About the Role

In 2022, The Humane League launched the Animal Policy Alliance (APA), a national network of state and local animal protection and food policy advocacy groups in the US that include animals raised for food among their legislative priorities. The mission of the APA is to unite to end large scale animal cruelty through policy change. To help accomplish this mission, THL’s Public Policy team works to facilitate the sharing of resources and best practices, provide trainings, develop and coordinate strategies for public policy campaigns, and provide the capacity building and support necessary for those strategies to succeed.

As the Policy Advisor, you will be accountable for conducting state and local-level policy research, supporting the coordination of member groups on impactful public policy campaigns and lobbying strategies at the state and local level, and interfacing with animal protection groups regarding research needs. Because the APA is a relatively new program and the Public Policy team is small, this role requires a high level of flexibility and comfort with change and uncertainty. This position reports directly to the Senior Policy Counsel.

This is a full-time, remote position. This position requires domestic travel; this is equivalent to approximately 2 week-long trips per year.

We are only able to consider applicants who reside in the United States and possess United States work authorization.

About the Organisation

The Humane League (THL) is a global nonprofit ending the abuse of animals raised for food. THL fosters a high-energy culture of teamwork and mission-driven problem solving, and we have earned recognition as Top Charity from Animal Charity Evaluators for all of their rating periods. Over the past few years, we’ve grown to a staff of 100+ talented individuals dispersed across the country and around the world. At THL, how animals are treated in the food system is at the forefront of our everyday work. As such, many of our staff are vegan by personal choice, and all of our THL-hosted events offer fully vegan menus. We welcome all mission-aligned candidates to apply, no matter where you are in your journey to end the abuse of animals raised for food.
