D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice Coordinator
Teaching for Change (TFC) seeks to hire a full-time (exempt) coordinator for its D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice (DCAESJ) to support social justice teaching among educators in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
Teaching for Change is a national social justice focused education nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., that provides teachers and parents with the tools to create schools where students learn to read, write, and change the world. Founded 30 years ago, Teaching for Change is a national organization with dedicated place-based work in the D.C. metro area.
Launched in the fall of 2017, Teaching for Change’s DCAESJ engages teachers in working groups, teach-ins, workshops, courses, and collaborative actions. There is currently an early childhood and a middle/high school working group (each meets monthly). Key events coordinated by the DCAESJ include: D.C. Area Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action/Year of Purpose, Teach Central America Week, Teach the Beat (go-go), Indigenous Peoples’ Day Teach-in (with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian), and our annual collaboration with the International Filmfest DC.
Teaching for Change is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, arrest record or criminal convictions, political affiliation, sexual orientation or gender identity, disability, sex, or age.
