With every election cycle and issue campaign, we are reminded of the critical role that community organizers play in supporting the civic participation of all Americans. In this episode, you'll learn from new research on the working conditions of community organizers in social justice nonprofits. You’ll hear how organizers, executive directors, and funders view the issue. You’ll get recommendations for change, and next steps the All Due Respect is pursuing to ensure that all due respect is given to organizers!
We speak with Kinzie Mabon and Kevin Simowitz from All Due Respect, an exciting project that seeks to set new labor standards and ensure fair wages for community organizers.
This is Season Three, Episode Eight. In this episode, we explore Talent-Investing Principle #3: “Address the Problem, Not Just the Symptoms.” This principle is all about ending the deficit of investment in the nonprofit workforce, not just tackling the symptoms of the deficit, such as employee burnout and turnover. To learn about the Eight Guiding Principles of Talent-Investing, listen to Episode One of this season.
