Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers: Director of policy & organizing

The Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers (MCDW) seeks a director of policy and advocacy to advance our mission to bring justice and dignity to all domestic workers in our state. Founded in 2010, MCDW was the driving force in passing the MA Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, which established important labor standards and granted basic protections to nannies, housekeepers, and other in-home caregivers.

With the passage of the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights behind us, our focus now is the implementation of the new law and continued advocacy on behalf of domestic workers. The Coalition is currently made up of five organizations: the Brazilian Women's Group, the Dominican Development Center, Matahari Women Workers’ Center, the New England Jewish Labor Committee and the Boston Center for Independent Living. MCDW is housed at the Matahari Women Workers’ Center.

Founded in 2002, Matahari Women Workers’ Center, a fiscally sponsored project of Third Sector New England (TSNE), is a Greater Boston social justice organization of women of color, immigrant women and families who organize as sisters, workers, and survivors for personal and societal transformation, justice and human rights. We build leadership and organize communities impacted by gender based violence and exploitation, provide survivor advocacy, and fight for the rights of those who suffer domestic, workplace, systemic, and state violence.

Muslim Justice League: Deputy director

The Muslim Justice League (MJL) is seeking a candidate with extraordinary judgment, well-honed people skills, and passion for human and civil rights to join its team as Deputy Director. This is a unique and rewarding opportunity to advance the mission of a locally driven non-profit already recognized for making a strong impact in its start-up phase.

The Deputy Director will manage MJL’s operational functions and also collaborate with the Executive Director to advance community education and organizing objectives. This position reports to the Executive Director, oversees interns and volunteers and, as MJL grows, may supervise additional staff. It is based at MJL’s office in Boston.

MJL is a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization defending human and civil rights against erosion under national security pretexts, through community education and organizing and legal and policy advocacy. It was founded in 2014 by four Muslim women in response to a need for locally driven advocacy by directly impacted communities to protect rights threatened in the name of counterterrorism. Its advocacy engages and advances the rights of people of all faiths and none. It is committed to critical analysis of the structural causes of rights violations and to promoting understanding of the connections among policies and practices that target various “suspect communities”.
