ReThink Media seeks a Communications Associate to support their Peace & Security Team, which works to advance a less violent and more just U.S. foreign policy. The Communications Associate will primarily work on our nuclear portfolio, supporting organizations and coalitions in advancing arms control and disarmament through tactics such as media pitching, op-ed editing, messaging guidance, and media strategy. The person in this role will work to advance strategic public messaging in support of arms control and disarmament policy initiatives with a particular focus on regional security issues, U.S.-China security relations, and support for frontline communities impacted by U.S. nuclear weapons development, testing, and use. We are open to hiring either an Associate or a Senior Associate, based on the experience the chosen candidate brings to the role.
ReThink Media is a unique, nonprofit organization that places media and communications at the center of our movement building agenda. We strengthen the collaborative media and communications capacity of state and national advocacy groups; increase the “voice share” of their spokespeople; and provide in-depth media, messaging, and opinion research to inform movement strategy.
We focus on long-term engagement with our advocacy partners and with the issues we take on—all driven by a belief that the stronger the groups are across an issue sector and the tighter their collaboration, the more likely they are to win real and lasting policy victories. At present, ReThink works in three distinct, yet interconnected, issue areas: the protection of human and civil rights; strengthening our democracy; and a more constructive US foreign and national security policy.
Our Peace and Security team works closely with the nation’s foremost leaders and experts, advocating solutions to some of the most complex and challenging national security issues of the 21st century, from nuclear security to ending our forever wars.
The Communications Associate reports to the Program Director of the Peace & Security team, and in addition to media training, they will be involved in strategic communications planning, media pitching, ghost-writing, coalition leadership, and media analysis.
We are looking for someone with a strong commitment to a more just and peaceful foreign policy, a rebalancing of our national resources away from war, and advancing an agenda of inclusion in foreign policy-making – an area wherein women and people of color are grossly under-represented.
