Do you want to ensure that transportation decisions in the District of Columbia help all people get to work and other destinations quickly, safely, sustainably, and equitably? Do you want to see transportation policies address and rectify historic disparities? Do you like building relationships with leaders in a wide range of communities?

If so, you might be our next Transportation Equity Organizer. Or maybe it’s someone you know!

Greater Greater Washington is looking to hire a full-time team member to connect with community members and leaders from across DC and the Washington region to advance sustainable transportation solutions.

I’m really excited to be able to post this position, because transportation policies have far-reaching impacts and yet historically have severely disadvantaged some groups of people in our city and region over others. Meanwhile, there are ways we can help people from all areas, all incomes and colors and backgrounds, get where they need to go. Figuring out the details, and winning support for them, will require all communities working together.

We now have funding coming in to expand our work in this area, and we’re looking for someone who can help connect with and organize people around it. Please read the detailed job description, consider applying, and/or send this to other people who might be a great fit. Thank you!
