New Sanctuary Empowerment Center/ El Centro seeks a data analyst to assist in data collection and measuring organizational impact. We seek a highly motivated and social justice committed individual to help us use facts, metrics and data analytics to guide strategic decision-making aligned with our initiatives, campaigns and mission. The data analyst will help in creating a culture of critical thinking and curiosity as institutional values.
At El Centro we seek to empower our communities (mostly recent asylum seekers but also long-term migrants) by aiding them in developing the confidence, skills, and relationships necessary to thrive as they adjust to their new lives in the United States. Inspired by the community organizing efforts of the United Farm Workers, from whom we have adapted our logo, we, too, embrace the solidarity spirit of community care and community organizing.
We are a:
- Community Center (manage a busy hotline, legal consultations, make referrals, operate a crisis management fund, provide membership ids.)
- Learning Center (basic English language instruction, Know Your Rights workshops, lecture series)
- Worker Center (help in filing wage claim forms to fight wage theft, worker campaigns to prevent worker injury)
Formerly an anti-deportation activist organization founded in 2017 known as New Sanctuary Network Tulsa, we have expanded our operation and reach, filing with the state of Oklahoma to become a 501c(3) in summer 2021. Our new name is New Sanctuary Empowerment Center or more commonly known as El Centro (www.ElCentroOK.org).
While the focus is on offering programs and services to assist immigrants principally from Latin America, all people regardless of nation of origin and legal status are welcome to join, become members and participate in programming at El Centro. Beyond our work as a service provider, we seek to create space for learning and community organizing where community members bring solutions, ideas, plans and strategies to tackle personal, work-related and community obstacles. The key to our success is in cultivating social responsibility and empowerment.
We offer pro-bono legal consultations through a partnership with the Tulsa Immigrant Resource Center at University of Tulsa, as well as a range of workshops and learning opportunities including adult literacy, digital literacy classes, Know-Your-Rights, campaigns to address work discrimination and exploitation, and other programming. We embrace a membership model where decision making is collective. Our objective is to create belonging, a sense of collective ownership and empowerment modeled after solidarity efforts rooted in Latinx/Latin American historical experiences.
