---------- Forwarded message ----------
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
...I'm in the process of transitioning out of my role as E.D. of BWA
this year. I'm emailing you to ask for your help in circulating the job
posting. We're focusing on Boston, but are trying to cast as wide a net
as possible. You're receiving this email because I think you have
relevant networks beyond my own, and I value your opinion/politics etc.
and would appreciate any help during our search! For a few of you, I'm
hoping you'd applying yourself.
The [announcement and link to a full] description is pasted below, and
thanks in advance for sharing this with your circles or any relevant
lists. Please contact me with any thoughts, questions or suggestions
around this process. Any help is very appreciated!

Boston Workers Alliance: Executive Director Hiring Search
We are conducting the search to find the next Executive Director of The
Boston Workers Alliance, and invite you to help us spread the word about
this opportunity as widely as possible.
Established in 2005 and currently in growth mode, The Boston Workers
Alliance (BWA) is a grassroots member-led organization of under- and
unemployed workers, united to end the crisis of joblessness in Boston’s
urban communities of color. Through cooperation, political awareness,
organizing and the development of its members as social change agents,
BWA fervently challenges the political and economic structures that
oppose full civic participation and the potential to live well. BWA has
established itself as a dynamic member-driven initiative against racism,
CORI system (Criminal Order Record Information) discrimination and the
crisis of joblessness in Boston's communities of color. BWA drives
economic development projects and grassroots campaigns to win job
opportunities for urban workers with barriers to employment.
After seven successful years as Executive Director and Founder of the
Boston Workers Alliance, Aaron Tanaka will officially step down after a
successor is selected. This is an exciting opportunity for a
progressive, experienced leader with a heart for social and economic
justice, organizing and community empowerment to build on the foundation
that Aaron has laid and to affect individual and system change.
Would you please take a few minutes to circulate information on this
position to those throughout your networks who should be made aware of
this opportunity? For the complete position profile and application
guidelines, please visit http://www.tsne.org/jobs/bwa
Thank you so much for your assistance in getting the word out. If you
know of someone whom I should contact directly, please don’t hesitate to
let me know. Your involvement in outreach can have a big impact in this
