Job Description

The Editor & Writer will spearhead creating RDI’s public-facing work, which will include writing & ghost-writing opinion pieces, video scripts, and other educational materials to support RDI’s mission.

The Renew Democracy Initiative (RDI) is dedicated to pulling American democracy back from the brink and restoring its place as a beacon for global freedom.

Founded by a diverse, cross-partisan group of leaders, including former world chess champion Garry Kasparov, Senators Heidi Heitkamp and Bob Kerrey, and Pulitzer Prize winners Anne Applebaum and Bret Stephens, we are committed to combating the threats of far-right and far-left radicalism. With autocratic movements growing in strength around the globe, we must make a stand in defense of liberal democracy in the US. American leadership is paramount to guiding the free world through its current political, economic, and health crises.
