OPAWL is a grassroots membership-based community that organizes for social justice and elevates the voices, visibility, and progressive leadership of Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and nonbinary people in Ohio. By co-creating an organized and intersectional feminist-led community, we are building collective power. Our primary strategies for building power are through community building, art and storytelling, political education, and organizing campaigns.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in policy-related work at the statehouse level, an understanding of education policy and issues, and an interest in cross-racial and multigenerational solidarity and coalition building.
