Illinois Food Justice Alliance Director

Illinois Food Justice Alliance (IFJA) mission is to build our collective power to create food and farm systems that are healthy for our families, accessible and affordable for all communities, and fair to the hard-working people who grow, distribute, prepare, and serve our food — while protecting the air, water, and land we all depend on.

The Illinois Food Justice Alliance Director will support the coalition’s priorities including coalition growth and development as well as policy development, advocacy and implementation by working in coordination with coalition members, local communities, organizations, as well as staff at City of Chicago Departments and Agencies and State of Illinois Departments and Agencies. The IFJA Director will serve as a key coordinating and facilitative resource to members and participants in IFJA’s existing and emerging networks and partnerships. The position will provide coordination support for a statewide effort to pass Good Food Purchasing Policy. IFJA is looking for a person with at least 3 years of experience facilitating, leading and developing networks and collaborations with deep experience, comfort and sensitivity for working in and partnering with diverse communities.
