$50,000 - $85,000This is a 12-month-long, full-time contract position.

AFR has been called “the leading voice for Wall Street accountability” in Washington.

We are seeking a Campaign Project Manager (Corporate & Government Accountability of COVID Response Funding) to help us take the next steps in this important work. NOTE: This will be a 12-month, fulltime, project manager position.

Formed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, our coalition led the ‘outside’ campaign to strengthen and win passage of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform bill, including the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Since then we have fought Wall Street capture of policy making, improving countless rules and regulations, reigning in abuses by predatory lenders, and putting big new ideas on the table to transform the financial system. AFREF’s staff effectively advances the agenda of a broad and powerful coalition of more than 200 consumer, civil rights, labor, community-based, and other organizations, along with academics and experts, working together to move forward this fundamentally important set of levers for progress towards economic and racial justice.

In its legislative responses to the Coronavirus pandemic, Congress allocated trillions of dollars for economic relief with limited conditions attached to the subsidies. These subsidies should protect public health, sustain enterprises, save jobs, help workers, and provide support for struggling individuals, families, and communities.

The Campaign Project Manager will act in a leadership role in multifaceted work, with staff and our partners, related to oversight of COVID-19 funding and programs, including the Treasury/Federal Reserve facilities. This will include working with and helping to build an effective coalition, coordination of research and policy products, and thinking creatively about narratives, policy handles, strategies and tactics for engaging diverse organizations, driving a public narrative, and taking on corporate abuses.

The Campaign Project Manager will also:

  • Collaborate with AFR policy and communications staff, and with the policy and communications staff of coalition members, to develop and articulate compelling explanations of our goals, and to connect them to broader narratives about economic and racial justice.
  • Work with other AFREF staff to produce high-quality research and campaign products, including reports and white papers, fact sheets, communications materials, and letters to Congress and regulators;
  • Monitor, track, review, and summarize regulatory and legislative developments and actions by AFR and our coalition partners.
  • Represent the organization in meetings with allies and policy makers

The successful candidates will possess:

  • A strong commitment to economic and racial justice
  • At least 5 years of organizing, issue campaign and/or policy advocacy experience
  • Strong issue spotting, policy analysis and research skills
  • Write effectively for a broad range of audiences, including translating complicated policy issues into laypersons language
  • An ability to connect with many different kinds of organizations and constituency groups and experience working with diverse communities
  • The ability to drive results and to collaborate effectively with colleagues and allies
  • Be very well organized and comfortable working in a fast paced and diverse environment
