Far too many Americans are trapped in a vicious cycle of multi-generational poverty. Despite hundreds of billions in charitable giving annually, and as much as $1 trillion every year in anti-poverty government programs, the poverty rate in the United States has not declined significantly since the 1960s. It’s time for a different approach to poverty—one that sees the very people working to improve their lives as the solution.
At Stand Together, we are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty. That’s why we invest in people with firsthand knowledge of their community’s problems; who are breaking the barriers people confront in society and inside themselves. Over the last three and a half years, our community invested in more than 150 local organizations that help people overcome poverty and addiction.
We’re seeking a strategic, creative, and results-oriented individual to join the Stand Together Campaign Team in support of our anti-poverty efforts, where you’ll be responsible for developing campaigns that capture the imagination of key audiences, and inspire them to join our efforts to break the cycle of poverty and help people realize their potential.
