--Job Description--
ABOUT THE JOB
The ACLU seeks a full-time position of Staff Attorney or Senior Staff Attorney in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,?Queer & HIV Project of the ACLU’s national office in New York, NY.

Through the LGBTQ & HIV Project, founded in 1986, the ACLU seeks to create a just society for all LGBTQ people and people living with HIV regardless of race or income. Through litigation, lobbying, public education, and organizing, we work to build a country where our communities can live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association. The ACLU has been a leading advocate for LGBTQ rights for decades, having brought its first gay rights case in 1936, its first transgender rights case in 1967, and having served as counsel in seven of the past nine United States Supreme Court cases involving LGBTQ-related issues. Our advocacy strategies are built around the idea that fighting for civil rights means not just persuading judges but ultimately changing the way people think about us and our issues.

Today, the ACLU and its 50+ state affiliate offices do more litigation, policy advocacy, legislative lobbying, ballot campaigns, and public education work on LGBTQ issues than any other national civil rights organization. We currently are prioritizing our work for transgender justice in particular. Doing this work as part of the broad civil liberties agenda of the ACLU reflects the reality that the LGBTQ and HIV communities are part of other social change movements and that we must work together if we are to achieve a just society for all. The ACLU strives to ensure that the full diversity of the LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities is reflected in its work and continues to explore ways to make our efforts more impactful for disabled people, people of color, people living in poverty, and others who have been historically excluded by our movements.

Reporting to the Deputy Project Director, the Staff Attorney or Senior Staff Attorney will be responsible for creating and implementing multi-pronged strategies using litigation, legislative and policy advocacy, and public education to further the ACLU’s strategic plans.

Fall 2023 Marvin M. Karpatkin Fellowship, Racial Justice Program @ American Civil Liberties Union, IncTue, 28 Jun 22 17:24:24 +0000http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=12101http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=12101Organization Name: American Civil Liberties Union, Inc
Job Post Date: 28 Jun 2022
Job Terms: Full Time

Job Description

--Job Description--
ABOUT THE JOB
The ACLU seeks applicants for the?Karpatkin Fellowship, a full-time, now two-year fellowship in the?Racial Justice Program?of the ACLU’s National office in?New York, NY.

The Racial Justice Program (RJP) is part of the ACLU’s Trone Center for Justice and Equality, which works to combat racial discrimination; to ensure that our criminal justice system is fair, and free of racial bias; to advocate for humane and constitutional conditions of confinement; and to abolish the death penalty as a legitimate form of punishment. The Trone Center for Justice and Equality also includes the Criminal Law Reform Project, Capital Punishment Project, and the National Prison Project.

RJP works on a broad range of racial justice issues, particularly in the areas of criminal justice, education and economic justice. In the area of criminal justice, we are dedicated to reducing the unwarranted and disproportionate targeting, arrest and incarceration of people of color, as well as eliminating barriers to reentry after contact with the criminal legal system. Our economic justice work focuses on eliminating barriers to fair borrowing and eliminating policies and practices that criminalize poverty – particularly the jailing of people for their inability to pay court fines and fees. In the area of education, we advocate against the racially disproportionate use of police and school discipline among students of color. Working with colleagues across the ACLU, we work to prevent algorithmic discrimination by both state and private actors. Our robust Indigenous Justice practice advances principles of tribal sovereignty through both litigat ion and advocacy in such issues as land and water rights and education.

During the fellowship, fellows have opportunities to work with colleagues in the ACLU’s 53 affiliates and chapters in every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. They are invited to receive mentorship from senior ACLU staff attorneys, to attend specialized trainings focused on improving substantive legal skills and strategic decision-making for legal work, and to collaborate with others across the legal department through internal community building convenings. Past fellows have gone on to play important roles in civil rights and civil liberties work at the ACLU, in other leading social justice organizations, in the judiciary, in academia and in government.

The Karpatkin Fellowship was established by the ACLU Board of Directors in memory of Marvin M. Karpatkin, the late General Counsel of the American Civil Liberties Union, who died in January 1975, at the age of 48. Mr. Karpatkin was one of the ACLU's most active attorneys during the 1960s and early 1970s. He left his special mark in the areas of selective service and military law. His interest in those areas grew out of his own strong opposition to the Vietnam War and his desire to help those who, younger than himself, were faced with performing military service in a war they would not support.

Reporting to the?Deputy Project Director,?the?Karpatkin Fellow?will be a core member of a collaborative, dedicated team working to advance the ACLU’s racial justice work.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until?September 6, 2022.
