Description

BACKGROUND

Freedom for All Americans is the bipartisan campaign to secure full nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people nationwide. Freedom for All Americans includes two separate entities – Freedom for All Americans and Freedom for All Americans Education Fund, collectively referred to as Freedom for All Americans (FFAA). Our work brings together conservatives and progressives, businesses large and small, people of faith, and allies from all walks of life to make the case for comprehensive non-discrimination protections that ensure everyone is treated fairly and equally.

With the ultimate goal of securing nationwide nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans, Freedom for All Americans works at the federal, state, and local level to grow public support for comprehensive and inclusive nondiscrimination protections, protect more people from discrimination, and build the team of advocates and influencers advocating for nondiscrimination protections. Founded in 2015, FFAA is a virtual organization with staff located across the country.


POSITION OVERVIEW

FFAA is seeking a Constituency Organizing Manager to join our campaign team and support outreach to, and activation of, key messengers in support of comprehensive nondiscrimination protections for the LGBTQ community in September of 2019. The Constituency Organizing Manager should be an individual deeply committed to advancing LGBTQ equality and LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections.

Experienced applicants are encouraged to apply for this full-time position, which will be responsible for identification, tracking, stewardship, and activation of both unlikely advocates and individuals with strong personal stories detailing the urgency and need for inclusive protections. The Constituency Organizing Manager will work closely with FFAA and partner staff to identify leads and also have the ability to conduct “cold” calls and make strong asks over the phone.

Supported by Freedom for All Americans’ communications and digital teams, an emphasis will be placed on creating opportunities to demonstrate public support and to publicize stories through earned media stories, Op Eds, written statements or quotes, online profiles and in-person media events. The Constituency Organizing Manager will assist supporters in the development of their personal story and be able to coordinate successful transfer of media prospect information to FFAA colleagues.

The Constituency Organizing Manager will also provide support to existing constituency programs, including research of potential advocates, tracking of supporter engagement, and production of communications to members of FFAA constituent programs. The successful Constituency Organizing Manager will be comfortable with detailed tracking and reporting and have the ability to work on multiple projects simultaneously.

The Constituency Organizing Manager reports to the Vice President of Campaigns and will interface closely with many members of the team. People of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender diverse people, women, and people of all political backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
