At Define American, we’re building an America that belongs to any person who calls this country home. With thousands of supporters across the country, we are building a country that embraces and welcomes all people, giving them an opportunity to practice citizenship regardless of the circumstances of their birth. For us, citizenship is not the possession of papers, or lack thereof; it is belonging to a community that loves, and having the opportunity to realize families’ dreams. And this citizenship cannot be defined by one’s bloodline and or the soil within our borders because it is created every day through the work, ideals, and values and participation of all who seek the American experience.
If you share that vision, we want you to join our movement.
We are the nation’s leading nonprofit immigration advocacy and culture change organization that fights injustice and anti-immigrant hate through the power of storytelling and narrative change. Through media consulting and creation, grassroots organizing, and event curation, Define American jumpstarts widespread and culture change around citizenship, race, and identity in a changing America.
We are a remote-working organization, with an office in Los Angeles. Our hiring process is an intentional one, which may involve a written assessment of skills when an in-person interview cannot be facilitated.
We are an equal opportunity employer and 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. We encourage applications from all individuals regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation, and evaluate all candidates based on merit.
