The New York City Public Advocate – New York, NY
The Public Advocate for the City of New York is a citywide elected official who serves as a direct link between the electorate and city government, effectively acting as an ombudsman, or “watchdog,” for New Yorkers by providing oversight of city agencies, investigating citizens’ complaints about city services and making legislative or policy proposals to address perceived shortcomings of those services. The Public Advocate presides over New York City Council stated meetings and is a non-voting member of the Council with the right to introduce and co-sponsor legislation.
The Outreach Department is responsible for tracking the needs of the diverse communities throughout New York City, and engaging with those communities with the goal of advancing the priorities of the New York City Public Advocate. The LGBT/Outreach coordinator is responsible for conducting research, and developing relationships with LGBT community and their leaders, addressing their needs, developing trust, and creating pathways between organizations and the NYC Public Advocate. The Outreach department is a fast-paced institution that requires evening and weekend availability; therefore, the LGBT/Outreach coordinator would be expected to operate under such conditions.
