The National Bail Out Operations Coordinator will work primarily with the Project Director to support the basic functions of the collective. The major responsibilities will be to manage our general inbox, plan and execute logistics for internal and external gatherings, support with partner and grantee requests for funding, technical assistance and other needs through multi-partner coordination that is aligned with NBO’s mission and values. A major part of this work is to support the large-scale operations of Black Mama’s Bail Out, our tactical bail out action that allows for the release of Black mama’s and caregivers from cages before Mother’s Day- which includes but is not limited to, supporting the creation of an infrastructure that allows multi-level engagement of over 20 groups across the country; which includes, but not limited to, scheduling calls, compiling grant applications, responding to rapid requests for support and planning a debrief.
The National Bail Out Report Researcher will work with the research team of the National Bail Out collective to help conduct research for our National Bail Out report. We are looking for a quantitative researcher and a qualitative researcher. If you have skills in both quantitative and qualitative research and are interested in conducting both types of research for this project please note that in your application. You may also apply for one position, and not both.
The report will reflect the work that we have done including: bailing out hundreds of people, identifying the needs of those we bailed out and creating support systems to hold them. This report is an opportunity for us to tell the story of bail from the perspective of those it harms. The Report Researcher will play a leading role in multi-sourced quantitative and qualitative data analysis and compilation to be written in a comprehensive and accessible way.
