The ideal candidate will be committed to racial equity and progressive values while being passionate about rural community members’ access to voting and elections, local food, and family farmers. This person should have a knowledge base of both democracy and the food and agriculture policy and the partnership landscape and, most importantly, have significant experience working in rural areas. This individual should be comfortable interacting with legislators, partners and SiX staff virtually.
