Community Organizer-Miami

PACT

About the organization

PACT is a diverse and multi-faith coalition of 37 congregations and two universities fighting for racial and economic justice in Miami-Dade County. Our shared faith values call us to work collectively for systemic change, transforming Miami-Dade into a community that reflects the dignity of all people.

Since our founding in 1988, PACT has won a wide range of victories including: criminal justice system reforms to stop the growing criminalization of children, expansion of public transportation, affordable housing and job opportunities, and reforms to plug the school-to-prison pipeline by ensuring fair discipline policies in Miami-Dade public schools.

PACT is part of the DART network of organizations, one of the largest networks of faith-based community organizations in the country.

You will learn basic organizing principles and develop key organizing skills including: finding and developing leaders, issue research and strategy, power analysis, and one-to-one meetings. Ongoing professional development will continue through individualized coaching and mentoring, as well as local, regional, and national staff trainings and retreats.
