The NY State Director is responsible for leading the flagship chapter of the Working Families Party, a political party of, by and for the multiracial working class. The State Director drives the strategy and vision for the development, growth, stability and power of the Working Families Party and Working Families Organization in New York State. In this role, the State Director recruits and manages a diverse and talented team of staff and consultants, oversees the legal and administrative functions of the Party’s ballot line and infrastructure, drives issue and electoral campaign activities, supports a robust and aggressive communications program, builds WFP as an organizing shop with strong member engagement and grassroots power, and raises funds for the Party’s program. The State Director leads an elected officer body of seven to ten leaders from the State Committee to endorse hundreds of WFP aligned candidates each year and build strong organizational alignment and internal democracy. Serving as the political and legislative strategist for the Working Families Party/Working Families Organization within the state, they work with the National Executive Director and NY senior staff, officers, members and affiliates to develop the state’s political strategy and oversee that strategy’s implementation in a complex, competitive, high-intensity political environment.
About Working Families Party
About the Working Families Party
The Working Families Party (WFP) is the progressive party for the multiracial working class, fighting for a nation that works for the many, not the few. We recruit, train, and support transformational candidates up and down the ballot — and run them to win.
We believe that no matter where we come from or what our color, most of us want the same things. We want to earn enough to thrive, not just survive, and leave a better future for our kids. We want healthy food and clean water, safe neighborhoods and a safe world. We want to be free.
The Working Families Party is regular people coming together across our differences to make a better future for us all. We’re a multiracial party that fights for workers over bosses and people over the powerful. We want an America which realizes the promise – unrealized in our history – of freedom and equality for all.
