The American Civil Liberties Union's (ACLU) Immigrants' Rights Project is launching a unique nationwide campaign of litigation, advocacy and public education to fight against state laws aimed at harming immigrants. As a part of this nationwide effort, the ACLU is looking to fill the position of Regional Advocacy & Policy Strategist in either St. Louis, Kansas City or Atlanta.
As a part of the national team, the Regional Advocacy Strategist will work at the state-level with affiliates to design multi-faceted advocacy campaigns, focusing on strategic alliance formation, public engagement, coalition building, and mobilization of supporters and impacted communities to advance immigrants’ rights. Experience working on state and legislative campaigns or ballot or electoral work is ideal.
The ACLU is committed to multi-pronged efforts to defeat misdirected anti-immigrant laws. Dedicated to expanding and enforcing the civil liberties and civil rights of non-citizens and to combating public and private discrimination against immigrants, the Immigrants’ Rights Project has been at the forefront of almost every major legal struggle on behalf of immigrants’ rights through class action lawsuits, law reform litigation, judicial rulings and legal advocacy. This new interdisciplinary team, based in regions where the civil liberties threats to immigrants are especially dire, will capitalize on the expertise of staff focused on litigation, communications, advocacy, and alliance and coalition building.
