Program Associate and Program Intern Positions Available at National Network of Abortion Funds

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on January 5th, 2011

Hey QWOC+ Boston!

We’re hiring at the nonprofit I work at – the National Network of Abortion Funds – and so I’m coming to yall as a circle I’m connected with and that I think would draw strong and fun activists. I’m always diggin the energy level and vibes at QWOC+ events I’ve been at, so I’m thinking this is a great group to find a new coworker as well!

So, check out the postings below (Full time Program Associate or Part time Program Intern) and see if it vibes with you or someone you know. I appreciate it and please feel free to get at me if I can chat about the position more or answer any questions. Thanks!

Kim Nguyen – Kim (AT) FundAbortionNow.org, 617-267-7161

A sidenote plus: all the current staff at this organization identify as queer/lesbian/gay. We would like there to be more women of color at the table in social justice orgs like ours- so again, another reason for QWOC outreach!
