RAVEN is growing and we are hiring someone for our team who loves our mission and loves being a digital ninja! If you have a passion for Indigenous rights, environmental justice and innovative digital organizing, we want to hear from you. RAVEN is an affirmative action employer and gives priority to Indigenous applicants, all else being equal.
POSITION SUMMARY: Under the leadership of the Director of Engagement and Communications, the Digital Communications Coordinator applies marketing and digital communications expertise to target messages and collect metrics and data that support Raven’s core mission, which is fundraising.
RAVEN is a small but mighty registered charity with a mission to raise legal defence funds to help Indigenous Peoples in Canada defend their Aboriginal rights and title, treaty rights and the integrity of their traditional lands and cultures. We are the only non-profit charitable organization in Canada doing this work. When successful, the legal actions of our Indigenous partners set precedents for future cases, and/or advance legal rights and title of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. They may also create significant, positive environmental impacts for all Canadians by contributing to slowing climate change, maintaining biological diversity, keeping pristine landscapes intact, and/or improving or maintaining access to clean water and food security.
We believe the environmental challenges that face many Indigenous Peoples in Canada are really challenges for the entire world. Fundamentally, we believe these are issues of human rights and climate change – guided by some of the most brilliant legal advisors in the country, we work to enshrine environmental justice for all.
