National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) Seeks Housing Advocacy Organizer


NLIHC is accepting applications for the position of housing advocacy organizer. As a member of the NLIHC field team, the housing advocacy organizer mobilizes NLIHC members on federal policy advocacy based on NLIHC’s approved policy agenda, assists in the design and implementation of campaign field strategies, and conducts outreach activities in specific states. The organizer will spend significant time developing and retaining NLIHC membership, increasing endorsements for NLIHC campaigns, and mobilizing membership and state coalition partners on “calls to action” and other organizing efforts in support of socially just affordable housing policy that ensures the lowest income people in the U.S. have decent, affordable homes.

 

The position requires strong written and oral communication skills and excellent electronic technology skills, including proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite, database management, and social media use; some familiarity with customer relationship management systems like Salesforce would be a plus. Priority consideration will be given to candidates with proven organizing experience mobilizing a community or constituent base at a national, state, or local level. Some knowledge of federal housing policy is a plus. A bachelor’s degree is required. The position is based in Washington, DC. Some travel is required.

 

An equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, NLIHC offers a competitive salary and benefits package.

 

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter with salary requirements, resume, and two writing samples to Renee Willis, vice president for field and communications, National Low Income Housing Coalition, 1000 Vermont Avenue, NW, Suite 500, Washington, D.C. 20005 to rwillis@nlihc.org.
