Athena is seeking a Political Director to strategize, coordinate, and lead the coalition’s policy advocacy across issues, including: antitrust, worker rights, and surveillance and technology policy.
Athena is a groundbreaking nationwide coalition of 50+ organizations dedicated to defeating unchecked corporate power and advancing a democracy that represents us all. Our attention is focused squarely on Amazon, which exemplifies a cross-section of the harms and impacts of corporate power: an erosion of worker rights and protections, hollowing out of local economies, an expanding police state, and undermining of critical social and economic institutions and policy. We seek to build a stronger movement by building relationships, working in a principled way, and building collective capacity.
Our members are racial justice and worker organizations, think tanks and public policy advocacy organizations, and grassroots groups around the country -- and together we are building a popular movement to rein in corporate power and ensure that the rules of our economy are set by we the people, not by the biggest corporations in the world.
