Position Description

Co-founded by the Food Chain Workers Alliance, the National Black Food & Justice Alliance, Real Food Generation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists, HEAL is a multi-sector, multi-racial coalition building collective power to transform food & farm systems, with racial justice and community self-determination at the core. HEAL is led by our member organizations, who represent over 2 million rural and urban farmers, ranchers, fishers, farm and food chain workers, indigenous groups, scientists, public health advocates, policy experts, community organizers, and activists nationwide. HEAL is committed to achieving food and farm systems that are healthy for families, accessible and affordable for all communities, and fair to the hard-working people who grow, distribute, prepare, and serve food — while protecting the air, water, and land everyone depends on. Working closely with HEAL’s Political Education team, the Campaigns Researcher will play an integral role in research, communications and campaign development to support HEAL’s work to advance the Platform for Real Food. They will provide critical background information and analysis for HEAL’s membership to achieve key policy outcomes.
