(Letter from Jenee Jahn, MAVIN Interim President) 

Interested in serving on the working Board of Directors of MAVIN?  Are you up for working with an incredible anti-racist educational organization that supports the mixed heritage community?  Want to gain invaluable experience about non-profit organizations AND work towards building a more just and inclusive community?  Think MAVIN!  We are accepting applications for FOUR open board positions RIGHT NOW!  

As many of you know, I have been an active part of the MAVIN Board of Director family for the past three years.  Throughout this time, I have had the opportunity to form some solid friendships with leading multiracial activists and organizers throughout the country and, especially, here in Seattle.  I am indebted to the dedicated and hard working people that make MAVIN the dynamic organization that it is.  And, it is my pleasure to share this opportunity with more folks.  Please consider applying now.    

Who is MAVIN looking for?  MAVIN is looking for motivated, self-starting, hard working individuals who share the goals, values, and direction of the MAVIN Foundation.  We are looking for folks who have expertise in an area that would help MAVIN grow and continue its success.  Specific skills and experience with fundraising, grant writing, leadership, technical/computer skills, public speaking, PR, and general education and knowledge about the mixed race communities is desired.  Additionally, as an all-working board, we need individuals who can contribute a set amount of time every month dedicated to MAVIN work.  

The MAVIN Foundation is the nation's leading organization that supports and educates the community on the experiences of mixed race & mixed heritage people and families, including transracial adoptees and interracial marriages.  MAVIN's projects include the mixed heritage center website, the largest clearinghouse of online information and resources for mixed heritage people, and the Multiracial Child Resource book edited by Dr. Maria P.P. Root and MAVIN founder, Matt Kelley.  Other projects include family workshops, speaking engagements, films, and collaboration with other mixed heritage organizations.  

Please take a few moments to consider this request for either yourself or someone you know who may be a good fit.  WEe look forward to speaking with interested candidates!  If there are any questions, please call or email Mary Lingenfelter at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Have a resume and a letter of interest handy!  

Thank you and I hope all goes well with you and your loved ones.
