Worker’s Justice Project (WJP) (workersjustice.org) was founded in 2010 to address the racial and economic injustices that low-wage immigrant workers face in New York City by building collective power to win institutional change.
WJP, a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org), 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, which include labor and occupational health and safety standards while advocating for industry-specific efforts to improve working conditions. WJP also offers skills-building training to workers in health & safety and industry-specific areas and we educate immigrant communities about their rights in the workplace and how to exercise those rights.
The Administrative Assistant (AA) proactively interfaces and works with WJP staff and TSNE, WJP’s fiscal sponsor (providing legal, contracts, human resources and financial and accounting support and oversight) to facilitate a smooth and timely process for workflows of information between WJP and TSNE, as required by TSNE policies, by WJP contractual obligations and by compliance considerations in all service programs. In a role supporting WJP development activities, the AA collaborates with the Executive Director and WJP staff to develop, manage and support fundraising and donor engagement and management activities, and related processes and systems.
This position is temporary through 6 months after hire the date. This position may be renewed depending on the availability of funding along with the need for continuation of this work.
