Are You A Black Communications Professional With a Passion for Social Justice and Racial Equality? Common Justice Needs YOU!
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on May 05, 2021 |
Common Justice is seeking a dynamic storyteller, culture shifter, and media relations expert to develop and implement strategies that embed anti-mass incarceration, racial equity, and survivor-centered narrative into the national dialogue to serve as its next Director of Communications. This person will work with the communications team to uplift stories and images that rarely make it into the mainstream media to compel a large number of key audiences to shift their assumptions about public safety, community health, and punishment.
This work will help society at large, as well as the arts and entertainment world, rethink its impact on race relations, resource distribution, ****, and crime. The areas of focus for this role will include narrative change strategy, media relations, the facilitation of collaboration among creative, and public engagement initiatives.
Common Justice develops and advances solutions to **** that transforms the lives of those harmed and fosters racial equity without relying on incarceration.
Locally, we operate the first alternative-to-incarceration and ****-service programs in the United States to focus on **** felonies in adult courts. Nationally, we leverage the lessons from our direct service to transform the justice system through partnerships, advocacy, and elevating the experience and power of those most impacted. Rigorous and hopeful, we build practical strategies to hold people accountable for harm, break cycles of ****, and secure safety, healing, and justice for survivors and their communities.
Common Justice’s work includes broad narrative-shifting efforts to support changes in both policy and culture. The organization is committed to telling the truth about ****—about the people who survive it, the people who cause it, and the strategies that will work to end it. The communications work creates and deploys broad new platforms to elevate the voices and leadership of those impacted by **** from the block to the Capitol.
*Formerly incarcerated people and/or survivors of **** strongly encouraged to apply.
