POSITION: Graphic Design & Multimedia Specialist
STATUS: Full-time, permanent, exempt
Planned Parenthood Texas Votes (PPTV) is the statewide advocacy and political arm of the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas, referred to as “local Planned Parenthood organizations.” Planned Parenthood Texas Votes works to foster and preserve a social and political climate in Texas favorable to full reproductive health care access, through legislative advocacy, grassroots organizing, and electoral activity, to promote and protect the mission of local Planned Parenthood organizations in Texas.
The work at PPTV is fast-paced and deals with complex and high-priority matters related to the public policies and politics of reproductive health in Texas. Our programs range from talking to voters about the abortion access to advocating at the state legislature, organizing advocates to rally in support of reproductive rights, and training the next generation of movement leaders. We imagine a world where having a uterus is not a pre-existing condition; where people can love who they love, be who they are, and find the care they need when they need it.
PPTV’s theory of change focuses on engaging and empowering young women, women of color and LGBTQ folks. These demographics represent the majority of Planned Parenthood patients, a significant proportion of Texas’ changing population, those particularly impacted by attacks on reproductive health and rights, and who are also the least engaged and represented in elections, government and politics.
The Graphic Design & Multimedia Specialist supports the organization in its advocacy and electoral strategies in multiple formats and platforms including print, online, digital graphics and social media content. The Graphic Design & Multimedia Specialist will work closely with the Campaigns Team and the Development Team to conceptualize and create visual content that connects with our key constituencies, tells a compelling story about the organization, and inspires them to take action.
This is an exempt position. The position will require some travel within the state, particularly to Austin for events related to legislative proceedings with short notice.
