NACA seeks seasoned organizers within the state of Georgia to build on NACA’s volunteer base, develop leaders and engage in campaigns and advocacy. The immediate goal is to flip Georgia so the state, local and federal governments better represent the needs of NACA members and its fellow community members. The long-term goal is to set up a permanent infrastructure of community organizing, where residents alongside NACA members will advocate and organize to drive lasting, structural change on issues of political power and economic justice. Specifically, the GCOs will engage NACA’s many thousands of Georgia members (individuals who participate in NACA programs) in voter registration, voter participation, accessing programs, and community action.
The Georgia Community Organizer ("GCO") will be responsible for outreach and activities within their designated geographical region. They will work in other regions as appropriate. S/he would work closely with other GCOs, NACA’s CEO and the management team. The GCO’s primary focus is to fully leverage NACA’s existing assets, including its active member base, its field office’s and NACA’s digital technology platform. Additionally, the GCO will strategically collaborate with existing community organizations when appropriate to amplify the impact.
The ideal candidate is an experienced community and/or political organizer with an accomplished record of leading successful campaigns with extensive experience in field leadership at a state, local or national level. S/he will have exceptional political savvy and persuasive speaking, writing, and influencing skills combined with a well-developed command of field operations, communications, and outreach best practices. It is essential that s/he has: a personal and professional commitment to social and economic justice; a strong work ethic; a relentless pursuit of success; comfort pushing forward in uncertain situations; and strongly supports NACA’s aggressive strategies, philosophy and tactics.
