Job Description

**Position:** Executive Administrative Coordinator
**Status:** Full-time, exempt
**Location/Time zone: **Anywhere in the U.S convenient to travel, with a strong preference to Eastern standard
**Deadline: **Open until filled
**Starting Salary Range: **$68,000-$83,000 annually

**About Us**
re:power is a national organization seeking to build a critical mass of social justice movements and their leaders who embody the ideology and practice of liberatory organizing, and organizing practice that is pro-Black and grounded in community, collective action and abundance. Our ultimate vision is a liberated, multiracial democracy, free from the oppressive systems of white supremacy and patriarchy.
We work towards our vision by offering training and strategic support to leaders and organizations across the progressive ecosystem. Our programming is designed to capture the full spectrum of leaders: the newly activated/newly politicized, the deeply engaged and committed, those who are seeing a values-aligned community and those who are ready to step into becoming the trainer themselves. re:power, and our sibling organization—re:power Fund (501c3)—creates opportunities to learn and develop hard skills, grow leadership, deepen political analysis, and build community through our five program areas: Movement Building, Movement Technology, Civic Engagement, Women of Color Leadership, and Governance.
Since 2019, re:power has been led by Karundi Williams, our first Black woman Executive Director, who has led our small but powerful organization to success. Over the five years, re:power has deepened our commitment to BIPOC organizers through an intentional focus on BIPOC, especially women of color and trans and gender expansive people of color. In 2022, we finalized a new strategic vision and direction which we are now actively working to implement over the next five years and includes ambitious programming, fundraising, and communications goals.
In the last four years, re:power has trained over 7,000 organizers, candidates, campaigners, and leaders across our movement. 74% of our alumni identify as BIPOC as do the majority of our trainers, 63% are women, 8% are trans and gender expansive, 38% are LGBQIA, and 14% are youth (ages 18–24). We are proud of what we’ve accomplished together in such a short time, and also know that in order for our communities to continue winning and driving positive change, we must keep building our skills, capacities and networks. At re:power, we thrive in this transformational work. Our team is laser-focused on achieving our mission. Join us!
