Check with seller Community Organizer with MORE Justice Columbia

Published date: April 3, 2022
  • Location: Columbia, South Carolina, United States

Who We Are:

Midlands Organized Response for Equity and Justice (MORE Justice) is a multi-faith coalition of 33 congregations fighting for racial and economic justice in the Central Midlands area.

MORE Justice is part of The Direct Action and Research Training Center (DART), one of the largest faith-based community organizing networks in the country. Our 28 affiliated organizations span 9 states. By harnessing the power of organized people, these organizations hold political and economic systems accountable for acting fairly—pushing them to become more equitable and just. Since 1982 we have fought for and won policy changes that have addressed systemic failures which disproportionately harm low-income communities as well as communities of color. Some of our collective victories include:

  • Hundreds of millions of dollars invested in affordable housing
  • Implementation of fair discipline policies in hundreds of schools, breaking the school-to-prison pipeline
  • Nearly $950 million invested in public transportation
  • Criminal justice reforms resulting in 5,000 fewer arrests of children in Florida each year

Why Choose DART

DART is a network of doers. We understand that the road to a society free of racism and economic injustice is a long one that requires dedication and persistence. To create lasting change, we must do work that extends beyond charity and advocacy—while important, these efforts generally only serve as temporary solutions to permanent, systemic problems. In a world where the interests of the wealthy are prioritized, DART seeks to create communities that honor people power as the true catalyst for change.

DART stands out from other organizing networks thanks to our unrivaled investment in our team members through intentional training and development. You do not need to have prior organizing experience, as we provide the training you’ll need to be successful. During your first five months, you will receive intensive on-the-job training through the DART Organizers Institute. You will learn basic organizing principles and develop key organizing skills including: finding and developing leaders, issue research and strategy, power analysis, and one-to-one meetings. Ongoing professional development will continue through individualized coaching and mentoring, as well as local, regional, and national staff trainings and retreats.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Train and develop grassroots faith leaders on how to engage others within their congregations in the fight for justice
  • Guide grassroots faith leaders in conducting research and developing action plans for winnable issue campaigns
  • Recruit new grassroots faith leaders and congregations into the organization
  • Organize public actions

Who You Are

DART community organizers have a passion for justice and a strong desire to make change. As an ideal candidate, you are someone who is naturally curious, values strong relationships, and is energized by the prospect of uniting people around a common cause. Community organizers are afforded a great deal of autonomy when it comes to building their schedules. They also need to make themselves available to community members, many of whom work during the day, which may require organizers to work nights and weekends.

The ideal candidate does not have to be personally religious. Because you will be working with faith communities on a daily basis, you should have a genuine respect for the faith traditions of others.

DART organizations are diverse coalitions that include communities of color, low-to-moderate-income communities and immigrant communities. We strongly encourage people from these backgrounds, as well as fluent Spanish speakers and DACA recipients, to apply.

Skills and Characteristics:

  • Core passion for justice and equity
  • Excellent relationship-building skills
  • Commitment to excellence in carrying out the organization’s mission
  • Willingness to be trained to work with religious institutions
  • Possession of a valid driver’s license and access to a car

Compensation and Benefits:

Starting salary is $42,500 annually plus health benefits, paid vacation, parental leave, mileage reimbursement, and more. Employer retirement contributions of 10% begin after one year of employment.

DART organizations are all equal opportunity employers.
