SCOPE builds grassroots power to eliminate structural barriers to social and economic opportunity for low-income communities of color. As a membership-based organization, SCOPE fills a critical niche in the movement for social change—organizing marginalized communities of color and poor and working-class residents to ensure that they have an equal voice in the decision making process and the necessary pathways to realize opportunities for advancement.
Established in 1993 in response to the 1992 civil unrest in South Los Angeles, SCOPE was founded with the intent to tell and transform the untold story of disinvestment and neglect that preceded the lingering images of violence and destruction in the media. Since its inception, SCOPE has successfully employed community organizing, leadership development, strategic research, and alliance building to win policies and programs that create employment and training opportunities for marginalized workers, prioritize low-income communities for public investment, and support a healthy, thriving local community.
SCOPE’s campaign strategies are grounded in the interests and perspectives of South Los Angeles residents, who are largely Latinx, African American and immigrant, and live on the frontlines of pollution and poverty. SCOPE currently seeks a Strategic Communications Associate to help lead strategic communications on issues of workforce development, and economic and environmental justice in South Los Angeles. This position presents an opportunity to develop communications strategies that reframe policy debates, engage directly affected communities, advance our campaign goals, and help us achieve bigger wins.
