Just Recovery | Civic Engagement Fellow

2020 is a consequential year for California’s Latino community. The 2020 Presidential Election and the preparations for the 2020 Census are two opportunities to organize and mobilize California’s Latino community. Approved by California lawmakers in 2016, the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) expands voters’ options for how, when, and where they cast their ballots. Beginning in 2018, all registered voters in Napa County will be mailed a ballot and have the option to return it by mail or place it in a secure dropbox. Napa County is one of five counties in the state that will be testing out this new system designed to make voting easier by expanding voters’ options for how, when, and where they cast their ballots. It is vital that we inform the growing Latino community in Napa of these changes to our voting systems.

Following the 2017 wildfires in Napa and Sonoma Counties, the Latino Community Foundation community activated for a Just Recovery by investing in Latino leadership and joining forces with

grassroots nonprofits to mobilize the Latino vote. Consistent with LCF’s values of trust, hope, and leading from a place of strength, the Fellow will be a part of historic effort to change the Latino narrative in the North Bay by mobilizing Latino civic engagement during a critical moment in our nation’s history.

LCF seeks a dynamic and strategic leader from the region to join the LCF Programs and Policy team and the North Bay Organizing Project family. The Fellow will: 1.) learn about philanthropy and LCF’s dynamic model for social change; 2.) work on the frontlines of social change and be mentored by the North Bay Organizing Project; 3.) coordinate activities and ensure a successful partnership of Just Recovery cohort; and 4.) communicate and share success stories with a national audience.

Full Time, 16 month, paid Fellowship that will be housed at the North Bay Organizing Project in Santa Rosa
