Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition

Finance Coordinator

Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition


Job Summary


The Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) is a statewide, immigrant and refugee-led collaboration. Our mission is to build power, amplify our voices, and organize communities to advocate for our rights. Our vision is a stronger, more inclusive Tennessee where people of all nationalities, immigration statuses, and racial identities can belong and thrive. TIRRC has an affiliated entity, TIRRC Votes, a separate, but related, nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Although TIRRC and TIRRC Votes share a common goal of building power for immigrants and refugees in Tennessee, they are separate organizations with their own boards of directors. A set of employees at the two organizations, including the person filling this position, shares their time between the two organizations. This has no effect on salary or benefits.

Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, military or veteran status, marital status, or parental status. Immigrants, refugees, and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
