The Counselor Network Coordinator is a 20 hour a week position that supports SFADC’s Counselor Network. This peer-to-peer education network is led by frontline tenant counselors on staff or volunteering at dozens of tenant rights clinics around the city.  This position coordinates trainings for the network with a focus on building relationships and fostering collaboration between a diverse network of tenant rights counselors and legal service providers in San Francisco. The coordinator also oversees direct tenant education efforts, including the development and distribution of multilingual educational materials. While experience as a tenant rights counselor is a plus, it is not necessary for the position, which is primarily offering logistical and infrastructural support to the committee. The Counselor Network Coordinator is supervised by the lead coalition staffer and works closely with staff to connect the work of the Counselor Network to the broader education, organizing, and policy efforts of SFADC.

  • Lead the development and distribution of tenant education materials: Logistically support in the development of direct tenant education materials as needed.  Coordinate translation, design, and distribution of digital and print materials including social media, flyers, ads on public transit, billboards, and radio spots. Coordinate periodic direct tenant education workshops led by multiple SFADC member organizations.
  • Connect committee work to the larger coalition: Track major trends and issues identified by frontline tenant rights counselors and work with the lead coalition staffer to ensure that these insights help guide the broader political work of the coalition.

About the Coalition: Founded in 2013, SFADC is a citywide coalition of tenant organizations which has organized against evictions and rent increases in our city.  We believe that all tenants have a right to safe, secure and affordable places to live and support strong public policies that protect these rights. Together we have won campaigns to strengthen the city’s rent ordinance and other reforms preventing thousands of evictions.   We also believe that real estate speculation destabilizes neighborhoods, communities and economies and we support regulation and controls on such speculation. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we have fought for comprehensive tenant protections that do more than defer evictions and displacement for vulnerable communities.
