We seek an experienced Development and Communications Director to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week, with potential to transition to full-time. The Director will manage all fund development activities for the organization, including individual and institutional giving. In addition, the Director will supervise and manage the communications staff or intern for the organization.
The mission of the Fred T. Korematsu Institute is educating to advance racial equity, social justice, and human rights for all. Through education, we promote the significance and relevance of one of the most blatant forms of racism and civil rights violations in U.S. history: the forced removal and mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. One way we achieve this is by creating and distributing free multimedia Curriculum Toolkits for educators. These learning materials make connections between the WWII history and present-day racism, civil rights discrimination, and political scapegoating, such as mass incarceration, anti-immigrant sentiment, and xenophobia.
Recently, in response to current events and a growing need for public civic education, the Korematsu Institute is expanding beyond developing and distributing K-12 educational curricula. The additional main focus of our work is to educate and promote public civic engagement, especially around voting, the Census, and racism, at a critical time in our nation’s history.
Executive Director Karen Korematsu founded the Fred T. Korematsu Institute in 2009 to honor her father’s legacy. Originally a local community and education program, the Korematsu Institute expanded its vision in 2010 as a result of Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution being established in California. Today, we are a national organization that inspires and educates students and the public through Fred Korematsu’s story. Our overarching vision is to uphold all human and civil rights by inspiring people to "stand up for what is right." Learn more at www.korematsuinstitute.org.
