Chief of Strategies and Campaigns

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 campaign 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. At this unique moment of growth and transformation, All*’s Co-Presidents, Silvia Henriquez and Destiny Lopez, recently announced their departure from All* Above All, leaving a strong and auspicious future for abortion coverage and abortion justice. All* will soon be preparing to bring on its next President, who will lead the campaign into its next era of leadership and contribution to the movement. Building on the legacy of the outgoing Co-Presidents, All* presently seeks a Chief of Strategies and Campaigns (CSC) to help lead and strengthen its exceptional team to meet the critical needs of the moment.

As a key member of the Executive Team, the CSC will support and oversee the campaigns and initiatives teams as they execute All*’s vision and strategy. The CSC will ensure operational efficiency, as well as strategic focus and alignment across All*’s campaign teams and functions, and cultivate a culture of openness, innovation, and collaboration across the organization. They will serve as a connector, problem-solver, and coach who holds the vision of All*’s projects and connects the dots across all campaigns. The CSC works collaboratively to set the organizational direction, establish priorities, and facilitate cross-organization collaboration and innovation for All* Above All and All* Above All Action Fund. The CSC will report to the President of All* Above All.

The CSC will be results-driven and able to meet adversity with tenacity. They will be a master organizer and project planner who consistently looks ahead and anticipates needs before they arise. They will be a natural problem-solver, and analytical and structured in their thinking. They create order out of chaos by identifying systems and processes in need of refining. They deeply understand campaign operations and can synthesize information to recommend a plan of action. A successful CSC will be positive, empathetic, flexible, and curious.
