Request For Proposal: Black Worker Center Project Manager - East Multnomah County

The Rosewood Initiative, Beyond Black, Imagine Black and Black Community of Portland has
formed a community development collective with the goal of securing physical space to create a Black Workers Center in East Multnomah County. This project manager will lead our organizations through the current economic justice landscape, feasibility, and strategic approach. The function of this Project Manager role is to lead the collective leadership team in start-up, discovery, and partnership structure.


A Black Workers Center would be essential in promoting a new approach to Black worker activism and building civic power. To the best of our knowledge, this center will be the first Black-led civic workers center in East Multnomah County. This center will be a community-led space that creates and maintains racial and economic justice through building community power and transforming working conditions for Black workers. The center will operate through a combination of the following strategies: leadership development, policy advocacy, strategic communications, coalitional work, and economic development (worker-owned alternatives, and entrepreneurship).

DEADLINE: April 30th at 2 PM
