This dynamic, creative person will be responsible for leading a team to execute a strategic communications plan and managing and supporting a team to refine and amplify our worldview as well as advise our partners. Formed in 2018, Liberation in a Generation is a national movement support organization building the power of people of color to totally transform the economy—who controls it, how it works, and most importantly, for whom. We bring together advocates, community organizers, economists, and other proven and emerging leaders of color across the country to build a Liberation Economy, within one generation. Liberation in a Generation is incubating in PolicyLink. We aim to create political and economic change where people of color prosper.

It means building a Liberation Economy where all people of color have our basic needs met, are safe from harm, are valued, and belong.
