Regional Project Coordinator - Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina


Description of Organization

Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, Inc. (CDM) is the first transnational migrant workers’ rights organization based in Mexico to support migrant worker organizing and advocacy on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Since its founding, CDM has been driven by its mission to improve the conditions of low-wage workers in the United States. With a binational, multilingual staff and geographic reach, CDM has grown over the past 15 years in response to an increasing need, but its end goal remains unchanged: to overcome the border as a barrier to justice.

CDM envisions a world where migrant workers’ rights are respected, and laws and policies reflect their voices. Through multilayered outreach and engagement strategies, CDM supports migrant workers to defend and protect their rights during recruitment, while at work in the U.S., and as they return to their home communities. Further information about our work and projects is available on our website: www.cdmigrante.org [1]

Position Summary

Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, Inc. (CDM) seeks a Regional Project Coordinator to join its dynamic, binational team of migrant workers’ rights advocates. This is a unique opportunity to support CDM’s Protein Processing Workers Project (PPP), an initiative focused on ensuring health and safety for workers employed in protein processing (seafood, meat and poultry).

This is a grant-funded position. Candidates must be able to work remotely within Georgia, North Carolina, or South Carolina, and be available to travel up to 15% of the time.
