Executive Director

Dear Community!

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!

The Audre Lorde Project (ALP) is seeking a full-time Executive Director to help guide the vision and mission of ALP. The Executive Director will build and maintain the political leadership and infrastructure of the organization, while centering organizing with and programming for LGBTSTGNC People of Color in New York City.

The ideal candidate will have a proven ability to lead and develop a diverse, fierce team. This person will be committed to the growth and fiscal well-being of an organization rooted in local, grassroots LGBTSTGNC people of color communities within NYC. This position is an opportunity to engage with NYC community organizations, leaders, the media, as well as individual and institutional funders to help bring about real community wellness and progressive social and economic justice. We are looking for a candidate who can bring joy and fun to this work, and who can hold it down, while keeping it real!
