This position will be based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Organizational Summary

Restavek Freedom's mission: To end child slavery in Haiti in our lifetimes.

Every action we take — whether it be caring for restavek children, conversing with families about the harsh realities of the practice, or spurring community leaders to effect permanent change — is done with this goal in mind.

You can't end child slavery in the future unless you're working on behalf of child slaves in the present. That's why we've instituted programs to ADVOCATE on the behalf of restavek children.

Change in action requires change in attitudes. And changes in attitudes take time. With that in mind, we're devoted to engaging with cultural norms that contribute to restavek, exerting INFLUENCE over the way the practice is viewed.

Influence and advocacy can only go so far. Real change requires action. It requires courage and determination, a willingness to MOBILIZE for justice. It requires the government to pass laws and officers to enforce them. It requires religious and community leaders to stand up for justice, building a Haiti in which the word restavek is obsolete.

That's the Haiti we're working toward. Join our team!
