Written/ Multimedia Content Creator and Digital Organizer

WHY WORK FOR AIM/ACT/PATH

We are three sister organizations focused on building people power with local congregations and schools in Maryland. We train and develop community leaders to act on issues of economic justice and racial equity, to hold elected and corporate officials accountable, and to act together to win needed changes.

  • Big Impact: We have impacted tens of thousands of people by organizing people power to shape education, housing, jobs, youth, racial equity and economic justice. We are a vehicle for community leaders to act together, giving them a seat at the table that shapes Maryland and consequently, the national landscape.
  • Great People: Work alongside and in the service of a talented, visionary, dedicated and diverse team of leaders. We are driven to build power for the people and we work hard. We take the work seriously but try to not take ourselves too seriously. We also strive to do so with joy, a sense of humor and balance.
  • Opportunity to Grow: We aim for a work culture of learning, growth, and development. We strive to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to work on projects that stretch them and are deeply meaningful. We all roll up our sleeves to pull our weight when tasks need to get done and collaborate on collective actions. Be a part of a team made up of interesting, smart, passionate people who are deeply committed to their growth and the growth of each other. We are connected to a statewide, regional and national network of other like-minded organizations including the Washington Interfaith Network, Greater Cleveland Congregations, Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, and Common Ground in Milwaukee.

We are an equal opportunity employer. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) are strongly encouraged to apply.
