Essie Justice Group: Community Organizer and Executive/Administrative Assistant

Essie Justice Group (Essie) was founded in May of 2014 with a mission to harness the collective power of women with incarcerated loved ones to end mass incarceration’s harm to women.

We are building a large, bold policy advocacy network of predominantly Black and Latina women who have incarcerated loved ones across California in 2017. Today we live in an age of mass control. Patriarchy, racism, and punitive criminal justice policies have been devastating for women’s health, resources, and civic engagement, particularly for low-income women, women of color, and queer and trans women whose loved ones are caged and criminalized. 2.3 million people are incarcerated. 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 2 Black women has a family member in prison. In partnership with our formerly and currently incarcerated loved ones, we root ourselves in a gender analysis and a race justice analysis – working in solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives, the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, and a variety of coalitions aimed at bringing about a more compassionate future free of race and gender violence.

Central to how we do our work is the belief that those directly impacted by oppressive systems must lead our liberation movements. We dedicate ourselves to a 9-week Healing to Advocacy model, developed by Essie Justice Group in order to engage women as change agents. The Essie sisterhood grows through our nominations process, in which incarcerated women and incarcerated men nominate women they love to our program. Community members also nominate women and women self-nominate through our website. When women graduate from the 9-week program, they are invited into the “Essie sisterhood,” which serves as our mobilizable base. In 2017, we are building a strong infrastructure of staff and organizational leaders to grow and transform our base into an advocacy network that will serve as the statewide organizing apparatus through which we bring about decriminalization, decarceration, and an end to state-sponsored violence against women and communities of color. So far, we have run our Healing to Advocacy 9-week model five times by forming cohorts of 15 women each in two cities in the Bay Area. Approximately 50 women with incarcerated loved ones in the California Bay Area have graduated as Essie Sisters and many are now leaders within our organization as Essie Fellows. In 2017, women graduates (known as “Essie sisters”) will facilitate and run up to ten new cohorts across California in 2017.  

Before applying, please read more about Essie Justice Group online. We highly encourage you to learn as much as possible about us in order to put your best and truest self forward in our community-driven hiring process. For more information about our program, here's a moving video created by our membership and recent articles in Essence and Huffington Post.

Please Note: Women with incarcerated loved ones, formerly incarcerated people, and those with direct experience with the criminal justice system are strongly encouraged to apply.
