  • Work on the following: legislative targeting, development of materials/collateral, grassroots activism/ recruitment, fundraising, media and lobbying while managing internal structures and processes. 
  • Oversee contractor and lobbyist contracts and assist them in navigating internal C&C structures, policies and practices.  
  • Recruit, train and manage local action teams and volunteers in campaign states, near-next states, authorized states and assigned constituency groups to become successful campaign leaders in collaboration with the National Volunteer Program to build broader support for the end-of-life choice movement.
  • Apply best practices to develop and implement customized, strategic technical assistance plans necessary to support legislators, legislative staffers and key healthcare industry stakeholders (regulatory agencies, allied organizations, academic policy experts, and other governmental and non-governmental agencies) in both campaign and authorized states, leveraging areas of common interest to achieve our goals.

Preferred Qualifications (You will be a good fit):

Education and Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field (e.g., Political Science, Public Policy, Law, Journalism) - or equivalent combination of education and/or experience.

  • Experience working on a political or issue campaign strongly preferred. 
  • Experience supervising staff and/or volunteers

Skills:
