Job Posting: Gun Violence Prevention Lead Organizer


About the Organization: End Gun Violence Michigan is a coalition of 47 faith, community, teacher, student and parent organizations working to prevent gun violence in our state. We formed in the aftermath of the Oxford High School shooting with the goal of building an advocacy coalition with enough power to beat the gun industry. We were instrumental in the campaigns that resulted in the passage of Michigan’s first new gun laws in forty years: extreme risk protection orders (ERPO), safe storage requirements, universal background checks, and stronger protections for domestic violence survivors. We us the tools of public education and mobilization, grassroots organizing, earned media, and advocacy to win change.

Our current goals are to: 1) Ensure that the laws passed in the last session are effectively and equitably implemented; 2) Win state funding for gun violence prevention programs; 3) Pass additional gun violence prevention laws in our state.

We believe in community and survivor leadership, bold action, building power, and never giving up.

EGVMI is currently a fiscally sponsored project of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan, though we have applied for independent 501c(3) status. EGVMI is an equal opportunity employer, and will not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, nationality, marital status, disability, or veteran status.
