NARAL Pro-Choice America and NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation seek an experienced and dedicated Senior Campaign Director for this dynamic, mission-driven organization that has been at the forefront of the fight for reproductive rights since its founding in 1968. NARAL has an annual budget of approximately $12 million and encompasses a 501(c)(3), a 501(c)(4), and a political action committee.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is the nation's leading advocate for reproductive freedom and protecting a woman's right to choose her own reproductive destiny. With more than 1 million members and supporters, NARAL Pro-Choice America is dedicated to mobilizing and building the base of pro-choice advocates, identifying and supporting pro-choice candidates, and advancing sound reproductive policies that support women and families at all stages of their reproductive lives. These policies include preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion.
NARAL specifically and the reproductive rights movement generally is facing an embarrassment of riches when it comes to campaign opportunities. From political races where reproductive rights are central, to state legislation where most restrictions and advancements are occurring, to the cultural conversation where feminism, family, and access to abortion and contraception are taking center stage, NARAL finds itself in the middle of a movement moment. In order to effectively leverage this moment in service of our mission, we are seeking a highly strategic, savvy communicator who can add capacity to lead a dynamic and expert team toward more campaign successes.
The Senior Campaign Director will have primary responsibility for day-to-day oversight and management of all campaigns conducted by NARAL's program team. In conjunction with the Senior Vice President of Campaigns and Strategy and the President, the Senior Campaign Director will help develop long- and short-term campaign strategy—including political, legislative, field, digital, and communication components—to achieve NARAL's goals of advancing reproductive rights and increasing our political and organizing power.
The Senior Campaign Director will coordinate integration of individual departments' strengths into forward-facing campaigns. S/he will be responsible for surfacing campaign ideas from all departments and fostering collaboration across all program departments to aggressively support the vision and direction of the President. This position will be external as well as internal, representing NARAL out in the world to allied organizations, the media, political campaigns, and donors.
