The Pensive Reflections of the Folks on the Ground
We are hiring a motivated, innovative, and versatile individual willing to work diligently to help us dismantle structural racism and promote equity in the youth and adult justice system. The CJNY Network Organizer will have a specific focus on supporting CJNY Task Forces and will need to possess skills in community organizing. The ideal candidate will also have skills in youth development, facilitation, public speaking, event planning and systems reform.
We hopped into our cars and headed to San Jose from June 24– 28th to engage in important strategy conversations around inequity, migration issues, and a vision for the future of the Bay Area. The U.S. Social Forum’s focus on social and economic inequities that disproportionately and overwhelmingly affect communities of color was a central issue that strongly resonates with CJNY.
