The FICPFM network is seeking a driven, inspired and energetic National Organizer to help launch an inaugural campaign designed to grow and strengthen the network by: (1) consolidating and interconnecting political power through civic engagement activities; (2) organize and mobilize network organizations for policy change and (3) shift American culture towards inclusive language regarding people and families with criminal records.
