National Guestworker Alliance
Digital Campaigns Manager
May be located anywhere in the continental US (requires travel of up to 25% time).
The National Guestworker Alliance is seeking a creative, results-oriented digital campaigner to help us build and mobilize an online activist base. The ideal candidate is an exceptional writer and a thoughtful campaign strategist with a record of success using online tools to drive action and win campaigns.
Hundreds of thousands of workers enter the United States every year on temporary visas through the U.S. guestworker program. They work in critical industries, from landscaping to construction to education, in deeply exploitative conditions that frequently rise to the level of forced labor and involuntary servitude.
The National Guestworker Alliance (NGA) is a membership organization of guestworkers. Our members organize in labor camps across the United States to win collective dignity at work. We are building national power to win fairness in the terms of migration. We also partner with local workers—employed and unemployed—to strengthen U.S. social movements for racial and economic justice.
The NGA was formed in 2006 as the Alliance of Guestworkers after Hurricane Katrina, when thousands of guestworkers were brought to the U.S. and subjected to forced labor. Guestworkers in labor camps across the Gulf Coast came together to fight collectively for their dignity. NGA is a project of the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice.
Preferred (but not required) skills:
Location: Anywhere in the continental US (requires travel of up to 25% time)
