Texas Equal Access Fund (TEA Fund), Frontera Fund, and Lilith Fund (the hiring organizations) are seeking a temporary, contracted Legislative Coordinator to work an estimated 32-40 hours per week and serve as coordinator and lobbyist for the hiring organizations during the 2023 Texas Legislative Session. The Coordinator will support the hiring organizations and the Rosie’s Law Coalition. The Coordinator will interact directly with state legislative offices and stakeholders, focusing on advancing the interests of Texas abortion funds and also securing legislative support for Rosie’s Law, a bill to restore public and private insurance coverage of abortion care.
