The position involves administrative work, fundraising activity, and communicating with institutional and individual donors and prospects. Additionally, the Associate is directly involved in special events logistics and implementation.
The Policy Fellow is a twelve-month, renewable position that supports Democracy NC’s efforts to advance structural democracy reform and mitigate harm from voting restrictions through legislative, administrative, and legal channels. The Fellow will help develop and carry out the organization’s long-term reform agenda by conducting research and writing policy memoranda on specific policy ideas, their legal standing, models from North Carolina and elsewhere, and the details of their potential implementation. The position will also monitor legislative and administrative activity, maintain relationships with local, state, and national partner organizations, and assist with the creation of both voter education materials and persuasive advocacy content for traditional and social media.
