In our 15+ years, we’ve helped to curb fake news on Facebook, build the restorative justice movement, secure same-sex marriage in New York State, launch Lin-Manuel Miranda’s career, and position a podcasting startup to be acquired by Spotify for $56 million.

The ideal candidate is someone who has:

  • Experience in nonprofit, politics, or public affairs, particularly within racial justice, education, the arts, the environment, or tech policy

  • A track record of placing stories in a range of national media
  • Excellent writing skills and experience in writing op-eds, press releases, and pitches
  • Ability to develop and execute media strategies
  • Experience in managing multiple projects and deadlines

Candidate requirements:

  • 3-6 years of experience in PR including day-to-day account management, media relations, and writing
  • Based in the New York City area. The position, however, will be work from home for next several months at minimum

Benefits — we offer a competitive salary and benefits including:

  • Health and dental insurance
  • 10 paid holidays per year
  • Paid time off between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day
