GENERAL PURPOSE OF THE POSITION: The Policy Advocate for Domestic Issues shall participate in and have primary responsibility for leading the work of the domestic public policy advocacy of Justice and Witness Ministries, including but not limited to the following:
a) Washington-based advocacy; b) grassroots advocacy; c) media advocacy; and d) electronic advocacy. The person in this position will regularly work in cooperation with national staff of the United Church of Christ. The greatest majority of the work will be carried out with ecumenical and interfaith groups in Washington, various settings of the United Church of Christ, and in secular coalitions.
Because of changing legislative limits and opportunities, shifting public policy priorities in Justice and Witness Ministries and with ecumenical and interfaith coalitions, the person in this position must be flexible in learning and responding to various areas of policy that have been identified. The focus may vary from a tightly to more broadly driven agenda. This staff person will also work in advisory roles on issues that are not in the highest priority tier of the work plan.
It is understood that issues of justice and peace, civil and human rights, environmental justice, and other advocacy issues that may have a particular United States-based focus often have international dimensions, therefore close collaborations with advocates focused on such issues is expected.
