Who We Are
Center for Intimacy Justice (CIJ) is a nonprofit whose first cornerstone program area is working to change content moderation policies that censor female sexual health and wellness information. 2022 was, largely, CIJ’s debut year in our activism in the public, and it was an incredible year for the organization:

CIJ’s Algorithm Equality Program & Position Summary
The Manager for Algorithm Equality work will lead Center for Intimacy Justice’s activities working to change content moderation practices to allow access to digital information about sexual and reproductive rights, including for people with vulvas. CIJ has had successes in changing the written policy of Meta regarding these issues. Next, opportunities include:
1. Advocating for algorithmic or technological practices to be more aligned with the revised policy, in practice, on Meta platforms
2. Researching and revealing information publicly regarding TikTok, Google, Amazon, and other important platforms’ content moderation or censorship of female sexual health and wellness information (e.g. creating report(s) on the state of the tech players on these issues)
3. Changing Meta’s policies further to allow greater inclusion of sexual health products for people with vulvas
The Manager for this program will lead and drive all activities in this area, including: investigations and research, advocacy and communications campaigns, and overall activism. The Manager will partner with stakeholders and collaborators in government, as well as with CIJ’s legal and tech policy advisors/partners, to advance change. The Manager will partner with other organizations, stakeholders, and activist partners.
The Manager will also work in tandem with other team members to expand membership and resource development.

Research and Evidence Collection (30%)
Partnerships, Membership, Fundraising (25%)

Other Information About Our Team: Prior to active new hires being made in Dec 2022 and/or early 2023, CIJ’s team has 4 employees (1 full time, 3 part-time).

This tech activism role has been filled by CIJ’s founder, since CIJ’s founding, and she will be moving into a focus on greater culture change work (writing, film, media strategy, overall strategy on this program), so we are looking for someone who can drive the work and be entrepreneurial, curious, motivated, extremely organized, effective at prioritizing, and passionate.
