Staff Writer

The American Economic Liberties Project is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to fighting monopoly power. Together with Fight Corporate Monopolies, our sister 501(c)4 organization, we combine policy and regulatory expertise with strategic communications, coalition-building, and advocacy campaigns to help ensure policymakers protect workers, small businesses, communities, and democracy from monopolistic corporations to advance economic liberty for all.

We are seeking a Staff Writer to support our communications and development teams. The ideal candidate for this position has experience synthesizing complex legal and policy documents into clear, compelling prose — and a passion for fighting corporate power. 

In this role you will:

  • Draft op-eds, talking points, scripts, speeches, statements, and event invitations for Economic Liberties’ and Fight Corporate Monopolies’ senior leadership team;
  • Distill longer research into more accessible, popular writing for Economic Liberties’ and Fight Corporate Monopolies’ website and social media channels;
  • Draft regular updates (e.g., newsletter) to communicate Economic Liberties’ work to its allies and supporters;
  • Draft grant proposals, reports, and other development-related content;
  • Help to create and shape Economic Liberties’ and Fight Corporate Monopolies’ written materials to maximize their relevancy to members of Congress and their staffs; and
  • Become fluent in the range of policy solutions available to address concentrated corporate power.

About you:

  • At least 2 years of 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;
  • 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.

The salary range is $60,000 — $70,000 plus excellent employer-paid full coverage benefits, including health, dental, and vision, as well as generous vacation and unlimited sick days, employer matching 401k plan, and up to twelve weeks parental leave. Compensation is commensurate with experience. We strongly encourage LGBTQ, women, and people of color to apply.
