Who We Are
Center for Intimacy Justice (CIJ) is a nonprofit startup currently working toward tech policies of advertising equality: to allow ads for women’s health and people of diverse genders, which are systematically censored today. Today, ads for health of people with vulvas (e.g. for menopause, pelvic pain, and more) are rejected by tech platforms, misclassified as “adult products.” This censorship is applied in ways that discriminate based on gender and other lenses – which holds back women and nonbinary entrepreneurs in particular, and blocks access to valuable and needed health information. CIJ is working to change this – engaging in media, legal, and policy strategies, from investigative evidence building, to advocacy and PR campaigns, to working with government agencies, and more.
As recent highlights:
- CIJ published a report, released in The New York Times and covered in 70+ press outlets, revealing our investigation findings about Meta platforms (Facebook and Instagram) systemically rejecting ads for 100% of the businesses we studied that serve women and people with vulvas.
- Citing and acting on CIJ’s report, The Chair of the US Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee, Senator Patty Murray, wrote an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg at Meta/Facebook demanding answers to questions, including what actions Meta/Facebook is taking in response to CIJ’s report.
- Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted about Meta’s inequitable censorship of women’s health, to Senator Patty Murray. The tweets increased pressure on Meta, and Clinton wrote that she knew Senator Murray would “keep on them.”
- There are now exciting government enforcement actions in the works, prompted by our January report. We are educating a number of state Attorney General offices we’ve identified, and the Federal Trade Commission, to call for action.
CIJ is looking for an initiative-taking, organized, strategic Partnerships Manager to execute a key next stage of CIJ’s partnerships. CIJ has built strong credibility and relationships with a number of women’s health businesses and organizations, and others, who see our work as highly valuable to the field and are excited for our next steps. We are working to channel the partnership, entrepreneurial abilities, and collective resources of women’s health ecosystem stakeholders into an important next stage of impact. The Partnerships Manager will execute CIJ’s new membership program and other sponsorship and partnership programs. CIJ’s new membership program is the first membership program in the women’s health field for women’s health organizations to pool financial resources together in support of advertising equality for the field – and it’s one of multiple partnership programs, along with sponsorship and others.
The Partnership Manager will both generate ideas and strategies for CIJ’s membership programs and partnerships effectively execute and operationalize those strategies (overseeing emails and using CRM systems, communicating effectively with partners, and more).
1. (60%) Membership and Resource Development:
- Support the communication and development of multiple opportunities for businesses, nonprofits and others to partner with and support CIJ’s impact, including with financial support:

- Utilize CRM software systems (CIJ uses Apollo and HubSpot) for emails and for managing CIJ’s existing database of organizations
- Create important new revenue streams for CIJ’s work to drive critical impact
2. (20%) Amplification/Activation with Partners:
- Drive group communication with businesses and organizations that seek to change this ad censorship. (CIJ has a database of hundreds of businesses and thousands of individuals who have expressed interest in our work.)
- Communicate with organizations about how they can activate and educate their audiences as CIJ launches social media campaigns and announcements (e.g. sharing opportunities for partners’ audiences to sign petitions supporting change, disseminating engaging content that partners can share, and more).
3. (20%) Other Collaboration Communications:
The Partnership Manager may:
- Support and organize execution of communications with other key CIJ stakeholders, such as US Senate Offices and Congressional subcommittees that CIJ works with, and others (e.g. support correspondence and setting up meetings).
- Exceptional interpersonal skills and interpersonal sensitivity/awareness
- Demonstrated success in business development and driving revenue generation (e.g. in sales, resource development, membership programs, or otherwise)
- Highly organized and able to prioritize and execute corresponding projects effectively
