Job Announcement
Opportunities to Work on End Abuse’s Public Policy Team!
Are you passionate about advocating for, and with, survivors of domestic violence? Do you see the impact government and policies have on responses and prevention of domestic abuse in our state and nationally? Are you an experienced, persuasive, and empathetic communicator? If you answered yes to these questions, this may be the perfect position for you! End Domestic Abuse WI, the statewide coalition advocating against domestic violence, is hiring two positions on our Public Policy Team! This is a special opportunity to utilize your expertise to impact and change systems and structures that serve domestic abuse survivors.
1. The first position on our policy team will be focused on broad policy advocacy related to domestic abuse in the State Capitol and promoting End Abuse’s policy priorities. This position will also be responsible for media engagement, partner collaboration and coordination, as well as grassroots organizing to connect survivors with meaningful civic engagement opportunities.
2. The second position on our policy team will be focused on public policy analysis, as well as policy and systems advocacy. This position will focus on the topic of housing, coordinating and collaborating with key housing systems, evaluating trends, gaps and needs, and advocating for improvements to expand housing options for survivors. In addition to housing, End Abuse focuses on an array of issue areas that impact survivors.
