Massachusetts Advocates for Children (MAC), a highly respected state leader in essential child advocacy and education reform, is seeking a mission driven, strategic and collaborative leader.  The next Executive Director of MAC will have the opportunity to join a dynamic organization with a creative, family-friendly culture and make a significant impact on the lives of some of the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable children and families.   The Organization   MAC’s mission is to remove barriers to educational and life opportunities for children and youth. MAC’s core values shape the work it does, from its internal policies and practices to its advocacy with children and families:  Equity, Inclusion, Racial Justice, Systemic Impact, Self-Advocacy, Independence and Accountability, Whole Child Approach, Collaboration.   In 1969, MAC founder Hubie Jones, started noticing some inequities in Boston schools. An increasing number of parents were being told that their children should not return to school. Hubie created the Task Force on Children Out of School and released a report revealing 10,000 or more children were systematically excluded from Boston’s public education system, warehoused in classrooms or placed in schools that provided inferior or custodial care. The report led to the nation’s first bilingual and first special education laws and to the creation of MAC.   MAC’s current strategic directions include the following:   - Protect and expand educational rights of all students with disabilities, particularly those with autism;    - Transform school cultures to be inclusive, safe and supportive, and trauma-sensitive for all students;  - Keep children in school and out of the “school-to-prison pipeline”;   - Advocate for the educational rights of immigrant and Latinx children with disabilities;  - Eliminate opportunity and achievement gaps by advocating for racial equity in education;  - Promote self-advocacy for families and youth;  - Expand inclusive pathways to higher education and employment for older youth with disabilities; - Address the educational challenges faced by children and youth with behavioral health needs and / or those impacted by traumatic experiences Through our Children’s Law Support Project, MAC operates a statewide Helpline and leads the Education Law Task Force. MAC’s major programs include: - Disability Education Justice Initiative - The Racial Equity and Access Project  - Advancing the Education Rights of Immigrant Children - Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline MAC was launched in response to the widespread and systemic exclusion of disabled children and children of color from school and MAC remains committed to racial equity today.  Since 2016, MAC has been engaged in an organization-wide Racial Equity Initiative designed to make it better equipped to identify, name and respond to the effects of structural and other forms of racism in the Commonwealth’s educational systems. This has required an ongoing and deep transformation in the organization’s external programs and internal policies and practices, as well as in the composition of its board and staff leadership. Some concrete ways MAC uses a racial equity lens to guide its work include:  - Building a team that reflects the diversity of constituents and supporting a culture that reflects the values of equity, inclusion and belonging - Providing frequent learning opportunities focused directly on structural and institutional racism and racial bias - Strengthening relationships with partners working toward racial justice and organizations led by and primarily made up of people of color - Using disaggregated data to uncover and address racial disparities - Prioritizing client cases that address racial inequities - Advocating with and on behalf of students of color with equity and belonging as guiding principles The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures required major changes in how MAC does its work, but the organization’s mission has remained unchanged. The organization has adopted a hybrid structure with staff able to work from its Boston-based office or virtually from home.    MAC has a diverse, 10-member board of directors and an impassioned, committed staff of 14 with a flexible culture that values and promotes creativity.  MAC is a financially solvent organization with an annual operating budget of approximately $1.6M.
