Digital Coordinator

Over the past two years, the Texas Civil Rights Project’s (“TCRP”) digital footprint has grown at least six-fold on all of our major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. Increasingly, we are able to mobilize our digital audience to take action on our goals — including through petitions, event attendance, grassroots contributions, earned media, and more. To help sustain our engagement and grow our impact on our online, TCRP now seeks a temporary Digital Coordinator dedicated to advancing our campaigns and projects related to our Racial & Economic Justice (REJ) program.

* Please note: this is a one-year position, any extension would be based on additional funding

The Digital Coordinator will be part of a team that will work together to accomplish the goals of our REJ campaigns — including ending family separation, holding Border Patrol accountable, stopping the Border Wall, and protecting the rights and dignity of asylum seekers. The Digital Coordinator will be responsible for reaching and growing a network of activists that are responsive and engaged with our campaigns and working with the team to engage them in other TCRP programs.

As part of the Community Engagement Department, the Digital Coordinator will be managed by the Advocacy & Communications Director and may be based in either TCRP’s Austin, Houston, North Texas, San Antonio, or South Texas office. Strong preference will be given to candidates who can be based in our South Texas office.
