As more people wake up to the power and potential of grassroots organizing led by women of color and TGNC (transgender and gender non-conforming) people of color, our foundation finds itself in a moment of growth! We’re looking for talented, experienced individuals eager to join a collaborative team that’s working to organize resources to back up the brilliant leadership of our grantee partners.

We know it’s important that our staff have deep connections and experience with the diversity of people, organizations, and movements our work supports. As such, we especially seek applications from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, women, transgender and gender-nonconforming people, and LGBQ folks.
