CPRD seeks to hire a Director of Advocacy and Engagement to lead the organization’s arts-inwellbeing pillar of work. CPRD emerged out of the Freedom and Black Arts Movements – two
distinctive and deeply interwoven manifestations of the African American struggle for justice
and self-determination. Working along this continuum, the organization is building upon its
history of civic engagement, wellness and wellbeing with a sharper focus on job training,
mental and physical fitness programs, and advocacy for policymaking. The Director of
Advocacy and Engagement is particularly responsible for leading the strategic development
and management of the newly established Arts Alliance for Health Equity, an initiative launched
in partnership between CPRD and Eugene S. Farley, Jr. Health Policy Center.
