All In For Washington seeks an ambitious, experienced leader who is committed to building power in communities of color to oversee a multi-tiered strategy for change, as our Campaign Director. This person will supervise the Lead Organizer, and report to the All In For Washington steering committee. This is a full-time, senior-level position based in Seattle, Washington with some statewide travel required.
About Our Work
Washington has the most upside-down tax code in the country, meaning working families and the middle class pay a far greater share of their income in taxes – as much as six times the rate the wealthiest pay. That means we don’t have the resources our communities need for great schools, mental healthcare, affordable college, ending homelessness and more. Everyone has a stake in making our tax code work for us.
All In For Washington (“All In”) is a campaign to build grassroots power in communities of color across Washington to lead organizing, communications and policy strategies to ultimately rebalance the state tax code so that everyone chips in their share and all of our communities have the resources we need to thrive (www.allinforwa.org). We are led by a steering committee of ten organizations representing communities of color and low-income communities.
This is a senior level position. We are seeking someone experienced to drive forward a plan and vision for the campaign, authentically engage communities of color, and manage our organizing, policy, and communications strategies. Collaboration is key, and the Campaign Director will work with several partner organizations to execute the work. An office is provided at the Washington State Budget & Policy Center, a fiscal sponsor of All In For Washington.
