Maintaining a healthy work environment: Non Profit job team members are responsible for helping to maintain a healthy, inclusive, and positive work environment. LUCHA offices are meant to be an open and affirming workplace, and the campaign job team members are expected to maintain positive, inclusive, and open-minded attitudes.
