Trade Justice Education Fund Openings

Seeking Organizers for Dynamic Campaigns on Global Vaccine Equity, Climate Justice and Worker Rights — Plus Candidates for Social Media, Online Giving and Administrative Positions

The Trade Justice Education Fund (TJEF) is a new nonprofit that sponsors public education programs designed to expand awareness about the worker rights, environment and climate,  and public health implications of U.S. trade policy. 

TJEF’s mission includes increasing public understanding of just, sustainable trade policy alternatives, as opposed to the business-as-usual neoliberalism and racist nationalism frames that are often presented as the scope of the trade policy debate. 

With deep roots in the labor, environmental, family farm, faith and consumer movements, TJEF’s officers and directors together have decades of leadership experience in trade issue education. 

Current TJEF programs include campaigns on global COVID-19 vaccine equity, climate justice, gig economy worker protections and more.
