Careers

Do you have a fire for justice?

ACCE Institute is a POC-led organization with a powerful multi-racial team, made stronger by our ability to collaborate and leverage our diversity across gender, age, upbringing, education, talent, and life experience. We are committed to high standards, high impact, and working with deep respect for one another, our members, and our partners.

  • Employees at ACCE Institute have a fire for building the grassroots power needed to create structural change that will result in true liberation and justice for all. The innovative and persistent ACCE team is spread across our 5 offices (located in Oakland, Richmond, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego).

  • If you believe in social, economic, and racial justice, and community organizing from the ground up, you may be a good fit with ACCE. If you are as passionate as we are about ground up base building, membership recruitment, door to door outreach, grassroots fundraising, issue and corporate campaigning, earned media and storytelling, technology and organizational growth - and you have the skills, experience, and/or drive to make a difference, we want to hear from you. Let us know who you are and what you can bring to this work.
