Website All Above All
All* Above All, a project of New Venture Fund, is a catalyst for abortion justice, envisioning a world where abortion care is affordable, available, and supported for everyone who needs it. Launched in 2013 as a women of color-led effort to restore and sustain public insurance coverage of abortion, the organization changed the game a few short years later by mobilizing policymakers and the public around the harm of these bans, especially for those unable to make ends meet. After years of bold work that centers people of color working to make ends meet, All* Above All recently expanded its mission and scope beyond insurance coverage of abortion, to other abortion access issues and strategies, particularly at the intersection of racial, economic, and immigrant justice issues. All* knows that race, economic insecurity, and immigration status can multiply the already-massive barriers to abortion care, and that true abortion justice must incorporate these issues.
Throughout this transition, All*’s goal is to continue to empower a new generation to be bold and take action with All*’s uplifting approach, cross-movement work, and digital and grassroots strategies, to ensure that abortion care is available for all. As part of this expanding vision and strategy, All* is growing its staff team, currently at 13 members.
All* Above All now seeks to engage two Campaign Directors to lead federal, state, and local advocacy, culture change efforts, network development and other strategies that advance abortion access at the intersection of economic, immigrant, and racial justice. One Campaign Director will focus on medication abortion and abortion coverage campaigns, and one will focus on immigrant justice and network partnerships. The Campaign Directors will develop and implement emerging growth strategies in close coordination with each other, All* Above All’s Co-Presidents, federal, state, and communications strategies teams, and other staff, consultants, and network partners. The Campaign Directors will each supervise one to two staff members and will and report to the Co-President.
This search is being conducted by NPAG. Application instructions can be found at the end of this document.
All* Above All is a catalyst for abortion justice, envisioning a world where abortion care is affordable, available, and supported for everyone who needs it. Launched in 2013 as a women of color-led effort to restore and sustain public insurance coverage of abortion, the organization changed the game a few short years later by mobilizing policymakers and the public around the harm of these bans, especially for Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities working to make ends meet.
All* employs four pillars to advance abortion justice:
· As strategy accelerators, All* builds momentum and power by sharing tools, resources, and expertise with national, state, and local partners.

· Introduction of the EACH Act in the U.S. House and Senate.
· Collaborating with Illinois, Maine, and Oregon advocates to lift or expand insurance coverage for abortion.

· Ensuring that elected officials from city halls to the White House are committed to ending coverage bans.
· Partnering with economic justice organizations like One Fair Wage to support and pass the D.C. $15 per hour wage increase.
· Increasing public support for lifting the Hyde Amendment to an all-time high of 62%.
