Communications Manager, Vaccine Equity Access Program (VEAP)

Join a national organization committed to advancing a movement to race equity and health justice.

Community Catalyst is a leading non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to advancing a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state and national advocates to leverage and build power so all people can influence decisions that affect their health. Health systems will not be accountable to people without a fully engaged and organized community voice. That’s why we work every day to ensure people’s interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and health care are made: in communities, state houses and on Capitol Hill. Learn more about our vision for the future in our five-year strategic plan.



Community Catalyst is looking for a strategic and thoughtful communications partner to develop strategy and related materials centered in race equity and health justice. Specifically, the Communications Manager’s priority will be to lead communications strategy and execution on behalf of the Vaccine Equity and Access Project (VEAP), a national program that supports community-based organizations led by and working with people of color to facilitate information about and increase access to vaccines as a part of a broader effort to reduce vaccination disparities.

The Communications Manager will also support the larger Community Catalyst communications team on various activities to ensure best practices as well as consistent voice and tone that centers the organizations commitment to race equity and health justice.
