We aim to strengthen the economy by advancing economic mobility in Latino communities.


Your Role:

Under the direct supervision of the Director of Public Policy, you will research, analyze, and evaluate government policies and their impact on various stakeholders by gathering data, assessing trends, and developing recommendations to improve existing or propose new ones. As a Public Policy Analyst, you will be expected to stay informed about current events, legislative changes, and social issues to provide informed insights and guidance to policymakers and decision-makers. You will also assist in advancing NALCAB’s policy priorities and advocacy efforts.

  • Closely monitor policy developments affecting NALCAB members and the populations we serve, including strategically tracking legislation, regulatory agendas, the floor schedule in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, and key congressional committee activities, including hearings and markups.
  • Engage in strategic coalition advocacy and contribute to policy analysis to promote equitable economic policies. This includes attending coalition convenings, providing NALCAB’s public policy perspective, leading and/or contributing to coalition letters, and participating in the greater public policy dialogue.
  • Assist in responding to external and internal inquiries for technical assistance from policymakers, stakeholders, subgrantees, and others, including grant support and feedback on draft bill language and initiatives.
  • Support and staff meetings with policymakers, stakeholders, and members.
  • Present NALCAB’s public policy efforts at internal and external meetings and events.
  • Serve as lead counsel on your portfolio’s assigned policy issue areas.
