Highlights from ALP
We are re-opening the search process for the Executive Director position. During our search over last fall & winter we had the opportunity to meet and learn about really amazing folks out there doing great work. It helped us as an organization to gain clarity on what ALP is seeking to embark on during this next phase of our journey. ALP’s next Executive Director is someone that has strong grassroots organizing skills, is familiar with the NYC political landscape, and can hold and build ALP”s work to continue building economic, gender and racial justice within this political moment to ensure our livelihood and to build political power rooted in transformation. Please spread the word to folks who you think would be a great ED for ALP!
