Job Description

The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada (PLAN) was founded in 1994 by Nevada activists to build a more fair and just Nevada. Since 1994, our organization has grown from 12 original founding member groups to a current membership of nearly 40 organizations. PLAN is recognized by the IRS as a not for profit 501c3 charitable organization. PLAN’s mission is to build a more fair and just Nevada that puts people and planet first. We organize with frontline communities and directly impacted leaders to advocate for policies and community investments that improve people’s lives.

PLAN Action Fund was founded in 2012 as the political, 501c4, arm of PLAN. ​PLAN Action seeks to transform progressive ideas into action through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing, organizing advocacy, electoral organizing, and partnerships with other progressive leaders and organizations in Nevada.

**Position Summary: **PLAN’s Policy Manager will assist with the implementation and operationalization of PLAN and/or PLAN Action’s organizing and policy goals as they pertain to political organizing and legislative advocacy; to advance our campaign work toward building an anti-racist and equitable society at all levels of government (local, State, and federal). The position requires willingness to learn and deepen experience with public policy, organizing, analysis, and strategic organizing advocacy campaigns, the ability to develop intersectional strategy, build and maintain healthy coalitions, and a commitment to antiracism, gender equity, and social justice. This position requires an ability to build relationships with PLAN member groups, strategic partners, organizers, and leaders with integrity and humility, forecast and plan multiple projects several months in advance, attention to detail as well as big-picture political analysis, and consistent communication. The Policy Manager and organizing directors will work closely together to develop and implement an integrated power-building strategy for systemic change through organizing interventions that are accountable to and aligned with grassroots organizing. The Policy Manager will report to the Executive Director and serve as leadership on our policy team with PLAN coalition coordinators.
