This individual reports to the Director of the Federal Policy Office, with a dotted line relationship to the Communications Director in WE ACT’s New York headquarters, and is a key player in the development, implementation and evaluation of traditional and digital communications programs and campaigns.

The Senior Communications Manager will execute a national communications strategy designed to support these objectives.
