Online Safety Campaign Director
We strongly encourage you to apply if this role and our mission sounds interesting to you, even if you are not sure you meet all of the qualifications. We are interested in a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds.
A LITTLE ABOUT US
We serve over 3 million subscribers with content across several platforms and channels (Facebook/Instagram Messenger, SMS, Email, TikTok, Instagram, and web) and reach tens of millions of parents each year through viral content, influencer partnerships, and earned media. We use those same channels to organize parents to speak out in favor of economic justice, pandemic relief, public education, affordable childcare, kids health, racial justice, online safety, and other important priorities. You can learn more about our work on our website, Instagram and Tiktok.
We mobilize parents on some of the most critical issues impacting families today, particularly focusing on tech accountability, economic justice, public education, affordable childcare, kids health, racial justice, and LGBTQIA+ rights.
As an organization, we work collaboratively to solve challenges together. Our strategy framework is based on lean startup principles. We try out ideas quickly, see what works, and iterate. We drive massive impact on high-stakes issues, in a positive, low-ego, low-drama work environment.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Social media companies are now the worlds most powerful entities and their unchecked power is devastating to children and families. They track children and sell their private information to third parties; expose kids to sexual predators, extremist beliefs, and disinformation; intentionally addict them; degrade their mental health and well-being; and delay critical physical skills like hand-eye coordination all while creating a permanent public record of personal information that can be accessed by anyone.
Worst of all? Silicon Valley knows exactly what they are doing (because $$$) and they will keep doing it until millions of concerned people working together fight back. Thats where you come in!
