About AFR Education Fund
AFR Education Fund has been called “the leading voice for Wall Street accountability” in Washington. Help us continue and grow this important work.
Formed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, our coalition led the ‘outside’ campaign to strengthen and win passage of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform bill, including the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Since then, we have fought Wall Street capture, improved countless rules and regulations, reigned in abuses by predatory lenders, and put big new ideas on the table to make finance work for most people, not against us.
AFREF’s staff effectively advances the agenda of a diverse and powerful coalition of more than 200 consumer, civil rights, labor, community-based, and other organizations, along with academics and other experts, working together to move forward this fundamentally important set of levers for progress towards economic and racial justice.
The Operations Associate will support the operations of AFR Ed Fund and AFR in the areas of Accounting, Development, Human Resources, and People and Culture, as well as provide support to the COO and the Executive Director with administration, scheduling, and special projects.
The ideal candidate will be good at multitasking, detail-oriented, self-driven, and creative. They will have an exceptional ability to set up and maintain solid systems and be attuned to interacting with a variety of audiences (staff, board members, partners, vendors, etc.). The successful candidate will appreciate and enjoy the fast-paced nature of our work, be motivated by AFREF’s mission, and have a strong commitment to economic and racial justice.
