Job Description:

ALL APPLICANTS MUST SUBMIT COVER LETTER WITH RESUME. About Center for Community Alternatives: Center for Community Alternatives (CCA) was founded in 1981 with the belief that solutions to poverty, addiction, and violence rest in communities, not imprisonment. Recognizing the devastating impact of incarceration on low-income communities and communities of color, CCA became one of the first community-based alternative-to-incarceration programs in New York State. Today, CCA continues to be a leader in decarceration efforts through organizing, advocacy, and direct services. Our work is informed and guided by the adults, youth and communities we serve and organize alongside. Position Description: Center for Community Alternatives is hiring a Statewide Organizer in Syracuse who will be responsible for building a base of campaign members and leaders, coordinating coalitions, and playing a key role in our advocacy, policy, and campaign efforts to dismantle systems of mass incarceration and mass criminalization. Current advocacy includes parole justice and sentencing reform, as well as other efforts to decarcerate jails and prisons and win real investments in community-based resources and services. We are looking for candidates who have experience working on grassroots campaigns, have strong base-building and leadership development skills, and are committed to building power to win transformative policy and legislative change. Ideal candidates are strategic, passionate, and collaborative. This is a full-time position. While we are currently all-remote, when public health allows it, this position will require regular travel to Albany and other parts of New York State, including occasional overnight travel.

Ensure the leadership of impacted campaign members in planning rallies, town halls, press conferences and lobby days. Policy & Legislative Advocacy : Play a key role in coordinating Albany-based events, scheduling and planning meetings with elected officials and developing campaign materials. Stay up-to-speed with policy issues and support the political and policy education of members. Engage in campaign strategy development and execution. Communications : Participate in writing op-eds, letters to the editors, press quotes, and social media posts. Work with campaign members to develop materials that elevate their voices. Prepare members for press interviews and other public speaking roles. General Support : Manage day to day operations and provide administrative support as needed. Requirements & Qualifications : Ideal candidates are self-motivated and passionate with strong speaking, writing and interpersonal skills and a clear commitment to racial and economic justice. In addition, we are looking for these qualifications and skills: 3+ years of relevant experience, including community organizing and work on issue or policy campaigns. A serious commitment to dismantling systems of mass criminalization and to building the leadership of directly impacted people. An understanding of the criminal legal system and key policy issues. Experience with base-building, identifying and supporting members, and leadership development. Demonstrated ability to build organizational partnerships, coordinate coalitions, and effectively facilitate meetings. Knowledge and experience organizing events and actions, such as press conferences, rallies, trainings, teach-ins, and town halls. Excellent oral and written communication skills. Top-notch organizational skills. Enthusiasm for working collaboratively, as well as an ability to work independently and effectively move work forward. Flexibility for statewide travel and ability to work some evenings and weekends. People who have been impacted by the criminal legal system or are formerly incarcerated are encouraged to apply. Salary 48,000-50,000, commensurate with experience. Excellent benefits. CCA is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
