Abortion Care Tennessee


Job Summary

The Executive Director of Abortion Care for Tennessee is responsible for overseeing and managing the organization’s operations, programs, and strategic direction.

*Systemic inequities in hiring have caused women, people of color, LBTQIA+ folks, and others to apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Abortion Care for Tennessee encourages you to break that statistic and apply, as no one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application.

ACT funds procedural costs for Tennesseans traveling to access abortion. We provide block grants to our partner clinics, which distribute the funds to patients.

ACT is unapologetically pro-abortion. We believe in everyone’s right to access the care they need, when and where they need it. We believe that our community is strong and together we can support the most vulnerable Tennesseans in their search for abortion care.

We celebrate bodily autonomy and the joy of helping each other access our rights.
