Many Voices seeks an energetic Communications Associate to provide support for Black church organizing in Washington, DC, North Carolina and nationally.

Mission and strategy

Many Voices envisions a Black church and community that embraces the diversity of the human family and ensures that all are treated with love, compassion, and justice.

To fulfill that vision, Many Voices is transforming the inaccurate narrative that the entire Black church is negative.

  • We raise the voices of Black gay and transgender Christians who, despite rejection and condemnation, contribute so much.
  • And we equip and bring forward influential Black leaders to demonstrate that their support for LGBT equality and justice is deeply rooted in the Black religious experience and entirely consistent with being Christian.

We do this to create space for a new, thoughtful dialogue about fairness, equality, and justice for everyone.

Role description

The associate will work closely with the Co-Directors on all aspects of outreach and communications including social media, events, fundraising and data management, coordination with partner organizations, and communication with Many Voices’ constituents.

Many Voices’ employees work from home offices in Metro Washington, DC and at other locations as required. Many Voices reimburses full-time employees for cell phone and high-speed internet services and any other equipment that is required to conduct Many Voices’ business. Travel is infrequent.

Qualifications

The successful candidate must be strongly committed to Many Voices’ mission, brand, and invitational approach. In addition, we are looking for an individual with excellent interpersonal skills, an ability to work independently and as part of a larger team, and a sense of humor. Specifically:

  • Strong communication skills, both written and interpersonal;
  • Grounding in Black church context;
  • Experienced with basic HTML and multiple online platforms including social media, database management, Adobe Creative Suite, and mass email marketing;
  • Takes pride in time management and attention to detail;
  • Effective team player who both takes initiative and knows when to check in;
  • Minimum two years’ experience in grassroots/community organizing or comparable work;
  • An ability to balance immediate and long term needs;
  • Talent for thinking strategically to ensure effective delivery and coordination of Many Voices’ programs, communications, and organizational goals.

Salary will be determined based on experience. Start date is as soon as possible upon hiring.
