Summary:

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through training, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.

The Women’s March has become a leader in the disinformation defense space through our innovative inoculation program, Digital Defenders. We’ve trained thousands of activists to challenge right-wing narratives on the internet on issues that matter most to women such as abortion, immigration, climate and policing, to name a few. We’ve propped up a successful rapid response election disinformation hub, held big-tech accountable with our valued coalition partners, launched a disinformation defense meme and gif library and set up bold inoculation initiatives to loosen the grip of right wing online cults. We’re searching for a Director of Digital Advocacy to lead this work and expand our programmatic offerings. The Director will serve in a leadership position at the organization.
