The New York Abortion Access Fund is proud to fund abortions as part of the fight for reproductive justice for New Yorkers and for all–and we want you to join us! NYAAF is seeking new additions to its all-volunteer Board of Directors.
We are soliciting applications for specific Board roles as well as “at-large” Board Members. No prior board experience is necessary; the main requirements are a commitment to our mission and values, leadership skills or potential, excellent interpersonal skills, and enthusiasm for working as a team. We expect applicants to be able to attend monthly board meetings (virtually or in person), and encourage a commitment of 2+ years of service on the Board.
We seek diversity in identity, perspective, and experience, including diversity in race, ethnicity, age, economic status, educational experience, status as a parent, ability, sexuality, gender identity, national origin, religious perspective, professional and career experience, and in accessing healthcare. We also hope to create leadership opportunities for those who have historically been excluded from the reproductive rights movement, including people of color, trans and gender-nonconforming people, young people (18-25), and those who have experienced difficulty in accessing necessary healthcare.
For more detailed information, please read our Call for Board Members. The Application can be emailed to us along with a resumé or list of relevant experience. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2016. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
