The South Orange Maplewood Community Coalition on Race is seeking a paid, part-time Marketing Consultant to help develop and execute targeted marketing strategies that reach and attract prospective residents of color to the South Orange - Maplewood community.

The 2016 Demographic Changes in South Orange and Maplewood Study completed by the Community Coalition on Race revealed that “there is now a distinct trend in the increase of White in-movers in SOMA (South Orange/Maplewood), an increase in Asian and Hispanic in-movers, and a decrease in Black in-movers… (So)The question for SOMA is how do we stay competitive in attracting and retaining non-white populations (especially Black in-movers) and maintain the diversity that we cherish as we face the ‘white re-entry’ phenomenon?”

The Community Coalition on Race has conducted audience research to better define and understand the target market, as well as key messaging points. Now, we are looking for a multi-faceted marketing expert who can take this work and use it to develop and execute an effective strategy to help us reach and attract potential Black in-movers to our community.
