About NARAL Pro-Choice America

For more than 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its chapters have fought to protect and expand reproductive freedom —including access to abortion and contraception — for every body.

We are powered by our more than 2.5 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 7 in 10 Americans who believe every person should have the freedom to make the best decision for themselves about if, when, and how to raise a family. 

NARAL Pro-Choice America centers diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in our organization and our work. Continuously learning from our history, we hold ourselves accountable to achieve reproductive freedom with equitable access for everybody.

As the oldest and largest national membership organization primarily focused on advocating for abortion access, we organize and mobilize, galvanizing millions of people to take action to defend reproductive freedom, and shining a spotlight of accountability on bad actors who work to impose their ideological agenda on others. We also work to elect champions for reproductive freedom and advance state and federal legislation to safeguard it.

About the role:

You will develop and execute a strategy for creating a data-driven culture throughout every aspect of NARAL’s programs and campaigns, aligned and in support of the overall mission and goals of the organization. It is critical that you build stakeholder relationships across the organization to drive these goals.

You have an ability to synthesize and operationalize strategic objectives to tactical outputs and a capability to define and deliver highly complex enterprise grade data management solutions according to plan with the appropriate timeline and team members. 

You will bring creative thinking, humor, problem solving skills, and a never-ending desire for learning.
