Democracy SOS 2024 – Liaison and Digital Producer

Deadline to apply: April 12, 2024 (midnight PST)

 Our Democracy SOS initiative is looking for a full-time partner liaison and digital producer to support our 2024 initiatives on a six-month contract. We are in the process of securing a variety of non-partisan partners in the journalism and civic space to help journalists respond to critical election information needs. 

We’re looking for someone who can liaise with our partners and help produce useful content and experiences for journalists, editors, producers and newsrooms covering the 2024 election at a local and national level.

This is an opportunity for a skilled communicator and coordinator to provide critical information and concrete support to U.S. journalists during the 2024 election. You’ll work at the beating heart of an ecosystem of journalism and civic support organizations collaborating to fuel a functioning democracy. 

Our goals for 2024 are to help connect and fill gaps in the ecosystems to help journalists, election officials and democracy efforts have the information and connections they need to support the public in getting timely, factual information concerning elections.
