COVID Straight Talk (CST) Lab is hiring a passionate and experienced senior writer to create content for our website and internal communications about the work we are doing with essential worker organizations to fight for COVID-19 safety. We work with the communities most impacted by the pandemic to make their workplaces more COVID-19 safe via legislative and labor organizing campaigns.  At the core of our communication campaign, we highlight the significance of aerosol and airborne transmission, the importance of improving indoor air quality, and the voices of essential workers about their experiences on the front lines. We believe that, just like food and water, people have a right to clean air. Air ventilation isn't just a technical matter, it's a workplace equity issue. Improving air ventilation is one of the most important ways as a country we can reduce the risk essential workers face, who are disproportionately BIPOC folks, of contracting COVID-19 at work. CST Lab amplifies data around the disparity and inequity caused by the pandemic as this information will help unions, worker groups and others further their political advocacy to address how COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted communities of color. 

As we enter into a phase where we will need to formally transition this initiative into the hands of our partner organizations, we are looking for a team member who can 1) help tell the story of the history of the organization and the impact of our work and 2) work with us to move into this new phase with care. The salary range for this role is $6,000-7,000 and is commensurate with experience. This position will be held for one to two months and we are looking for an immediate start date. 

Please send a resume and cover letter to info@lastmile.works
