Democracy & Technology Campaign Manager

Democracy & Technology Campaign Manager

Free Press Website

Free Press is a national non-profit with a staff of 36.   We work tirelessly for equitable access to technology, diverse and independent ownership of media platforms, and journalism that holds leaders accountable and tells people what’s actually happening in their communities. We’re fiesty, supportive and racial justice-oriented.  We’re looking for an experienced campaign manager to join our team.

The Democracy & Technology Campaign Manager engages Free Press’ more than 1 million members, hundreds of allies and the broader public on issues within our mission focused on democracy and technology, including issues around the First Amendment, surveillance, and other topics. This position builds national and local ally relationships, executes creative tactics, and develops engagement strategies to advance our campaigns.

The Campaign Manager’s focus may shift or expand to different campaigns and issue areas over time, including our work on platform accountability, fighting disinformation and hate, media accountability, and other organizational priorities. This position currently focuses on corporate-accountability campaigns — putting pressure on media and tech companies to stop the spread of hate and disinformation, advance racial equity and serve the public interest — as well as legislative and regulatory campaigns to protect digital civil rights for all.

Experience and qualifications required to succeed in this position:

  • No minimum education is required; a bachelor’s degree may be an indicator of capacity for this position
  • 4+ years of directly relevant experience advocating for policy change as part of a nonprofit public interest organization or similar setting is required
  • Experience working with, building and leading diverse winning coalitions
  • Strong interest in media, technology and journalism issues and demonstrated experience working on those or similar issues
  • Experience supervising volunteers or interns
  • Experience leading successful organizing efforts with a combination of online and/or offline organizing, rapid-response work, volunteer engagement, political advocacy, training and reporting
  • Must have strong communications skills including writing, editing, and public speaking
  • Spanish language fluency is a plus
