NPNA is looking for a serious policy expert and leader to develop and implement NPNA and its members’ immigrant integration policy priorities and policy campaign strategy.
The Policy Director, under the supervision of the Executive Director and Chief of Staff, will lead the research and development of policy and legislative proposals on immigrant and refugee integration. The Policy Director will work with NPNA members and national policy partners to deepen our NPNA “New American Dreams” Policy Platform; to support local and state level campaigns to implement specific parts of it; and to support our national policy and legislative advocacy. The Policy Director will also oversee the NPNA’s work with local, state level, and federal agencies and Congress on a range of legislative and administrative policy issues.
Current policy priorities include the “New American Dreams” overarching policy framework, with planks on citizenship, English, education, economy, legal services, welcoming communities, and health; the “Full Citizenship” campaign, to promote naturalization and civic engagement, and to break down barriers and suppression of immigrant voter engagement; the “We Are All America” campaign in support of refugees and asylum seekers; and the “Transatlantic Migrant Democracy Dialogue”, which works with refugee and migrant leaders in Europe on shared approaches to strengthening migrant civic engagement and democratic participation.
