Appointed as Content and Research Manager, National Immigration Law Center
The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is the primary national organization in the United States exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants. Over the past 35 years, NILC has won landmark legal decisions protecting fundamental human and civil rights, thwarted policies that would have damaged low-income immigrant families’ opportunities, and advanced major policies that reinforce our nation’s values of equality and justice for all.
As part of the communications team, the Content and Research Manager will be charged with investigating and developing highly sharable content for our website, social media platforms, and advocacy work. Using individual contacts developed through NILC’s policy and litigation efforts, the ACLS Public Fellow will develop narratives that shine a nuanced light on the issues that particularly impact low-income immigrants and their families, including access to education, immigration enforcement, racial profiling, economic security, and access to health care. The Content and Research Manager will also be responsible for developing a comprehensive media research plan to produce a pro-migrant narrative that supports NILC’s work.
