About the job
Justice at Work - Philadelphia, PA
Justice at Work (JAW), formerly known as Friends of Farmworkers, has been advancing the rights of workers in Pennsylvania for more than 45 years. While originally focused on agricultural workers, they now provide legal aid, community education, and advocacy to immigrant and low-wage workers across industries. JAW recognizes that justice is a process, not necessarily a particular result. They use a variety of tools to help people achieve lasting change in their communities. JAW connects clients to meaningful information that they can share with others to effect change.
The Executive Director of Justice at Work leads the organization in the day-to-day pursuit of its mission, appearing on behalf of the organization and the movement it represents, hiring and directing staff and consultants, responsible for fundraising, directing its programmatic, policy, and legal activities and carrying out strategies and policies set by the Board.
Successful candidates will have 8-10 years of progressive leadership experience in the nonprofit sector, preferably with organizations committed to working with underserved clients and communities. Additionally, experience working in immigration and/or employment law is highly desirable.
