Description

Kentucky Equal Justice Center (KEJC) seeks a versatile communications specialist to enhance the impact of our advocacy, outreach, and fundraising. The Communications Coordinator will generate, gather, and distribute information and stories that:

  • communicate the benefits and outcomes of health care access in Kentucky and demonstrate the value of a robust public assistance safety net

  • inform debate and engage a growing social media audience in policy issues that affect low-income Kentuckians and working families

  • illustrate and foster equal access to justice

  • support our fundraising and development

Duties and Responsibilities

The Communications Coordinator will work with our director, staff, and partner organizations to: 

  • Establish and implement a communications calendar identifying audiences, topics, stories,  and distribution channels including paid media, earned media, and social media

  • Develop down-to-earth, non-partisan stories and messages that share concrete and accurate information about the implementation and impact of health reform in Kentucky

  • Help develop messaging themes and campaigns around advocacy topics from housing to hunger to immigration

  • Find low-income Kentuckians and other stakeholders willing to tell their story; obtain consent; meet deadlines for posting; and manage the resulting story bank

  • Create, schedule, and post KEJC social media messages consistent with the communications plan

  • Participate in national social media campaigns consistent with KEJC advocacy

  • Ensure reliability, consistency, clarity, and relevance in the use of data, including use of infographics to illustrate concepts and trends

  • Engage and empower respondents to our messages to participate in advocacy on their own behalf

  • Coordinate media outreach including press releases, press events, and editorial board contacts

  • Monitor print, broadcast, and social media for project-relevant articles and postings to share

  • Track relevant metrics to see whether messages reach and engage intended audiences

  • Keep up to date on state and federal programs and proposals that affect low income Kentuckians

  • Assist in reporting to funders and our board

Location

Remote work permitted.  KEJC has offices in Lexington and Louisville.  We seek to hire the most outstanding candidate for the position.  We consider geographic diversity within Kentucky both a strength and a challenge.  We will explore it with candidates invited to interview.
