LAWRS are excited to open this call for a brand new project! They are seeking a highly-motivated Latin American woman who is committed to social change to join the team as Community Activist Coordinator. This is a new post at LAWRS.

The Community Activist Coordinator will develop, implement and coordinate LAWRS community organising work, building up on their existing development and group work with women workers, survivors of gender-based violence, and young women and girls.

The main duties of this post include:

  1. To facilitate existing and/or new groups of migrant women activists to enable them to organise themselves around the issues that they find most pressing; enable them to engage in LAWRS campaigning and policy work, and influence the power structures that affect their situations; and implement group action plans.
  2. To develop and implement a community organising training programme for Latin American women that is grounded in feminist values and a human rights approach, and which builds upon Latin American cultural and political traditions of collective action.
  3. To increase LAWRS capacity to engage community organising work in the design, implementation and evaluation of its work. This work will involve coordinating training, working with an external consultant, producing guidelines that incorporate key components: power map analysis, membership base of activists, one-to-one conversations and listening campaigns.

You will have an excellent command of English and Spanish. Ability to speak Portuguese is desirable.
