Senior Tenant Organizer
The Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD) - a member-organization of 95 neighborhood-based affordable housing groups and community organizations - seeks a Senior Tenant Organizer for an innovative campaign to save at-risk affordable housing and assist tenants facing harassment. The campaign will build pressure to win the transfer of strategically targeted distressed and overleveraged apartments out of the hands of problem landlords and banks and into the hands of community-minded buyers.
The Senior Tenant Organizer will:
•Work with ANHD staff and ANHD member-groups to research strategic opportunities to win the transfer of distressed and overleveraged buildings to a community-minded buyer through a “First Look” agreement negotiated with local banks
•Work with the tenant organizing staff of neighborhood community groups, assisting local groups to outreach to tenants in the targeted buildings and develop sophisticated organizing strategies to improve conditions for tenants and gain leverage for successful long-term preservation outcomes.
•Work with the tenants and City to take at-risk buildings permanently out of the cycle of destructive speculative investment and help arrange purchases by community-minded owners who will preserve the affordable housing.
•Bring activist groups from across NYC together in a campaign to increase City support for policies to preserve at-risk affordable housing.
•A minimum of four years of professional experience in tenant or community organizing related to affordable housing, including strategic issue-based campaigns.
•Commitment to New York City’s neighborhoods and respect for community organizing and grassroots organizations.
•Must be very self-directed, creative and highly productive.
•Bi-lingual (English/Spanish); program fundraising experience; knowledge of NYC housing issues preferred.
