Worker’s Justice Project (WJP) (www.workersjustice.org), a fiscally-sponsored organization of TSNE MissionWorks (www.tsne.org), was founded in 2010 to address the racial and economic injustices that day laborers face by building collective power to win institutional change. WJP runs two long-standing worker’s centers in Brooklyn. We promote justice and opportunity for low-wage immigrant workers in New York City by pushing for systematic enforcement and expansion of workplace protections, including labor and occupational health and safety standards; advocating for industry-specific efforts to improve working conditions; offer skills-building training to workers in health & safety and industry-specific areas; and educating immigrant communities about their rights in the workplace and how to exercise those rights.
Worker’s Justice Project is seeking an exceptionally qualified candidate for the role of Census Manager (Bilingual). In collaboration with NYC Census 2020, the Census Manager will oversee WJP’s census engagement and outreach plan to educate community members about the significance of the census and the importance of census self-response; identify and dismantle barriers to census participation; and connect New Yorkers to the tools and resources they need to participate in the 2020 census. To support a fair and complete count, WJP is working in partnership with the City University of New York (CUNY), Mayor de Blasio’s NYC Census 2020 office, and the New York City Council to mobilize New Yorkers to self-respond to the 2020 census.
The Census Manager must have native or near-native fluency in the Spanish language and will be working in both WJP worker center locations [Williamsburg & Sunset Park] in Brooklyn. The ideal candidate will not only align with WJP’s vision and politics, but also have a proven track record of organizing experience, delegating among their team, and following through to the last detail.
This is an exempt, salaried position and reports to the WJP’s Director. The Census Manager will join weekly strategy team sessions and will check in approximately every two weeks with a supervisor to receive support in staff development and work plan implementation.
