Careers in Community Organizing Info Session

The Latino Student Association is hosting Clarissa Epps, a community organizer with the Direct Action & Research Training (DART) Center, for an information session to discuss careers in community organizing with individuals interested in uniting congregations and working for social, economic and racial justice.

All OSU students and alumni are welcome.


DART hires and trains organizers to build organizations that have successfully addressed issues including:

  • Plugging the school-to-prison pipeline
  • Reining in predatory lending practices
  • Expanding access to primary health and dental care
  • Prioritizing funding for affordable housing and job training
  • Education reform in low-performing public schools

Positions start August 15, 2016 in Charleston, SC, Columbus, OH, Lexington, KY, Miami and St. Petersburg, FL.

Starting salary $34,000/year + benefits.

Although it may be helpful, no prior organizing experience is necessary. Fluent speakers of Spanish and Haitian Creole are encouraged to apply.
