Tenant Organizer (Atlanta, GA)
ACORN International is looking for a motivated individual interested in being a community organizer for housing justice. This position will work to lay the foundation for the ACORN Tenants Union in Atlanta, GA. This role will include COVID-safe, face-to-face outreach and door-knocking, online outreach, and following up with people who reach out to the organization. In addition to membership recruitment, this position will include organizing virtual meetings, organizing social distance actions/protests, communications/public relations, developing campaigns, cultivating new community leaders, phone outreach, and most of all, listening to the people in the communities we organize in.
