About the organization:
States United Democracy Center is a new and growing nonpartisan organization advancing free, fair, and secure elections. We focus on connecting state officials, law enforcement leaders, and pro-democracy partners across America with the tools and expertise they need to safeguard our democracy. States United is engaged in legal actions to protect our elections and democracy. During the 2020 election, then as the Voter Protection Program, we quickly became a go-to resource for state leaders, the press, and partner organizations. By bringing together current and former governors, secretaries of state, attorneys general, and law enforcement leaders for the first time, we helped build a nonpartisan firewall against those trying to undermine democracy.
Salary will be between $90,000 and $140,000 and will be commensurate with experience.
Generous benefits include health, vision, and dental insurance, and retirement benefits.
Offices will be in DC, but this position can be remote in the long term.
