American Civil Liberties Union Foundation
Racial Justice Program, NY
For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than a million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, national origin, record of arrest or conviction.
The Racial Justice Program of the American Civil Liberties Union National Office in New York is seeking applicants for a full-time Paralegal position.
The Racial Justice Program (RJP) attorneys and staff work 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 and jailing indigent people for the inability to pay court fines and fees. In the area of education, we seek to ensure that all children have access to quality education, regardless of race or ethnicity. Our economic justice work focuses on eliminating barriers to fair borrowing and eliminating policies and practices that criminalize poverty. Specifically, we have filed civil challenges relating to the inadequate provision of indigent criminal and juvenile defense, racial profiling and disparate educational opportunities. We have also advocated against the racially disproportionate imposition of incarceration and school discipline among people of color as well as economic policies which have a disproportionate impact on communities of color, such as predatory lending, seizure of property through unfair asset forfeiture polices and jailing indigent people because of their inability to pay court fines.
The Paralegal will be an integral part of the RJP team, will attend regular staff meetings and will have the opportunity to learn about strategies for protecting the rights of communities of color.
