Communications Coordinator - Community Action For Preventing Extremism

All Together Now

All Together Now aims to prevent racism by promoting racial equality through education. We are the only national charity dedicated to preventing all forms of racism in Australia.

All Together Now’s ground-breaking Community Action for Preventing Extremism (CAPE) project was established in 2012 to plant a seed of doubt in the minds of young men who were attracted to white supremacy. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and remains the only project of its kind in Australia. The project’s focus in NSW over the next four years will be to interact directly with white nationalists online to challenge their beliefs, and to establish and support a volunteer youth network that will challenge white nationalist activity across the state.

The Communications Coordinator is responsible for managing the project’s communications including social media engagement, online advertising and media enquiries. S/he reports to the Project Manager and works two days per week in the first year, and one day per week from the second year.

  1. Coordinate online advertising and corresponding budget in relation to this project.
  2. Coordinate social media broadcasts for the project, in line with All Together Now’s social media strategy.
  3. Create alternative narratives and engage in respectful online discussion on our social media pages.
  4. Support youth network members to develop alternative narratives.
  5. Support the Project Manager to develop the NSW online forum.
  6. Regularly monitor analytics for mainstream media, advertising, website visitors and social media and make adjustments to the various tactics where necessary.
  7. Assist in monitoring and evaluation of the project
