Advancement Project is a multi-racial civil rights organization. Founded by a team of veteran civil rights lawyers in 1999, Advancement Project was created to develop and inspire community-based solutions based on the same high quality legal analysis and public education campaigns that produced the landmark civil rights victories of earlier eras. From Advancement Project's inception, we have worked "on-the-ground," helping organized communities of color dismantle and reform the unjust and inequitable policies that undermine the promise of democracy. Simultaneously, we have aggressively sought and seized opportunities to promote this approach to racial justice.
Advancement Project seeks a seasoned attorney and community advocate, an experienced and innovative project manager, and a creative problem solver in its Washington D.C. office to serve as Director and Senior Attorney in our Immigrant Justice Project.

The strategies and tactics of the Immigrant Justice Project are carried out within the broader goal of racial justice. The Senior Attorney will be expected to supervise staff, build relationships and work closely with partner grassroots organizations, and use a variety of legal, policy, communications, and coalition-building strategies to assist our community partners in advancing and defending immigrant rights.
