Regional Organizer

NACA seeks seasoned organizers to build NACA’s volunteer base, develop leaders and engage in campaigns and advocacy. The organizers will engage NACA’s over two million Members (individuals who participate in NACA programs) and a broader coalition working toward NACA’s mission to fight for economic justice through activities and campaigns addressing voting access, student debt, criminal justice, political fairness, and more. Advocacy efforts include ballot initiatives, campaigns and activities targeting individuals, companies and governmental policies. The organizer will also lead widespread initiatives among NACA’s Membership and volunteer base. These include voter registration, voter participation, and engaging NACA’s Members in programs and community action.

The Regional Organizers will be responsible for outreach and activities within their designated geographical region. They will occasionally work in other regions as necessary. He/she would work closely with other regional organizers, NACA’s CEO and the management team. NACA’s campaigns and advocacy efforts involve extensive research, targeted litigation, regulatory advocacy, legislative and ballot initiatives, and demonstrations and actions directed against individuals, corporations, and government entities that are on the wrong side of fair lending and economic justice issues. NACA’s advocacy approach is based on confrontational, aggressive direct action to confront the CEOs and decision makers where they live and socialize. These sometimes require non-violent civil disobedience, and the Regional Organizers will be at the forefront of these actions and will be responsible for involving Members and supporters.
