All* Above All, a project of New Venture Fund, is a catalyst for abortion justice, envisioning a world where abortion care is affordable, available, and supported for everyone who needs it. Launched in 2013 as a women of color-led effort to restore and sustain public insurance coverage of abortion, the organization changed the game a few short years later by mobilizing policymakers and the public around the harm of these bans, especially for those unable to make ends meet. After years of bold work that centers people of color working to make ends meet, All* Above All recently expanded its mission and scope beyond insurance coverage of abortion, to other abortion access issues and strategies, particularly at the intersection of racial, economic, and immigrant justice issues. All* knows that race, economic insecurity, and immigration status can multiply the already-massive barriers to abortion care, and that true abortion justice must incorporate these issues.
Throughout this transition, All*’s goal is to continue to empower a new generation to be bold and take action with All*’s uplifting approach, cross-movement work, and digital and grassroots strategies, to ensure that abortion care is available for all. As part of this expanding vision and strategy, All* is growing its staff team, currently at 13 members.
All* Above All is seeking a Communications Director to lead and support All* Above All’s communications work, identify new opportunities, and raise the visibility of All*’s abortion justice work in the media and public narrative. The Communications Director will work closely with All*’s leadership, campaign and strategy directors, and other team members to develop and implement robust communications strategies related to abortion coverage, medication abortion care, immigrant justice, ballot initiatives, and any future campaigns, including message development, earned media, digital strategy, and brand oversight. The Communications Director will report to the Co-President and works regularly with consultants and campaign partners.
