Director of SEARAC's California Office
The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) is seeking a highly skilled individual with a strong background in community engagement, non-profit management, and advocacy to join a dedicated team of passionate professionals working on social justice issues impacting Southeast Asian American (SEAA) communities.
The California Director oversees SEARAC's comprehensive California strategy to amplify SEARAC's national voice. The ideal candidate will have experience managing grant-funded projects, building and working in coalitions, advocating with policy makers, providing training and technical assistance to community-based partners, as well as deep familiarity with the SEAA community in California. The California Director manages a small team, and serves as a key member of SEARAC's policy and management team. This full-time position is based in Sacramento, CA, and reports to the Executive Director.
California is home to almost one million Southeast Asian Americans (SEAAs) who trace their heritage to Cambodia, Laos, or Vietnam, comprising the nation's largest SEAA community. The California Director works within coalitions such as the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network and the California Immigrant Policy Center to identify and advocate for policies to support SEAA communities, and works to build the capacity of local community-based organizations to advocate for their community's needs and demands at the California-state level. The California Director will oversee SEARAC's health equity advocacy and boys & men of color (BMOC) work, provide training and technical assistance to community-based partners, and build strategic relationships with policymakers, local partners, and philanthropy.
