Storytelling Director

Director of Storytelling

Chicago in December can be unforgiving. But in the winter of 2015 when a few hundred people gathered in the windy city, the snow relented and it wasn’t nostril freezing times. Or, maybe it was the free chap stick we distributed at Lánzate::The Jump Off. Mijente was born to a group of Latinx and Chicanx people, radical in their vision and multiplicitous in their strategy, hailing from many parts of the continent. Scattered across place and time, but somehow, arrived. We asked ourselves: Was it time to build a new political vehicle for our people? What would truly make this time different? What does political home mean when so many of us are exiled, numb, disconnected or just trying to get to the next day? We set off, romantics at heart, because we knew how hard it would be, but pledged to try anyway. We set off, guided by experiences gained by the fire of fights past – fighting to end deportation, to decarcerate, for LGBTQ liberation, for Black liberation, for fair wages, para el buen vivir. What happened next? Best believe it is interesting. We can tell you more about it, if you’ll consider applying and helping us write and tell the rest of the story.

Starting salary is $60,000, negotiable commensurate with experience; benefits include vacation, personal time off and health and wellness package. This position is remote and requires moderate travel. Position open until filled.
