The People’s Coalition for Safety & Freedom is seeking a National Coordinator, who can help lead and support the design, development, and implementation of a People’s Process, an unprecedented effort to democratize policy making by engaging in a community process to collectively write federal legislation that redefines safety and invests in our communities.

The People’s Process will include town halls, surveys of community members, teach-ins, research on behalf of community organizations, community driven drafts and reviews of legislation, and people’s movement assemblies.

- Coordinator PCSF working groups to support People’s Process strategy

- A political commitment to decarceration and creating a space for Black queer feminist work and leaders;
- A plus, but not necessary: policy writing and advocacy experience
- Minimum base salary is $60,000- actual salary may vary with experience
- Though the position is presently 12 months, the Coalition expects to fundraise additional funds to extend the length of the position
- Position is remote
