The mission of the D.C. Employment Justice Center is to secure, protect and promote workplace justice in the D.C. metropolitan area. Their advocacy work on behalf of low-wage workers includes legal advocacy, policy and legislative reform, community organizing and education.
And for the first time this year, the Loretto Volunteer Program is offering a position there, a Workers' Rights Clinic Outreach Coordinator. This volunteer will support EJC's successful Workers' Rights Clinics, which offer walk-in legal support to low-wage workers with workplace legal concerns. The Loretto Volunteer will help expand access to this service by implementing their mobile clinic project - helping to identify communities in need of their services; developing partnerships with other nonprofits to establish mobile clinic sites; coordinating the on-site logistics of the clinic; recruiting volunteers; and working with clients. As the majority of their clients are Spanish speakers, Spanish fluency is required for this position.
This is a great opportunity to gain experience in the fields of worker justice, community organizing and legal services.
The Loretto Volunteer priority application deadline is February 1 - so get started on your application today. For questions about this or any of our available positions, email Katie Jones, Loretto Volunteer Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
