About Avaaz

Avaaz is an international campaigning and advocacy organization that provides its global membership of almost 70 million people with opportunities to make our world a better place.

We’re one of the world’s largest online global campaigning movements, with people from every corner in the world taking action to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want. This includes protecting human rights worldwide, supporting indigenous struggles, saving our planet from climate change and other threats, and fighting to stop disinformation and other cyber threats from undermining our democracies. 

Our model enables people to channel their voices into a powerful collective force at tipping point moments to impact the pressing global challenges of our time, from climate and ecological collapse to human rights abuses and the dismantling of democracy. 

Avaaz has been campaigning for Palestinian rights for over a decade. This year, Avaaz is launching an ambitious project to support the Palestinian people in their fight for equity and self-determination rooted in freedom, dignity, and justice.  Avaaz is funded through small donations from individual Avaaz members, no big money from governments or corporations. This keeps us independent and allows us to keep a laser focus on doing what the world needs.

Position Overview

The Palestinian people are facing one of the most painful chapters in its history, with over 30,000 people killed in Gaza, close to 10,000 imprisoned, and the expansion of violence in the West Bank. At this moment, the struggle for Palestinian rights is more urgent and important than ever, and this struggle must be led by Palestinian voices. This is why Avaaz is building a team that can help coordinate and mobilize strategic, people-led local and global action that can help achieve the change needed. 

At the core of this project will be an on-the-ground organizer who will work with and organize various elements of Palestinian society in support of a ceasefire in Gaza, and freedom for the Palestinian people. The Organizer position will help develop and pursue mobilization efforts and run campaigns and projects focused on ending the bloodshed in Gaza and in pursuit of Palestinian rights. This position will report to Avaaz’s Senior Campaign Director, a leading international figure in the campaign movement for Palestinian rights.


As the Lead Community Organizer you will help create sustainable structures to manage long-term organizing, campaigns and advocacy efforts. This will include working with key communities using your exceptional communication skills to establish trust and build rapport. You’ll also develop and lead training and meetings to mobilize agency in pursuit of Palestinian rights, and participation in public actions. 



This is a  dynamic evolving role of Lead Community Organizer, where you'll have the opportunity to collaborate closely with diverse communities, cultivate trust to ignite action for Palestinian rights. You will also help manage the local campaigning team and advocacy efforts.

  • Exceptional communication skills which motivate people into action
  • A talent for creativity, strategic thinking, and crafting impactful campaigns
  • Extensive knowledge of the political and social landscape in Palestine, particularly around youth

  • A proven ability of building online and offline communities
  • An eagerness to explore new technologies to enhance campaign effectiveness and harness the full power of our platforms
  • Experience orchestrating successful large-scale actions that deliver real impact
  • Fluency in English and Arabic is a requirement.
