The New York office of Drug Policy Alliance is hiring a Communications Assistant, reporting to the Director of the Communications, Tony Newman, and the Deputy Director of Communications, Elizabeth Mendez Berry. The Communications Assistant will assist the Communications Department in the development and execution of strategic media campaigns on a variety of issues related to drug policy reform. The position begins in August 2004.

Duties will include updating and maintaining an extensive media database of journalists interested in drug policy reform; creating targeted press lists based on specific media campaigns; organizing and tracking media clips generated by or about the Drug Policy Alliance; helping coordinate press conferences, teleconferences, and other media-related events; assisting with pitching reporters by phone to get them interested in particular stories; assisting with writing and editing press releases; and overseeing communications interns.

The Communications Assistant must be very organized, energetic and interested in both media and drug policy reform. Though much of the job is administrative, there is tremendous opportunity to learn how to write and edit press materials, pitch reporters, and participate in strategy.

To apply, please fax a cover letter and resume to Natasha Duncan at (212) 613-8022 or e-mail [email protected] by July 30, 2004. No phone calls please. Salary based on experience. Visit http://www.drugpolicy.org for more information about the Drug Policy Alliance.
