About this Job

Activist in Residence ‘aka’ AIR is a new program of the Quixote Center that supports innovative, social justice community-oriented work. During the duration of the 9-month program, we aim to work with creative, committed and energetic individuals to assist in their development and execution of a unique program that challenges a specific dimension of injustice within the church and/or society at large. We encourage creativity in your proposal and are open to a variety of project ideas! However, projects must be based in the metropolitan area of Washington, DC or nearby states such as West Virginia, Delaware, or Pennsylvania.    

Along with managing their own project, the selected resident will be involved in the day-to-day operations of the Quixote Center. The resident will receive a modest monthly stipend for living expenses during the duration of the program.
