The Executive Director of National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) creates and executes a vision for the organization, setting the tone for the nation on intersectional issues of racial justice and LGBTQ equality. The Executive Director is the voice and advocate for NBJC and will steer the organization towards success in achieving its mission of ending racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma. The Executive Director will grow and evolve programs and operations of the organization, provide leadership and strategic vision for staff, collaborate with the CEO and Board to financially support the work through fundraising, and develop and cultivate professional relations.
The successful candidate will be an experienced leader with an interworking knowledge of the federal government and has experience working with either Congress, the White House, or both. The next Executive Director must be able to demonstrate the ability to cultivate and manage relationships with: government officials, both elected and appointed; other policymakers and influencers; and national and community partners. NBJC seeks a strategic thinker and mission-focused visionary with legislative experience and a familiarity with both the LGBTQ and Black civil rights communities and landscapes.
