Campaign Director for Immigrant Justice

Position Location: Flexible

The Center for Popular Democracy/CPD Action (CPD/CPDA) is seeking a full-time Campaign Director for Immigrant Justice.

The Center for Popular Democracy/CPD Action builds organizing power and transforms the local, state, and national policy landscape through deep, long-term partnerships with leading community organizing groups and labor unions nationwide. CPD/CPDA collaborates with partners to build their internal strength, infrastructure and capacity – and to envision, run, and win campaigns to move a pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial justice agenda at the city and state level.

About the Position:

CPD/CPDA is seeking a Campaign Director for Immigrant Justice who will work closely with local community organizations to envision and win city and state policy victories that advance immigrant justice, and to replicate strategies to protect immigrant communities from current anti-immigrant attacks. This person will work closely with the Director of Immigrant Justice and Leadership and the Senior Staff Attorney for Immigrant Rights, as well CPD’s communications and campaign staff, to coordinate national support for state-based community organizations leading these fights on the ground. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to help strengthen the immigrant rights movement and support grassroots organizations at the forefront of this fight.

  • Serve as the primary campaigner for rapid-response immigrant defensive battles in cities and states where our partners are positioned to lead;

  • Stay updated on the most cutting edge research and policies that advance immigrant justice reform.
