Illinois Black Advocacy Initiative Founding Director Search Launched

Building on the recommendations elevated in our two reports Illinois Will Win When Its Black Residents Win: We Must Support and Sustain a Black Liberation Agenda Now and Illinois Black Advocacy: A Landscape Analysis, we are excited to share that our next step in this effort will be to hire a Founding Executive Director to steer the Illinois Black Advocacy Initiative.

The Founding Executive Director will work to determine the best structure for a contemporary intersectional advocacy organization dedicated to racial equity, social justice, and systemic and structural change for the political, social, and economic empowerment of Black people and communities in Illinois. Kittleman & Associates will lead the search for this visionary and dedicated leader.
