Organization: The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH)


Founded in 1994, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) builds Latina power to guarantee the fundamental human right to reproductive health, dignity and justice. We elevate Latina leaders, mobilize our families and communities, transform the cultural narrative and catalyze policy change.


NLIRH seeks a bilingual (Spanish-English) individual who is passionate about reproductive justice and immigrant rights for the full-time position of Senior Trainer within the Community Mobilization department. The Senior Trainer is primarily responsible for training grassroots leaders and activists in the reproductive justice modules and curriculum developed by the Education Manager and Associate Director of Education. The Senior Trainer will play a central planning, preparatory and facilitation role in the organization’s primary educational activities — the Latinas Organizing for Leadership & Advocacy training, Leadership Development Institute, and virtual education opportunities — which take place on a nearly monthly basis in one of the organization’s main field states (Texas, Florida, Virginia, New York and Arizona). The ideal candidate will have exemplary facilitation and organization skills, strong interpersonal and public speaking skills, and demonstrated comfort in working both independently and collaboratively. The Senior Trainer’s ability to effectively educate and engage grassroots and influential leaders is an essential aspect of NLIRH’s wider mission to transform consciousness and culture around reproductive justice in the Latinx community.
