The American Federation of Teachers is seeking candidates for a position that will expand our work and advocacy on behalf of children in schools and their communities.
As a labor union, we want to develop strategies that will assure our members’ perspective and voice in children’s health policy issues at the local, state and federal level (with a focus on policies for schools). In addition, we want to expand our work at the local level with community groups to advocate for children’s health and well-being and to develop cooperative programs. This position will be in the AFT health and safety department in Washington DC. We are a small department of three people. This work is new to us. Our primary focus to date has been in occupational and environmental health. We welcome working with a new colleague on children’s issues and receiving new insights on our current initiatives. This is a permanent position (not tied to any grant funding). If anyone has any questions, they can contact me, Darryl Alexander at 202-393-5674. Interested applicants should email their resume to the AFT Human Resources Department : http://www.aft.org/about/jobs/
