Michigan United is a statewide coalition of faith, labor, civil rights, business, and social service organizations working together for racial and economic justice through community organizing.

We put everyday people at the center of campaigns that build power to address the root causes of poverty and inequality. We also provide services to help develop the capacity of our members to lead.

Our major campaigns areas include immigrants rights and immigration reform, ending mass incarceration, universal family care and environmental justice.

Michigan United provides extensive training on organizing for change. We are a collaborative work environment where we invest in our team and win powerful campaigns. We provide generous paid time off to promote work/life balance, health benefits for those who qualify, and the opportunity to earn a paid sabbatical.

We value passion for justice and our issues, creativity, and initiative. Expect to work in a fast-paced environment and balance multiple priorities.

Women, people of color, and LGBTQ persons are strongly encouraged to apply.

Michigan United is leading the fight to defend the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare.  It’s not enough just to defend the status quo, so we’re also working to win universal affordable child care, elder care, and paid family leave.

The Health Care Organizers will work to recruit and train volunteer teams that lead campaigns to provide affordable care to all. We use direct action, earned media, and power of real people’s stories and leadership.

Prior experience in community or political organizing a plus.
