About the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center
The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center works to create a better world through art, dialogue, and action by culturally grounding our Chicano/Latino/Mexican-American communities, building bridges across social, political, economic, gender, sexual, religious, linguistic, and varying physical divides and increasing access to artistic expression and education.
The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center seeks an energetic community arts/education leader to coordinate programs surrounding the opening of the Museo del Westside’s new home at the Rinconcito de Esperanza. Reporting to the Esperanza’s Executive Director, this role has primary responsibility for executing an existing slate of public events and community initiatives that will build up to and celebrate the Museo’s physical opening in May 2023. These activities will likely include pláticas, community gatherings and workshops, musical performances, etc., as well as community initiatives such as neighborhood surveys and block-walking.
Applicants should have a strong connection to the Westside and/or Mexican American history and culture. They should be enthusiastic about contributing to Esperanza’s efforts to preserve the Westside’s historic character, combat harmful internalized narratives, and create a better future for the neighborhood through community building, advocacy, and housing justice.
