Each year, the office serves approximately 20,000 people. Over 70% of our clients are Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC).

We are interested in identifying underrepresented individuals who believe in our Theory of Change: “When we fiercely defend individuals, confront state sponsored violence, and advocate for community power, then our communities are better able to resist and fight for self-determination and freedom”—to join our team. 
Individuals who wish to express an interest in this position are encouraged to follow the steps described below. This invitation will remain open until a sufficient pool has been attained. The earliest it may close is September 30, 2021.
