The Hunger Coalition is seeking a passionate Community Organizing Manager (COM) to build a grassroots, mission-focused advocacy program in Blaine County. This position requires stellar interpersonal skills, deep knowledge and understanding on how systems of oppression intersect with the lived experiences of our community members. The COM works toward empowering community members to be in the driver’s seat of policy change.
In the first year, the COM will develop and lead a team to identify specific issues brought forth from the impacted community. The team will identify top priorities and develop a comprehensive strategy that works toward dismantling systemic structures that directly impact the various communities experiencing food insecurity in Blaine County. It is imperative that this is a community-led and community-driven effort. To do this, the COM will build a team culture which will develop deep trust through curiosity, empathy and solidarity.
A key role of the COM is to develop deep relationships with community leaders, members, partner organizations, Promotoras, and other advocates in the field to build a strong foundation that will lead us to intentional engagement and mobilization for policy and systems change.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women/other underrepresented individuals only apply when they meet 100% of them. We believe that people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ+ people must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities, or who are members of other marginalized communities. If you think you have what it takes, possess transferable skills, are quick to learn, but don’t necessarily satisfy every requirement or meet every qualification, we would love to hear from you!
