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 three Regional Staff Attorney positions in San Francisco, Phoenix, St. Louis, Kansas City or Atlanta.
As a part of the national legal staff, the Regional Staff Attorney's will work closely with ACLU affiliates on the ground in a dedicated region and will engage in litigation and advocacy challenging unconstitutional laws and practices and targeting targeting immigrants, as well as public education and training about the constitutional and civil rights of immigrants and other affected communities. The attorneys will work closely with ACLU affiliates and immigrants’ rights advocates in one of three assigned regions: the Southwest, the Midwest, or the Southeast.
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.
