  • San Jose, CA
  • Full Time
  • $80,000 - $90,000 annual salary commensurate with experience. USD / Year

The ideal Lead Organizer will possess a strong commitment to health justice, is passionate about the rights of patients and excited about developing the leadership capacity and grassroots activism of patient populations to launch and win patient-led health justice campaigns. This role entails directing the organizing team, developing and executing organizing campaigns, building a base of patient leaders, conducting training sessions and facilitating organizing and campaign meetings while fostering mutual aid and community building among our members.

The Lead Organizer and Campaigner will expand, execute, and monitor efforts to develop the skills, consciousness, and involvement of grassroots patient leaders, support building the political consciousness of potential allies, and create a culture of organizing and transformation across agency programs. The Lead Organizer will be instrumental in planning and implementing policy campaign activities to exercise grassroots power and will support the establishment of a sustainable, patient-led organization. Additionally, this position will act as a bridge between internal programs, patient leaders, and community collaborators. Health care is a human right. We understand that the issues that arise from a broken health system affect the Latino/x/é and other underrepresented patient populations the hardest. These injustices are predictable and preventable. The health injustices patients experience are not one-off events. We want to be an organization that not only supports patients to overcome these inequities – we want to hold space for the leadership of impacted patients to eliminate them through power building and systems change. A qualified candidate should be equally committed to a vision for healthcare and health justice for all.
