Fight for Our Rights Action Executive Director
Fight for Our Rights Action and sister organization Fight for Our Rights PAC are working to harness and grow the political power of the LGBTQ+ community by electing champions for equality and removing anti-freedom elected officials from office.
We are searching for an Executive Director to lead our organization into the future.
In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, anti-gay rhetoric and attacks on LGBTQ+ rights have grown bolder and louder across the country, including among extreme right-wing elected officials and political leaders. With the right to privacy under attack and with opponents to the LGBTQ+ community winning the political narrative, we need to build political power and reframe the conversation to bolster our legal protections in states around the country.
Fight for Our Rights Action works to:
Expand protections by electing new equality champions;
Build a political strategy that can quickly respond to the attacks seen across the country;
Hold accountable those in power who actively work to dismantle our rights and attack our community;
Protect our hard-won rights and expand protections for the LGBTQ+ community;
Combat disinformation and threats to individual and civil rights.
Fight for Our Rights Action has a related PAC, Fight for Our Rights PAC, that this role would also oversee.
The threats against our community call us to do all we can to protect the rights, freedoms, and safety of LGBTQ+ individuals and families.
Fight for Our Rights Action is seeking a talented strategist and fundraiser to serve as Executive Director and lead this organization. The ideal candidate will have:
Strategic issue-based independent expenditure campaign experience, hard and independent campaign experience and/or direct candidate campaign experience;
Experience engaging with donors of all stripes; experience raising in the LGBTQAI+ community a plus;
Experience with both qualitative and quantitative research;
An ability to manage a lean operation that is focused on consequential and concrete wins.
How to apply:
We are looking for someone who can run both a c4 and PAC operation. Location is flexible. The salary range for this position is $200,000 – $225,000, based on experience. Please submit your resume and a one-pager telling us about the hardest professional thing you’ve done and how it informs the way you approach your work now.
