State Policy Community Organizer (July 2017)

The Land Stewardship Project is seeking to hire an experienced community organizer to help advance our work for stewardship of the land and a just farm and food system. The position will focus on mobilizing farmers, rural residents and others to build power and mount public pressure for stewardship and justice in Minnesota’s farm and food system through winning state policies that rein in corporate concentration in agriculture, and that support a sustainable, family farm-based food and agriculture system. This is a full-time, salaried position. LSP will accept applications until the position is filled. A full job description is available here.
