Juntos Is Hiring A Community Organizer

Filed under: Latest News |

If you are watching the news in Philadelphia, then you know that immigrant families have continued to be under attack. At the border and in our cities, our communities are facing violence — the physical violence of locking up our people in cages, denying them their freedom, and the political violence of Trump’s anti-immigrant policies and threats of massive deportations.

There has never been a more important time to organize and build leadership in our communities. In this critical moment, Juntos is looking for committed individuals to join us in fighting for our rights.
