Position: Statewide Senior Organizer

Full-time, permanent position

Location: Could be in Oakland, Richmond, Sacramento, Los Angeles or San Diego - in office 4 days a week.

Compensation: $82,535-$105,419 based on experience


Organization:  ACCE (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment) is on the frontlines of the fight for economic, racial and social justice. The organization is building the power of low-income communities of color across the state through base-building, leadership development, public campaigning, direct action, political education and strategic relationships.  ACCE has a membership base of over 18,000 community members, predominantly Latinx and African American, in six counties across California and has a track record of winning significant victories in campaigns for affordable housing, tenant’s rights, higher wages, racial justice, immigrant rights and more.   

Importantly, we do not do our work in isolation, but collaborate with many other aligned organizations and seek to build a broader movement for justice. As income and wealth inequality grow, attacks on the BIPOC community and immigrants are on the rise and the threat of authoritarianism is real, we seek staff members who are ready to throw down with our members to fight back and fight hard. 

Position:  This position is a statewide Campaign Lead with the potential to move into a campaign director position on a relatively quick timeline.  ACCE is looking for someone who has a passion for the fight for economic and racial justice, a desire to work with our growing membership to advance our fights, and an aptitude for strategic campaigning.  

The Campaign Lead will be leading several statewide issue-based campaigns (not electoral), as well as supporting local campaigns across the state. Working closely with the organization’s Campaign Director, as well as local staff and members, they will develop, drive and track the implementation of key campaigns. 

Location:  ACCE staff all work out of one of our five offices across the state - Sacramento, Richmond, Oakland, Los Angeles, or San Diego. One day a week we have the option of working remotely.
