BOLD Justice is a diverse and multi-faith coalition of 20 congregations fighting for racial and economic justice in Broward County. Our shared faith values call us to work collectively for systemic change, transforming Broward County into a community that reflects the dignity of all people. 


Since forming in 2007, BOLD Justice has won expanded access to affordable housing and job opportunities, criminal justice system reforms to stop the growing criminalization of children and provide substance abuse treatment instead of incarceration, and more. 

BOLD Justice is part of the DART network of organizations, one of the largest networks of faith-based community organizations in the country.


We're hiring a full-time community organizer who will build relationships with faith leaders and community members from diverse backgrounds, train and develop their organizing skills, and deepen their participation in the work of the organization.


During your first five months, you will receive intensive on-the-job training through the DART Organizers Institute. You will learn basic organizing principles and develop key organizing skills including: finding and developing leaders, issue research and strategy, power analysis, and one-to-one meetings. Ongoing professional development will continue through individualized coaching and mentoring, as well as local, regional, and national staff trainings and retreats.


People of color and fluent speakers of Spanish or Haitian Creole are strongly encouraged to apply. No prior organizing experience is necessary. Qualities we look for include:


  • Core passion for justice and equality
  • Excellent relationship-building skills
  • Exceptional work ethic
  • Comfort working with religious institutions


By August 13, 2018 you'll also need a bachelor's degree or equivalent professional experience, access to a car, and proof of US citizenship, permanent residency, or deferred action for childhood arrivals.


Starting salary is $34,000 annually plus health benefits, with regular cost of living increases and performance based raises. For candidates relocating more than 50 miles, $250 is paid to help cover relocation costs. Employer retirement contributions begin after one year of employment.
