The California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC) is a non-partisan, non-profit statewide organization founded in response to the 1996 passage of federal immigrant and welfare laws that profoundly affected immigrants. CIPC helps to develop and support pro-immigrant public policy that aims at improving the quality of life for all Californians. CIPC also provides technical assistance, training and education on immigrant issues.
The Senior Health and Public Benefits (H&PB) position is responsible for spearheading CIPC’s health equity and public benefits access for low-income immigrant and refugee communities. As part of this work, this position will drive CIPC’s legal and legislative strategy and assess the impact of federal and state legislative and regulatory developments on immigrant communities and their families. The position will oversee health and public benefits campaign work including expanding Medi-Cal for responding to federal regulatory changes.
The Senior Health & Public Benefits position will work closely with the Government Affairs Department to develop legislative, budget and administrative advocacy strategy. Also, this position will support the Health Policy Manager and Health & Public Benefits Campaign Coordinator in their critical work tracking CIPC’s budget and legislative priorities, as well as managing CIPC’s leadership on issues pertaining to immigrant health and benefits within coalition spaces and among other partners. The position also supervises the Health Policy Manager.
We prefer the position to be based in Los Angeles. Travel to CIPC’s offices in Sacramento and Oakland is necessary.
