About Jane Addams Senior Caucus
Jane Addams Senior Caucus (JASC) is a multiracial, grassroots organization led by concerned seniors in the Chicago metropolitan area. We cross neighborhood, racial, religious and socioeconomic lines to find common ground upon which to act on our values. Through leadership development, organizing and popular education, we use the power of our collective voice to work for economic, social and racial justice for all seniors and our communities. JASC is one of the only grassroots senior-led organizations in the country and over the past forty-four years, JASC’s organizing has won groundbreaking victories to allow seniors to age with dignity.
The members and staff of JASC are deeply committed to the work we do, and are so excited to be growing our team with this role. The organization has been in existence since the 1970’s, but has grown tremendously in the last few years. We are looking for someone to join our staff at this important moment and help take us to the next level.
