A Faith That Does Justice, Inc. (AFTDJ) is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. We aspire to be heard in our communities as the voice of the most vulnerable among us.
The Community Outreach Specialist is responsible for promoting AFTDJ to people who have been marginalized, institutions and social service organizations. The increasing reach of AFTDJ and its growing connections and engagement with the communities that it serves are the principal measures of success of the Community Outreach Specialist.
Our outreach to stakeholders and its related goals are:
People who have been marginalized - Build engagement with communities of marginalized people, provide events that are targeted to marginalized people, and increase their participation in our workshops, community meetings and live stream events.
Organizations that Serve People who have been marginalized - Build partnerships with organizations that serve people who have been marginalized, so we are better able to meet their needs and to develop opportunities for our followers to put their faith in action by directly serving the people who have been marginalized.
Followers - Strengthen our engagement with followers and increase participation at community meetings, workshops, and live stream events.
Divinity Schools and Church Leaders - Obtain contributions to The Weekly Word and speaking engagements for Fr. Peter.
The Community Outreach Specialist works closely with the AFTDJ Director of Community Outreach and other Community Outreach Specialists in carrying out her responsibilities. Although the opportunity is virtual, we are seeking people with some general knowledge and awareness of the Boston nonprofit and immigrant communities.
Overall, looking for someone to support day-to-day outreach work. Specific tasks may include phone calls, sending emails, following up on inquiries, researching organizations that A Faith That Does Justice might be interested in partnering with.

What We Do:
A Faith That Does Justice has four components:
Faith in Action, an initiative that emphasizes the works of mercy. We offer English as a Second Language to enable those in need of better language skills to function in the work place and society.
Community Meetings focus on social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. These have included presentations on immigration, housing and homelessness, and racism.
Monthly Workshops that bring English speaking and non-English speaking people together to realize that committed faith ought to be lived in action on behalf of justice for all.
Communications, email and social media posting on social justice and faith topics to educate our readers and to remind and inform readers about important social justice issues such as racism and immigration.
Who We Are: We are a volunteer-run program, helping people from different faith traditions walk in solidarity with those less fortunate. Volunteering with A Faith that Does Justice allows you to put your faith into action and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. Who We Seek: As a fully volunteer organization, we rely on the talents, skills and dedication of volunteers to carry out our mission.
