Reclaim Philadelphia is accepting applications for a full time housing justice organizer to join our staff. The housing justice organizer would

develop our current housing campaign to illustrate strategy and outline tactics toward winning rent control in Philadelphia, and work as the local liaison for the national People’s Action Homes Guarantee team to ultimately win transformative investments in social and public housing and reparations for racist home ownership policies.
develop political education segments for all media and meetings using individual stories to highlight the impact of our current housing system, explain housing policy using accessible language and methods of engagement and shift the narrative toward housing as a human right.
develop the current leadership team and new leaders with the intention of increasing our capacity to engage members, build power for the housing movement in Philadelphia and empower individuals impacted by housing insecurity to take leadership in demanding housing as a human right.
Salary begins at $40,000 per year and includes full health benefits and expansive paid time off.

While our ideal candidate has organizing experience, compatible political analysis and has been directly impacted by housing injustice, we are open to all applicants and invite all interested applicants to apply by sending a resume and cover letter (including your personal stake in expanding housing justice in Philadelphia) to Reclaim Philadelphia’s lead organizer Kelly Morton at kelly@reclaimphiladelphia.org
