The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights (LCCR) seeks a digital communications manager to manage and improve our online presence. The manager will be responsible for creating compelling content that helps grow our donor base and engage our supporters in advocacy efforts. Duties include strategy development, social media content creation and analytics, email marketing, online advocacy support, website management, and graphic design. This is a new position, perfect for someone who enjoys taking initiative and setting up systems. The person will collaborate with teams across the organization and will report to the Policy Director.
The position is based in New Orleans, but our staff is currently working remotely.
The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights (LCCR) is a non-profit law office that fights to keep children out of the justice system so they can thrive in their homes and communities. We both represent individual children in their court cases and address the systemic issues that trap mainly poor, Black youth in the justice system.
Juvenile Defense: As the juvenile public defender in New Orleans, our Children’s Defense Team represents over 90% of children in the city who come into contact with the juvenile justice system. We provide each child with a holistic team – a lawyer, social worker, investigator, and youth advocate – to address both the causes and consequences of an arrest.
Juvenile Life Without Parole: We represent the majority of Louisianans who are facing or serving life without parole sentences for crimes they committed as children, which the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled unconstitutional in all but the rarest cases. We know that children can and do change for the better, so we fight for their second chance.
State and Local Advocacy: We advocate for policies that reduce the number of children in the justice system and provide better alternatives to arrest and incarceration. For the kids who do enter the system, we support policies that keep them safe, protect their rights, and get them home as soon as possible.
