The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic and reproductive justice. Together with our members, we advocate for cultural and political change to ensure access for people who face the greatest obstacles to abortion access: women with lower income, women of color, young women, and transgender and gender nonconforming people. This is an exciting time for NNAF as we grow, nurture new funds emerging in underserved areas, deepen our support for funds working within the reproductive justice framework, and co-lead a bold national coalition campaign to increase abortion access by restoring Medicaid coverage for abortion. We are working to make access to abortion a reality for everyone, no matter their resources. We are building a movement, mentoring young leaders, and working toward a world in which everyone can shape their own futures and families. We invite you to join us as the newest member of our dedicated and growing team.
NNAF is comprised of a multi-racial, multi-religious, gender expansive staff of 31, located across the United States. We know how important it is to support our remote staff to maintain connection and cohesiveness as a team. To this end, we ensure weekly one-on-one supervision, face-to-face virtual staff meetings, quarterly in-person meetings, and more.
Supervised by: Deputy Director of Network Strategies
Supervises: Organizing Manager and Movement-Building Leadership Manager
Status: The position is full-time, exempt, salaried.
Compensation: $80,000-88,000, commensurate with experience, with competitive benefits package
Travel Expectations: Ability to travel as job requires, approximately 12 times minimum per year. Travel will primarily be overnight, for approximately 2-5 days, and national. Occasional international travel may be required. Regardless of where employee lives, and barring travel delays outside of an individual’s control, must be able to arrive at destination on-time.
As NNAF’s Organizing Director you will play a key role as a team leader, strategist, innovator, and implementer to build and mobilize the left-flank organizing power of this network’s base toward intersectional abortion access. You will develop strategies and programs to expand and deepen movement-building efforts with 70+ member organizations, individual members, and network leaders across the country and world. These strategies must align with and further NNAF’s strategic plan, which centers those most impacted by abortion access barriers and that activates this network’s niche potential as a fundraising and organizing powerhouse. You have radical vision and demonstrated practice in building political, cultural, and community power from the grassroots – at scale and in an intense political climate. You understand the history of organizing and have knowledge of in-person and online strategies that build leadership and engagement and ultimately win at local, state, regional, and network-wide scales. Experience leading both 501c3 and 501c4 work a plus.
NNAF is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against any individual based on any non-merit factor, and is committed to an equitable workplace where everyone is treated as a respected and valued member of the team. NNAF actively seeks to build and maintain a diverse staff with regard to race, culture, ethnicity, class, religion, physical ability, age, gender, and sexual orientation. As an organization working in solidarity with the reproductive justice movement, NNAF is committed to fostering the leadership and elevating the voices of women, young people, people of color, Native people, immigrant and refugees, low-income people, LGBQ+ people, transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary people, people who have had abortions, people with disabilities, young parents, people who were formerly imprisoned, people who have received funding for abortions, and people living in the many intersections of these experiences. We strongly encourage people from these communities to apply.
