Equal Citizens — a nonprofit organization founded by Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig — builds innovative campaigns and new ways for digital communications to have immediate impact on democracy reform in the U.S. We overcome the limitations of traditional reform groups by launching unconventional campaigns to achieve reform goals, and to shift the democracy reform narrative in order to get a critical mass of Americans across the political spectrum to agree that we must fix our broken democracy first before any other sensible reform is possible.

In 2017, we successfully launched a crowdfunding campaign for a legal challenge to the winner-take-all allocation of Electoral College votes at the state level. We’re also working on other innovative legal challenges to address various electoral reform issues. But we’re not just about election law--we’re planning to launch a series of effective grassroots actions and digital campaigns that will mobilize citizens across the country to support democracy reform.



The Campaign Manager will lead a team of campaign and digital consultants to develop and implement short and long-term action plans and digital communications strategies. The Manager will be responsible for delivering campaigns that promote Equal Citizens’ reform agenda and help grow our list of supporters. The Manager will develop and execute a comprehensive, integrated digital fundraising, advocacy and engagement strategy. They will manage all aspects of the digital strategy, including social media, from conception through execution and generate innovative content quickly and regularly.
