Position Description

Community Change is a national organization working to end poverty, and since 1968, it has built the power of directly affected people to lead that work. Committed to the leadership of communities of color, Community Change partners with grassroots organizations to fuel a movement capable of achieving a shared vision of a country where all people and communities thrive. The Policy Advisor will research, develop, and advance policy and legislative proposals as part of the Community Change Policy Team’s work on priority issue areas. These include poverty reduction, immigration reform, economic and racial justice, and early learning and care. The analyst will work in close coordination with Community Change’s communications and organizing staff and will also collaborate with other DC-based national organizations that are working on similar issues. In addition, the advisor will help to disseminate and amplify bold policy solutions and will play a key role in advancing the organizational priorities of Community Change.
