The Young Women’s Freedom Center is a Leadership and Advocacy organization focused on building the personal and collective power of cis and trans young women and gender non-conforming folks that have been incarcerated and experienced life on the streets. YWFC creates opportunities for young folks to find their voice, build their power, gain skills and opportunities, and to transform the conditions that keep them trapped in cycles of violence, poverty, and incarceration.
Young Women’s Freedom Center seeks a Social Media Associate to join our fierce team of directly impacted cis and trans women and young women, trans men and young men and gender-expansive leaders of color and support our social media communications. This person will report directly to the Director of Communications and partner with teams across all departments and sites to develop content plans, produce content, and plan and execute social media campaigns. This person will be in charge of community management across YWFC platforms, and report engagement stats monthly and as required post campaigns. Like all members of the Young Women’s Freedom Center team, the Social Media Associate will believe in the expertise of directly impacted people to identify and lead the change needed to support true and transformative justice.
This person will have a deep understanding of the criminal, social, and gender justice spaces across California and apply that knowledge to developing actionable and targeted communications strategies, as well as guide tactical implementation to achieve our goal of decarcerating and decriminalizing all cis and trans women and young women, trans men and young men, and gender-expansive people in California.
