    I have been working at DART Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working at two different DART affiliates has been a blessing to me. I get to live out my values each and every day and have built really meaningful relationships with community members as well as other organizers across the country. I have been a part of getting real results and see the world improving around me. I am really honored to be involved in this work.

    Cons

    Some campaigns take years to win so you'll want to go in knowing that you're going to take some hard hits along the way but that it's worth it.

    I worked at DART Center full-time for less than a year

    Competitive salary for an organizing job, lots of training, coalition for black organizers

    Cons

    Still capitalistic in work culture and expectations, they say justice is the bottom line, but really it’s money and justice is the path, CEO does not respond well to criticism and has been known to say racially offensive things, the JUST started a sexual harassment policy in 2019 after being around for almost 20 years, Bottom line in my class only 3 organizers are left out of 9.
