Census 2020 Coalition Project Organizer

Date Posted: August 28, 2019

Employer: Advocates for Children of New Jersey

Location/Hours: Newark, NJ; Full Time, temporary for one year

Job Description: ACNJ is seeking a full-time Project Organizer to lead a one-year special project for our organization. The project seeks to build a strong coalition across New Jersey (Census 2020 NJ Coalition) to ensure a complete count of underrepresented communities in the 2020 Census, with a special focus on children under age 5.

The 2020 Census will seek to count nearly 400 million people, requiring cooperation among federal, state, and local governments, community-based organizations, private sector and philanthropy. Census data is used to apportion congressional representation and design congressional, state and local legislative districts. Census data shapes the distribution of $700 billion in annual federal allocations to states and localities, including funding for Head Start programs, public assistance, Medicaid, school lunch programs, Section 8 housing, and critical infrastructure such as public transit, hospitals, libraries and schools. In New Jersey, the annual distribution of $22.7 billion for federal programs depends on data derived from the census. If our residents go uncounted, it will inhibit both equal access to resources and equal political representation for New Jerseyans. New Jersey is an extremely diverse state, with high numbers of hard-to-count communities such as: racial and ethnic minorities, children, urban and rural low-income households, limited-English-proficient immigrants, mixed-status families, homeless people, and LGBTQ communities.

In partnership with other members of the Census 2020 NJ Coalition, a statewide coalition of nonprofits with the goal of an accurate 2020 Census count, ACNJ plans to address this challenge through coordinated outreach in hard-to-count communities. With its existing network of partners at the municipal and local levels, ACNJ will engage hundreds of community-based and nonprofit organizations to participate in Census outreach to their members and communities.

The Project Organizer will be the point person for the outreach. The job includes regular evening work and some weekend work.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 4-year degree required
  • To be considered for employment, candidate must possess a valid Driver’s License, current automobile insurance, and consistent and reliable transportation.  

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Fluency in Spanish strongly preferred, in both oral and written communication  

Essential Functions (to include, but not limited to):

  • Identify organizations who should be part of local Complete Count Committees (CCCs) in specific hard-to-count communities across the state, build relationships with those organizations, and engage municipal leaders to ensure participation;
  • Educate local community organizations, nonprofits, early childhood care providers, municipal governments, health care organizations and other groups through in-person presentations and distribution of materials;
