About the position: As EOS’s Organizer, you will work jointly with current coalition members to plan our monthly meetings, maintain existing and build new relationships with organizations and individuals across the City of New Orleans, and help us implement our strategic plan, which focuses on community engagement and creating a vision of safety for New Orleans that doesn’t rely on policing, surveillance, and criminalization.

  4. You have experience, familiarity, or interest in how city budgets are allocated 
  5. You are committed to understanding how surveillance is tied to anti-Palestinian racism and the prison/military/border industrial complexes
  6. You are able to take initiative, work independently with guidance from coalition members, and ask questions 

It is appreciated, but not required, if you ...

  1. Are bilingual Spanish/English
  2. Have familiarity with Canva + social media management
