Protect Democracy is a national organization that also engages in work at the state and local level to protect our democratic institutions. We have a distributed workforce, with staff based around the country, including in Boston, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Philadelphia, Virginia, and Washington D.C. By having staff distributed throughout the country, we are able to draw on the best talent nation-wide, and also operate on the ground in multiple regions more effectively.
We are looking to build our presence in Michigan, though staff we hire in Michigan, like all of our staff, will not be limited to Michigan-based work. We expect that this person will work on projects across Protect Democracy’s portfolio of work including proposing projects that they think will have a high impact on our mission, while taking the lead where necessary on projects specific to the Michigan region.
While an existing familiarity with an experience operating in the Michigan political, legal, policy and media landscape is a plus, it is not required. Excellent candidates will be able to quickly build a footprint in that landscape as necessary to advance Protect Democracy’s mission.
