OTHER WORLDS IS HIRING: ANOTHER HAITI IS POSSIBLE COORDINATOR

JOB ANNOUNCEMENT: ANOTHER HAITI IS POSSIBLE COORDINATOR

The Another Haiti Is Possible Coordinator’s primary work will be to co-plan and coordinate – following the lead of Haitian allies - an international campaign to protect land rights against massive grabs being promulgated by foreign investors, Haitian elite, and Haitian government (with strong backing of the US, World Bank, and IDB). The campaign will both fortify Haitians’ efforts and add global muscle. The coordinator’s work will guide popular and public education, strategy development, media work, movement support, network-building, coordination of international (mainly US-based) advocacy, and organizing. It will also involve a political campaign against one or two targets, be it/they a corporation, US government, or IFI. Because Other Worlds is so small, a focus will be on finding key players who can carry various pieces of the work.ongly encouraged to apply.
