Young Farmers seeks a California Campaigns Director to build support and capacity for farmer-led change at the state level. We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about building power among communities that have been excluded from policy making and formal structures of power. Our ideal candidate is an experienced campaigner who understands the agricultural political landscape in California, can garner multi-stakeholder, multi-sector support for young farmer success, and can bring a strong racial equity analysis and thoughtful design process to the work of educating and motivating young farmers, particularly young farmers of color, to build power and win change.

We seek a California Organizer to work directly with young farmers, primarily young farmers of color, to organize and advocate for a brighter, more equitable future for agriculture in the state. We are looking for a candidate who has some experience as an agricultural producer and is driven to build power among communities that have been excluded from policy making and formal structures of power. Our ideal candidate is bilingual in Spanish/English and is located in the Central Valley or Southern California. This is a full-time position but we can be flexible if an active farmer is interested in part-time work.
