Policy Assistant with the National Network to End Domestic Violence

The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) seeks a highly-organized and motivated Policy Assistant. The ideal candidate communicates effectively and is able to prioritize and perform duties in a fast-paced environment. NNEDV is a social change organization dedicated to creating a social, political and economic environment in which violence against women no longer exists.

The Public Policy team works proactively on Capitol Hill to make ending domestic violence a national priority. NNEDV’s members are state and territorial coalitions representing domestic violence shelters and programs in every state and territory in the nation. NNEDV ensures these voices and the voice of survivors are represented at the federal level. Each year, the Policy team oversees the National Census of Domestic Violence Services (Census) provided by local domestic violence programs, in which we survey thousands of local programs each September to provide a one-day snapshot of the services provided to victims throughout the nation and to document unmet requests for services. This nationwide census is a key policy tool at both the state and national levels.

The Policy Assistant will be a core member of the Public Policy team, helping to implement NNEDV’s policy priorities in a multitude of ways, including coordinating the annual Advocacy Day conference and managing the Census process. This candidate will be highly organized and effective at functioning both independently and as a member of a team. The ideal candidate will also possess a positive attitude and take initiative in solving problems.
