Resource-Building Storyteller & Educator
SQSH’s Resource-Building Storyteller & Educator works to actualize SQSH’s mission of building our community’s capacity for storytelling, education, and advocacy, while building political buy-in and resource investment from donors, partners, allies, and institutional stakeholders. This outward-facing position is responsible for managing SQSH’s fundraising, press/media interactions, client courses (including allyship trainings), and storytelling programs. They ensure that SQSH’s community presence and institutional interactions are robust, impactful, and aligned with our collective liberation values.
This is a highly external-facing role that requires a passion for building relationships, patience with people on different parts of their political journeys, ability to speak compellingly about movement and organizational goals, willingness to be vulnerable and share openly about their lived experiences and political values in front of various audiences, and a knack for creating safe spaces where others feel comfortable opening up.
A successful fundraising organizer is able to mobilize our staff team to collectively grow our organizational resources. A successful candidate understands how to tell and facilitate compelling stories, manage varied relationships, lead community-centric fundraising efforts, identify connections between different social justice movements, and articulate why we should all care about queer liberation.
