Let’s Work Together






Berkshire Interfaith Organizing (BIO) is comprised of member groups who are committed to organizing together for greater justice and a better quality of life for all in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. 


Building upon the momentum of our transitional Director/Lead Organizer and our newly formed Leadership Team, BIO has reached out to new member groups and reaffirmed the commitment of its founding members.  We are seeking a Director/Lead Organizer with the energy and passion to guide BIO as we continue to rebuild and grow our power as a force for change in our region, as well as pursue affiliation with state and national networks.


We pursue these goals:

  • by building community across lines of income, religion and geography,

  • developing the leadership skills of members within our congregations and organizations,

  • and taking action on economic and social justice issues of shared concern.


We work to ensure that those affected by the issues craft the solutions to achieve systemic change.  To help us achieve our goals, we seek a dynamic, experienced organizer who is ready to collaborate with us on all these fronts, so we can continue to make positive changes for all Berkshire residents.


BIO is currently a member of the InterValley Project (IVP) network, which works to organize for justice in communities across New England.
