  • Help to create and shape Economic Liberties and Fight Corporate Monopolies’ written materials to maximize their relevancy to members of Congress and their staffs;
  • Monitor media coverage of corporate power and corporate abuse to spot trends and opportunities for rapid response and new, creative campaigns and tactics that engage our partners and support our political goals;
  • Pitch national, local, and broadcast reporters to secure earned media coverage that highlights Economic Liberties and Fight Corporate Monopolies’ products, campaigns, and/or key messages;  
  • Support engagement in existing and future coalition efforts; and
  • Become fluent in the range of policy solutions available to address concentrated corporate power.

A strong candidate will have:

  • At least 3 years of communications or writing experience in a fast-paced environment, ideally on a political campaign, newsroom, or advocacy organization;
  • Strong writing skills and the ability to synthesize complex topics into both long form pieces and concise talking points; 
  • A demonstrated ability to pitch stories and develop relationships with national and/or state reporters;
  • Great communications skills over phone, email, and chat;
  • Strong organizational skills and an ability to juggle multiple tasks;
  • Methodical approach to setting and reaching goals;
  • Enjoy building new relationships and being a team player;
  • Self-directed, creative, and adaptive to dynamic project needs; 
  • Sense of curiosity about how markets work and ways policy could help decentralize economic power; and
  •  An interest in politics and awareness of day-to-day political developments relevant to competition policy.
