Fair Housing Mobility Advocate
Did you know that New York City and the New York metropolitan area are among the most residentially segregated places in the United States?
The Anti-Discrimination Center (ADC) is seeking to hire a dynamic and experienced advocate to assist us both in our anti- segregation work and in our fair housing work more generally.
This position pays $75,000 per year. There are four weeks paid vacation, and ADC pays 100 percent of health insurance premiums.
The three most important responsibilities are:
(1) conducting outreach to provide information on the potential benefits for families of living in a number of neighborhoods that have traditionally excluded African-Americans and Latinos (both in New York City and in the surrounding suburbs) and identifying families who are interested in exploring those housing options;
(2) making regular public presentations explaining how people with disabilities can use the Fair Housing Act and the New York City Human Rights Law to force their landlords (and prospective landlords) to remove barriers to accessibility; and
(3) effectively gathering information from people who claim to have been discriminated against.
Bachelor’s degree and at least 3-5 years of relevant experience.
The successful candidate will have excellent analytical, writing, and oral communication skills. He or she must be able without fail to exercise sound independent judgment in a variety of high- pressure situations, and will use utmost discretion in all matters.
You need to enjoy making public presentations in front of groups large and small, working alongside people of varied backgrounds, and cajoling fellow organizations to go beyond their existing ideological and programmatic comfort zones.
Experience in housing advocacy is a plus as is fluency in Spanish.
