Strategic Campaigns Coordinator


The Food Chain Workers Alliance [1] (FCWA) is a bi-national coalition of 34 worker-based organizations whose members plant, harvest, process, pack, transport, prepare, serve, and sell food, organizing to improve wages and working conditions for all workers along the food chain. 

FCWA members organize locally and collectively to build a system that values and respects food workers and ensures that they share in the wealth of their labor and have the power to shape their working conditions and their lives. We believe this change is only possible with worker-based organization, worker solidarity, and the leadership of people of color, immigrants, women, and other frontline workers in alliance with a larger food movement grounded in social, racial and environmental justice. The Alliance has worked to fulfill this mission through worker-based organizing, worker leadership development, and critical policy innovations and interventions. 

The Position 

The Strategic Campaigns Coordinator will support the capacity of the FCWA Co-directors and staff teams in developing, implementing, and evaluating FCWA programming in support of our organizing vision, goals, and objectives as laid out by our member base, including strengthening organizing infrastructure, external alliances, and developing strategic campaigns.  

Main responsibilities include:

Expand and Strengthen FCWA Organizing Infrastructure and Member Organizing Capacity

  • Lead the development of rapid response systems to quickly scale up member campaigns and respond to urgent organizing needs, along with other infrastructure to support member organizing capacity, with support from FCWA organizing team.
  • Develop organizer roundtable to support member organizers to share strategies through a peer-learning process.
  • Work with Co-Directors and organizing team to support development and implementation of FCWA member leader program.

Strengthen FCWA External Alliances 

  • Develop and maintain relationships and represent FCWA in coalitions with labor and immigrant rights groups and unions engaged in advocacy on policy priority areas in support of FCWA and member strategies. 
  • Work with FCWA Development Co-ordinator and Co-Directors to help identify new sources of funding for organizing and cultivating new funder relationships.
  • Support Co-Directors and board to develop strategic growth processes for Alliance. 

Support the Development and Implementation of FCWA Strategic Organizing and Policy Campaigns 

  • Co-lead the process of identifying new FCWA collective organizing with the organizing team, board and members. 
  • Work with FCWA staff and members to design and implement winning strategies for priority issue campaigns that emerge from collective member planning processes.
  • Support strategic planning with our procurement policy work, especially as it relates to supporting worker organizing. 

Our IDEAL CANDIDATE will possess the following:

  • A minimum of 6-years of experience in worker based and grassroots organizing. The ideal candidate will have experience in both worker center and union organizing models. 
  • Demonstrated ability of meaningful engagement with marginalized workers and communities including immigrant, women, people of color, and/or gender non-conforming people.
  • Demonstrated commitment to building racial and social justice centered in worker leadership, community organizing, and popular education.
  • Experience building multi-racial and diverse coalitions and campaign strategies that center worker or directly affected community members’ leadership.
  • Experience developing policy recommendations and strategic policy campaigns.
  • Demonstrated experience assessing and acting creatively and swiftly on shifting conditions to advance campaigns – and demonstrated experience integrating policy, legal, research, strategic communications and other tactics in organizing campaigns.
  • Demonstrated experience leading projects.
  • Experience cultivating funder relationships and writing funding proposals for organizing.
  • Experience designing and facilitating organizing training using popular education methodologies.
  • Strong critical thinking and problem solving skills. 
  • Good time management skills and ability to prioritize tasks.
  • Ability to travel several times per year.
  • Detail-oriented and ability to work under pressure.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and verbal communication skills.
  • High levels of self-motivation and independence, as well as the ability to work as a team.
  • Ability and willingness to occasionally work non-traditional hours such as nights and weekends.
  • Bi- or multi-lingual (oral and written) in Spanish and/or another language is a plus.

The location for this position is flexible, though ideally it will be based in a region where there are current or potential FCWA members. The start date will be early May 2021.

COMPENSATION: Competitive salary commensurate with experience and excellent benefits package.

The FCWA is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages people of color, immigrants, food workers, women, non-binary, and LGBTQ individuals to apply.
