We are celebrating 15 years of movement building among our membership and allies! Our theme this year, “Moving Forward, Rising Together: United for Thriving Communities,” reflects our renewed focus on working in coalition with communities of color on issues of racial justice.
We seek a Membership and Communications Coordinator to develop our membership program and to manage internal and external communications related to membership. The position is critical for communicating the organization’s mission, values, and priorities to our membership.
National CAPACD will hold a press conference with U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Financial Services, to release the groundbreaking report, Scrimping + Saving.
National CAPACD seeks a collaborative, highly organized, and flexible individual to organize teams of member organizations across the U.S. to move forward a community development/community control advocacy agenda while implementing related programs. We believe that community residents and stakeholders – particularly low-income residents and people of color – should have more power and control over the physical, social, cultural, political, and economic future of their neighborhoods. Towards these ends, this position will require work with local, community-based nonprofit organizations around implementing and coordinating programming related to neighborhood planning and development, community organizing, and policy advocacy fighting gentrification and displacement.
