The Bronx Defenders Organizing Project seeks an energetic organizer passionate about systemic reform to join our dynamic team in serving the Bronx community.
The Bronx Defenders Organizing Project reaches beyond individual cases and uses community education, leadership development, impact litigation, and legislative reform to challenge entrenched problems that drive individuals into the justice system. We operate on multiple levels: as a provider of Holistic Defense working one-on-one with clients and families; as a community resource; and as a force for systemic change advocating with policymakers. We seek partnerships with community-based providers and leverage their expertise to ensure that our clients’ expressed needs are addressed. We also rely upon our deep connections to community members to alert us to emerging trends that directly impact our clients’ well-being.
The Organizing Project seeks to build and grow a Bronx membership base, while fostering relationships with key allies and stakeholders in the community to improve the lives of residents and the systems that are failing the Bronx community. Most importantly, the Organizing Project seeks to identify and develop community leaders to lead the charge.
