The Center for Urban and Racial Equity’s self-described mission is to partner with people and organizations to advance equity through policy, systems, institutional, community, and societal change. Want to be a part of that mission? Well you can be: The organization is seeking an editor to prepare reports, toolkits, and other content for publication.
The center wants someone with interest and experience producing national reports on progressive issues, preferably focused on equity, inclusion, civil rights, and social justice. The role involves turning the dry, academic prose of existing reports into something that pops and communicates the urgent need for action.
This will be a freelance contractor/consultant relationship, but one the organization hopes will be long-term. The initial project starts this month, with a first draft due by January 4th. CORE estimates the commitment will take 30 – 35 hours and will pay $28 per hour.
To apply, submit a cover letter, resume/CV, and two writing or editing samples (such as reports, policy or issue briefs, literature reviews, or journal articles) to Elise Goldstein at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Editor” in the subject line, by Wednesday, December 19th. People of color and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
