Gamaliel’s organizing work draws on struggles for justice by people of faith spanning many nations, creeds, and cultures.  Our work draws on the sacred writings of our multiple faith  traditions—Christian teachings from the Bible, the Torah, Catholic social teaching—as well as the founding principles of American democracy, the U.S. civil rights movement, and many other sources.  Above all, our work begins and ends in an expression of the personal faith and values of our members.

The communications specialist position has a competitive salary commensurate with experience.  Gamaliel is an equal opportunity employer.  Gamaliel is accepting resumes from June 5, 2020, until the position is filled.  Submit a cover letter and resume with references at: https://gamaliel.org/communications-specialist-application-form/.
