The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire (ACLU-NH), the state’s largest and most influential civil rights organization, seeks a committed and proactive Policy Director to engage key legislators, policy makers, and advocacy organizations in advancing local, state, and federal policies as they relate to the ACLU-NH’s overarching civil rights and civil liberties agenda. The Policy Director will join a passionate and highly engaged team that is actively fighting against unprecedented attacks on civil rights and civil liberties to realize the vision of a fair, equitable, and free New Hampshire that welcomes and celebrates diversity of all kinds. This leadership position offers a meaningful opportunity to impact the most pressing issues in civil liberties policy today.
The Policy Director engages with administrative agencies, local government bodies, and state congressional delegations, and collaborates with other staff on integrated advocacy initiatives and issue campaigns. Working closely with the ACLU-NH Legal Director, Communications Director, Director of Community Outreach, Development Director, and staff at ACLU National, the Policy Director will have a chance to build on collective efforts to challenge laws that infringe on individual freedom, support laws that protect and expand civil liberties, as well as nurture and maintain funder relationships.
