  • Closing Date: 30/09/2016

Description 

The Advocacy Program Manager (APM) will collaborate with CCR staff and our allies on dynamic advocacy campaigns and initiatives that advance CCR’s organizational mission and support CCR’s clients, focusing principally on our international human rights work but also on U.S.-based campaigns. The APM will also contribute to broader strategic thinking around CCR’s advocacy campaign models, objectives, targets, messaging, methodology, goals, and plans.

The ideal candidate is a visionary who has in-depth experience working on campaigns and/or working effectively in coalitions, and has the ability to develop and implement strategies and approaches to effective advocacy around a variety of social justice issues. This is a position that requires creative thinking, deep collaboration with colleagues across CCR’s Legal & Advocacy, Communications, and Development departments, a commitment to partnering with community and movement allies and partners, powerful communications skills, and comfort with working in both national and international contexts.

This position involves leading advocacy campaigns and initiatives at CCR, focusing on our international human rights work (including advocacy in support of Palestinian human rights).
