      Accountable Development Program Organizer
      Job Announcement

      The East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy (EBASE) is at the forefront
      of the economic justice movement in the East Bay.  We build coalitions of
      labor unions, community and faith-based organizations to win strategic
      policies that increase incomes for low-wage workers and empower residents of
      low-income communities.  EBASE has led winning campaigns for economic equity
      policies at the Port of Oakland and several East Bay cities.

      We are seeking an experienced organizer for our growing Accountable
      Development program.  The goals of the program are to hold developers and
      local governments accountable for providing good jobs and community benefits
      in new developments.  The organizer will be responsible for building
      coalitions to win Community Benefits Agreements that can include union jobs
      with living wages and health benefits, local hiring and job training
      programs, affordable housing and neighborhood services such as child care.
      The organizer will also bring together community support for policies to
      ensure that future development benefits residents and low-wage workers.  The
      position will report to an EBASE Co-Director.

      Responsibilities Include:
      *         Convene, support and mobilize coalitions of community
      organizations, labor unions, and religious leaders for Accountable
      Development campaigns.
      *         Organize members of affected communities to take action.
      *         Identify, recruit, and develop leaders.
      *         Organize and facilitate meetings of community members and
      *         Perform administrative tasks necessary to the program.

      Experience and Abilities Required:
      *         At least two years of organizing experience, preferably in a
      campaign environment.
      *         Demonstrated ability to lead groups of people and motivate others
      to take action.
      *         Commitment to economic and social justice.
      *         Accountability to goals.
      *         Willingness to work long hours and weekends as needed.
      *         Experience working with diverse constituencies.
      *         Ability to work independently within the context of an overall
      plan and structure.

      *         Willingness to learn new techniques and skills.

      Salary range: $30,000-$40,000, depending on experience. Excellent benefits
      package including employer-paid health and dental insurance, and pension.
