Our budget and organizing capacity have grown to $2.5M annually, and we currently have over 20 employees. We anticipate further growth in 2021 and desire a Finance Director to be comfortable creating systems that can scale as our movement does.

Our chapters in Lehigh, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Cumberland, Dauphin, York, Berks, and Philadelphia counties build grassroots leadership, fight on our issues, and win elections.
