Description

PACT is a diverse and multi-faith coalition of 37 congregations and two universities fighting for racial and economic justice in Miami-Dade County. Our shared faith values call us to work collectively for systemic change, transforming Miami-Dade into a community that reflects the dignity of all people.

 

Since our founding in 1988, PACT has won a wide range of victories including: criminal justice system reforms to stop the growing criminalization of children, expansion of public transportation, affordable housing and job opportunities, and reforms to plug the school-to-prison pipeline by ensuring fair discipline policies in Miami-Dade public schools. 


PACT 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.

Benefits

Starting salary is $34,000-36,000/year 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. Retirement benefits begin after a prescribed period (usually one full year of employment).
