About Campaign Legal Center 

Campaign Legal Center (CLC) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC. Through litigation, policy analysis, and public education, CLC works to protect and strengthen the U.S. democratic process across all levels of government. CLC is adamantly nonpartisan, holding candidates and government officials accountable regardless of political affiliation.

CLC was founded in 2002 and is a recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions. Our work today is more critical than ever as we fight the current threats to our democracy in the areas of campaign finance, voting rights, redistricting and ethics. CLC watchdogs government officials, provides expert analysis and helps journalists uncover violations. CLC also participates in legal proceedings across the country to defend the right to vote and ensure fair redistricting. 

CLC is seeking a Communications Manager to develop strategic communications plans that will elevate the issues of campaign finance and government ethics. The Communications Manager will report to CLC’s Chief Communications Officer and serve as a liaison between the communications team and the litigation/policy teams working on campaign finance and ethics. This position requires attention to detail, strong project management, excellent writing skills and ability to work some nights/weekends for rapid response, when necessary.  

With the 2020 election less than a year away, this is a critical role for the organization, and the ideal hire must have the experience to hit the ground running. We work in a fast-paced and collaborative environment, and only encourage team players to apply.
