SSA Launches a New Position!
My name is Jessica Kirsner, and I am the Development Associate for the Secular Student Alliance. I wanted to give you a heads up on a new crowdfunding initiative the SSA is launching!
We are looking to create a new position for the SSA called the Rapid Response Organizer (RRO): someone ready, willing, and able to provide in-person moral, strategic, and diplomatic support anywhere in the country to secular students receiving pushback from their institutions or communities. This person will also travel when secular students do particularly amazing work.
The RRO will work to mitigate negative situations (including documenting via photographs, interviews, etc.), spread the most complete facts to news media, and amplify the positive work of secular students. The RRO will also look to help groups just starting out and, based on interest, get the students plugged into the broader movement as individual activists. The RRO will be able to take advantage of the SSA’s partnership with the Freedom from Religion Foundation when diplomatic outreach to an administration fails.

Let me know if you have any questions about the Rapid Response Organizer or the SSA in general! Have an awesome day
