Public Policy Director - Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault
The Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA) provides leadership, advocacy, and support to address and prevent sexual violence. CCASA was founded in 1984 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit to be the collective voice of rape crisis advocates across the state of Colorado. As a statewide coalition, CCASA supports our members, partners, and the broader community through technical assistance, training, information and referrals, educational materials, statewide systems change, and public policy education and advocacy.
The Public Policy Director develops and implements CCASA’s public policy agenda, both statewide and nationally; educates CCASA members, decision makers, and the public about public policy issues; and serves as a representative of CCASA with elected and government officials, stakeholders, and statewide and national groups.
This position requires occasional statewide and national travel. Due to the nature of the work, which requires a frequent presence at the State Capitol, this position is based in Denver. CCASA has a flexible workplace policy that allows for telecommuting when job duties do not require an in-person presence.
Starting Salary: $70,000 – $72,000 annually DOE
