Communications Coordinator

Job Description

Position: Los Angeles or Orange County-Based Communications Coordinator (half time)

Organizational Background

Since 1996, CLUE has educated, organized, and mobilized the faith community to accompany workers and their families in their struggle for good jobs, dignity, and justice, with concerted efforts in Los Angeles and Orange County. Working closely with other advocacy groups, labor unions, religious denominations, and others, CLUE plays a unique role in the fight for economic justice by bringing a creative spiritual voice and moral authority to worker justice campaigns and those linked to economic justice—immigrant rights, affordable housing, racial justice, etc. Our collaborative efforts draw from tradition and from the moral commitments of faith leaders to shape conversation and strategy for primarily local and state efforts to transform the lives of working people.

Current Position Description

CLUE seeks a Communications Coordinator to join our team, beginning on a half-time basis (20 hours/week). The Communications Coordinator will oversee the development of all internally-produced digital and print media, as well as connecting with members of the press. This person must be responsive to a busy staff, proactively communicating with them to fill out media content and assist with their communications needs. The ultimate goal of this position is to maintain a dynamic and visible public brand thoroughly grounded in the values of faith-rooted organizing.

Position Responsibilities

Under the supervision of the Development Director, the Communications Coordinator will:

  • Develop a communications plan for the organization and specific campaigns to increase supporter engagement
  • Produce a monthly digital newsletter and periodic eblasts to supporters, including campaign updates, action requests, fundraising appeals, religious holiday messages, etc.
  • Maintain up-to-date website content
  • Coordinate daily social media postings (both original and shared content)
  • Draft and send out press releases
  • Document actions and events (photos, videos, and written descriptions)
  • Coordinate and train volunteers to document actions and events to ensure more comprehensive coverage throughout CLUE’s geographic area
  • Maintain organized online folders of photos, quotes from faith leaders, worker stories, etc.
  • Develop print media such as event flyers and invitations, organizational brochures, event signage, etc.
  • Ensure that all messaging and language is approved by campaign organizers and in line with the values of CLUE
  • Work in tandem with the Director of Development to create consistent messaging for donors and supporters


Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to economic justice and the labor movement, as well as a keen understanding of the values and methods of CLUE. They must be flexible, a motivated self-starter, and able to work independently. Applicants should be highly organized to maintain an events calendar and coordinate communications volunteers. The position also calls for excellent analytical, written and verbal communications and computer skills, as well as excellent interpersonal skills to work with a diverse team. Applicants should have familiarity and comfort with various communities of faith, as well as documented experience and strong skills in contemporary media, writing, and graphic design. Spanish fluency is helpful but not required. Must have access to a vehicle for personal transportation.

CLUE is a hybrid work environment, requiring attendance at in-person events and meetings, but much of the work in between can be done remotely. Because of required attendance at in-person actions and events, a flexible schedule is required.


Base salary for half-time position is $34,000 plus benefits.
