Advisor will be part of the Policy Team, which is responsible for working with other Community Change staff and partner organizations to help develop and advance Community Change’s legislative agenda before Congress and the Administration, as well as supporting Community Change and its partners’ efforts to advance policy initiatives at the state and local levels.
A portion of time may be spent doing work for Community Change’s sister organization, Community Change Action.
