The ACLU seeks a full-time position of Legal Fellow 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 Racial Justice Program seeks to sponsor a Legal Fellow to develop a project that advances our campaign to fight the over criminalization of people of color. Possible projects may include challenges to housing, employment, or credit restrictions based on criminal history or to court fines and fees that disproportionately penalize low-income people of color. We will review applications on a rolling basis, but priority consideration will be given to those who submit applications by July 24,2020
