Dear Friends

RoadMap Consulting, the National Organizers Alliance and DataCenter are 
conducting the Social Justice Salary and Benefits Survey.  The survey 
aims to collect information on compensation and personnel practices of 
organizations in the social, economic and environmental justice movements.

We hope to share the information with social justice leaders so we can 
learn from each others policies and practices.  Here is the link to the 


This survey is for local, state and national organizations that engage 
in organizing and movement building work and those supporting 
movement-building (such as organizations providing research, 
organizational development, communications, etc. to organizing groups).

The goal of the project is to document policies, explore the social 
justice values embedded in personnel practices, and share data from 
across the movement so groups can compare and learn from each other on 
creating compensation packages, and sustainable work practices.

The survey will be collected over the next month and results will be 
released in the Summer 2012. PLEASE FILL OUT THE SURVEY BY May 25th!!!

The first 100 organizations to fill out the survey will get a chance to 
win a gift:  We have several books to give away and you may win free 
consulting help from RoadMap on Human Resources topics.

The incentives include:

A copy of the survey results

The survey is confidential. Your organizational name or contact 
information will not be connected to responses. If you choose, you may 
give us your contact information to stay in touch with the project at 
the end of the survey.

You will need to share your budget, salary ranges, personnel policies 
and benefits costs. Once you have the information in hand, the 
questionnaire will take approximately 30 minutes. This information will 
be summarized and will be shared freely with social justice groups, and 
we hope will be very valuable to many groups around the country. THANK 
YOU for sharing your practices and we look forward to sharing the results.
