IowaCASA is looking for a passionate and dynamic individual with a deep understanding of advocacy and the ability to translate lessons from the field into publications. The Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI) Publications Specialist will be responsible for developing publications on the emerging issues from the SADI, such as newsletters, training curricula, and issue briefs.
