New Economy Project is Hiring!

Community Organizer — Public Banking Campaign

New Economy Project seeks an energetic Community Organizer to help build a grassroots movement for economic democracy and racial and economic justice in NYC. The Community Organizer will play a key role in an emerging, broad-based campaign to create a public bank for NYC. Through a public bank, New York City can divest from Wall Street banks that harm low-income and immigrant neighborhoods and neighborhoods of color, fuel climate change, and perpetuate structural inequality, poverty, and segregation. The public bank can direct the public’s money to support truly affordable housing, living wage jobs, cooperative ownership, community-led development, and other critical neighborhood needs.
