We are excited to announce that we are adding another position to our growing staff.
We are seeking a dynamic, innovative, and passionate individual to serve as the full-time Voting Rights Project Manager. This is a newly created, temporary position with responsibility for helping to create and implement a plan to educate, organize and advocate to support people in exercising their right to vote.
Between now and Election Day, the Voting Rights Project Manager will help advocate for state policies to ensure that people can safely and efficiently exercise their right to vote during the pandemic, assist with organizing ACLU-WV’s election protection program, educate the public (focusing on historically disenfranchised groups) on their voting rights, and engage in other nonpartisan voter outreach activities aimed at maximizing participation in the 2020 general election. After Election Day, the Voting Rights Project Manager will be laser focused on getting the West Virginia legislature to pass legislation that makes it easier for people to vote.
This position is an incredible opportunity for someone who wants to focus on an ambitious but achievable project to expand access to democracy in West Virginia. This is a job for someone who dreams of making our government more responsive, transparent, equitable and just.
The ACLU-WV main office is in Charleston. However, the Voting Rights Project Manager will be working statewide. At this time, most staff are working remotely. During the legislative session, the Voting Rights Project Manager will likely need to regularly be at the Capitol. The Voting Rights Project Manager will report directly to the ACLU of West Virginia’s Executive Director and will work in close collaboration with the ACLU-WV's Policy Director, as well as community outreach, communications, and legal staff.
This position is temporary and is expected to last through April 2021.
We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourage women, people of color, people with disabilities and LGBTQ people to apply. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. The ACLU of West Virginia strongly encourages applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, criminal history, and veteran status.
