>international campaigns to end sweatshop abuses.  CLR has been called the
>"grassroots mobilizing department" of the US anti-sweatshop movement.
>Coordinating with communities across the country as well as other national
>and international labor rights groups, CLR attacks the root causes of
>poverty, oppression, and economic disparity. We prioritize campaigns which
>have the goal of worker empowerment through union recognition and
>collectively bargained contracts, and we build campaign strategies in
>collaboration with the workers whose livelihood and lives are at stake.  CLR
>promotes a broad understanding of sweatshops by locating them within the
>current structure of neo-colonialism (corporate-centered globalization) and
>related systems of oppression, and we promote resistance to these systems in
>local communities.

>~ Work with staff to develop and coordinate outreach and education programs.

>~ Facilitate CLR's administrative and financial relationship with the
>Alliance for Global Justice (AGJ).
>CLR is a member project of the AGJ.
>We are seeking a Coordinator committed to the mission of the organization
>and to a collaborative work style.  The Coordinator should have experience
>in leading an organization through changing political, economic, and social
>environments; strong public speaking and organizational, financial
>management and personnel coordination skills; and an understanding of or
>experience in labor organizing and the anti-sweatshop movement.  Strong
>preference for the ability to speak Spanish.
>CLR is an equal opportunity employer - women, people of color, and LGBTQ are
>strongly encouraged to apply.  Salary for the National Coordinator will be
