RoadMap Consulting, the National Organizers Alliance and DataCenter are

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 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.
