Based in Washington, D.C.
National CAPACD seeks a talented and engaging Policy Director to lead its policy and advocacy initiatives aimed at preventing the displacement of low-income Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
The Policy Director will work closely with program and senior staff and member organizations to identify solutions and address the greatest threat to housing stability for over two million low-income AAPIs: displacement due to gentrification and high cost housing. Almost 75% of AAPIs in poverty live in high housing cost metropolitan areas and approximately 65% of AAPIs in poverty live in high housing cost zip codes – these concentrations are higher than for any other racial or ethnic group and over double the proportion of the general poverty population.
