Government Relations Manager

The government relations manager must have a deep knowledge of Capitol Hill and legislative processes — and an understanding that changing policy also requires getting outside the Beltway. The government relations manager will educate members of Congress and lawmakers at other government entities and their staff about Free Press’ most pressing issues. They will coordinate Free Press’ legislative outreach and lobbying efforts while tracking the rest of the team’s outreach strategy. They will also convene legislative briefings, and prepare and support Free Press staff when they testify before Congress. The government relations manager will work with our team’s campaign leads to coordinate D.C. activities with online activism, in-district meetings, constituent visits and other grassroots advocacy activities taking place outside Washington.
