Secular Student Alliance Seeks Communications Associate


The Secular Student Alliance is changing the world, one secular student at a time. We are looking for a social media savvy person who takes pride in their superior organizational skills, ability to get along with people, and has a drive to amplify the voices of secular students to join our team as our new Communications Associate.

These communications advance SSA’s mission and inform others about the activities of the SSA’s affiliate groups and individual student activists.

Duties will include writing content for the SSA's website, editing email newsletters, and managing social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. YouTube proficiency and having multi-media and/or video editing skills are a huge plus.

The Communications Associate will be an essential part of our team at our national offices in Columbus, Ohio. The Director of Communications is based in Washington, DC, so working well with a remote manager is a necessity. While this position reports to the Director of Communications, much of the the position involves working directly with other SSA staff to complete projects. Demonstrated ability to execute projects in a timely and independent manner is required.

Secular Student Alliance Laments Supreme Court Ruling to Permit For-Profit Employers to Deny Employees Contraceptive Health Care Coverage Ruling will Negatively Affect Students Who Remain on The Insurance Plans of Parent or Who Themselves Work for Companies Who Claim the Exception to the Affordable Care Act Contraceptive Coverage Mandate 

COLUMBUS, OH – The Secular Student Alliance is distressed by the ruling which will allow employers to deny workers contraceptive coverage based on the religious bent of the owners of a company.

In the 5-4 Burwell v. Hobby decision, the Roberts court ruled that a closely held company may not be made to cover reproductive care that is considered in violation of the religious beliefs of the owner(s) of the company. 

This ruling will potentially eliminate millions of women from having safe and reliable contraceptive health care included in their employer-covered plans.  A major benefit to students under the Affordable Care Act is that a person enrolled in college may remain on a parent's health care plan until age 26.  However, denying contraceptive care to women during the years in which they are most likely to conceive seriously diminishes the benefit of the increased age limit under the ACA.
