About Us

The Renew Democracy Initiative (RDI) is dedicated to pulling American democracy back from the brink and restoring its place as a beacon for global freedom. Founded by a diverse, cross-partisan group of leaders, including former world chess champion Garry Kasparov, Senators Heidi Heitkamp and Bob Kerrey, and Pulitzer Prize winners Anne Applebaum and Bret Stephens, we are committed to combating the threats of far-right and far-left radicalism. With autocratic movements growing in strength around the globe, we must make a stand in defense of liberal democracy in the US. American leadership is paramount to guiding the free world through its current political, economic, and health crises.

The Role

The Writer & Editor will spearhead creating RDI’s public-facing work, which will include writing & ghost-writing opinion pieces, video scripts, and other educational materials to support RDI’s mission. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in American politics and global affairs, experience in opinion writing, and a willingness to be a voice in our national discourse. The Writer & Editor will also support other RDI efforts in fundraising, event planning, and social media as needed.
