Jewish Voice for Peace Seeks NYC Organizer

The New York City chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace is growing rapidly, and we are looking for an experienced and energetic part-time, Local Organizer to expand our potential. Jewish Voice for Peace is a national grassroots organization dedicated to a US foreign policy toward Israel and Palestine that promotes equality, human rights, and respect for international law. The NYC Local Organizer will organize with local activists in the five boroughs to achieve concrete results and change the discourse on Israel/Palestine in our city.

The NYC Local Organizer will be a part of the National JVP Organizing team, but will be focused on New York-based campaigns and issues. The organizer will be responsible for fostering leadership among chapter members and reaching out to potential members. The NYC Local Organizer will coordinate responses to emergency situations as they arise and be an ongoing liaison between the chapter and the national staff. The organizer will play a key role in moving forward the chapter’s efforts to launch a divestment campaign, as part of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement.
