Job Description

The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska is looking for an experienced and ambitious litigator as our full-time Senior Staff Attorney to focus on cutting-edge, constitutional impact litigation. You’ll be responsible for litigating every step of your docket of complex cases, from initial client contact to final resolution at trial or appeal, and will report to the Legal Director as an integral member of our team’s mission to expand and defend civil liberties throughout Alaska and beyond.

Who we are

The ACLU of Alaska is the Alaska affiliate of the national ACLU, the nation’s oldest and largest protector of the Bill of Rights. We are Alaska’s premier civil rights and civil liberties advocate, and are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that integrates litigation, public policy advocacy, public education, communications with the media and our members, and coalition building and grassroots organizing to defend and expand Alaskans’ constitutional rights and individual freedoms. As part of the ACLU of Alaska’s 50th anniversary, we’re embarking on our most ambitious advocacy yet, which includes eliminating discrimination against LGBTQ individuals, dramatically reforming the criminal justice system, paring back the national security state and strengthening the right to privacy, ensuring that all Americans can freely and easily vote, and defeating perennial attempts to restrict women’s right to safe and legal abortions.

Your responsibilities

  • Represent the ACLU of Alaska and its clients in all aspects of complex impact litigation, including factual and legal research, discovery, motion practice, trials, appeals, and amicus briefs;
  • In concert with the Legal Director, proactively seek out and creatively implement a strategic impact litigation program that advances key civil liberties by persuading state and federal courts, administrative tribunals, and regulatory agencies to recognize new or established legal principles;
  • Proactively identify litigation opportunities, and, in consultation with the Executive Director and Legal Director, select direct-representation and amicus cases for the ACLU of Alaska;
  • Develop and maintain relationships with partner organizations, public interest law firms, legal service agencies, and other members of the Alaska legal community;
  • Recruit, train, and coordinate volunteer attorneys’ work on ACLU of Alaska cases.
  • Serve as a spokesperson for the ACLU of Alaska, with the Communications, Legal, and Executive Directors;
  • Work with fellow ACLU of Alaska staff to integrate litigation with policy advocacy, communications and public education, and philanthropy; and
  • Work with the Executive and Legal Directors and Director of Philanthropy to participate in budget, donor, and planning meetings as needed.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate has:

  • Law degree and a license to practice law in Alaska or the ability to be admitted by reciprocity or passing the next bar exam;
  • At least five years’ experience litigating complex civil trials and appeals in federal and state courts;
  • Ability to work across the political spectrum with grasstops and diverse coalitions, including developing shared plans, and navigating internal political dynamics among partner groups;
  • Exceptional initiative, vision, and ambition to build a vibrant, integrated litigation program through short- and long-term integrated strategies;
  • Passion for, and a well-articulated knowledge of, civil liberties and social justice, and a familiarity with the work and mission of the ACLU;
  • Exceptional analytical, research, writing, and oral advocacy skills, as well as the ability to articulate legal concepts and complex issues and to communicate them tactfully and effectively to a variety of audiences;
  • Ability to edit the work of oneself and others with a collegial spirit to correct grammar and sharpen prose;
  • Experience working with other staff and leading teams by listening, guiding, and supporting colleagues to achieve common goals;
  • Keen attention to detail; ability to work simultaneously with initiative on multiple projects at various stages of completion; good problem-solving and collaboration skills; a positive, professional attitude with sound judgment, flexibility, determination, and good humor in a fast-paced, sometimes high-pressure office;
  • An absolute commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards;
  • Willingness to work beyond 9 to 5 and to travel throughout Alaska as needed; and
  • Fluency with computers, Microsoft Office, and Westlaw.

Compensation

This is an exempt, full-time, at-will position. The salary range is $70,000 to $85,000 and includes excellent benefits, including health, dental, disability, and life insurance, a 401(k) plan with an employer-match, and generous vacation, sick, and holiday leave. The ACLU of Alaska also offers a stipend to help defray moving costs where appropriate.

How to apply

If this seems like you, please email PDFs of your

  • résumé;
  • a professional writing sample that has not been substantially edited by others;
  • three professional references; and
  • a letter describing why you think you’d be great at this job

to jobs@acluak.org with the subject “Senior Staff Attorney.” Please state in your letter how you learned of this position.

To be assured of consideration for the position, interested applicants should apply before 4:30 p.m. on September 20, 2021. Applications received after that date will be considered if the position remains available.

Job Description

The Client

Since 1941, the Planning Council (TPC) has been a leader in transforming ideas and dreams – supplemented by good information and data – into reality. Through consulting, creative partnerships, diligent research, and expert planning, TPC delivers comprehensive solutions and services to communities, organizations, and individuals in Southeastern Virginia, Western Tidewater, Virginia and Maryland Eastern Shore, Northeastern North Carolina, Northern Virginia, and the District of Columbia. For more than 80 years, TPC has been improving quality of life and building stronger communities.

 

TPC’s expertise in community needs assessments, research and evaluation, and strategic planning has resulted in expanded access to affordable healthcare, the formation of model programs for senior care and childcare, expansion of mental and behavioral health services, and the establishment of a regional foodbank. In partnership with local governments and businesses, nonprofit agencies, and the faith-based community, TPC works for the betterment of the most vulnerable populations.

 

Supplementing its core convening, planning, and assessment work, TPC also administers and executes contracts with government agencies, public authorities, and private foundations. Last year, TPC administered $8.2 million in federal and state funds to provide healthy daycare meals to 205,288 children. Through the U.S. Navy Respite Care Program, they coordinated in-home respite care for 465 active-duty military families with children.

 

In addition to facilitating $7 million for HUD-funded programs and serving as the regional administrator of the Continuum of Care (CoC), last year, TPC coordinated nearly $16 million of emergency funding for homeless services across Southeastern Virginia. As the lead agency for the CoC, TPC is responsible for managing the local Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a HUD-mandated data collection and reporting system.

 

Headquartered in Norfolk, The Planning Council is governed by a 23-person Board of Directors and operates with a $13 million annual budget and 38 staff.

Mission, Vision and Values

The Planning Council envisions a community where all members contribute to a successful today and an extraordinary tomorrow. Their mission is to identify community needs, connect people with solutions, and improve lives. The organization’s core values are grounded in a passion for equity, opportunity, and dignity for all. Key characteristics driving TPC’s success are commitments to continuous learning, empathy, curiosity, equity, meaningful relationships, quality products and finding solutions.

 

The Opportunity

This is an extraordinary opportunity for a transformational leader to craft a radically progressive strategy to create and enhance supportive programs for diverse communities. Pervasive and growing inequities that have increased demands on human service providers, have also created space for innovative planning and management.

With increased institutional and government investment in community-based organizations, the opportunity for a visionary leader to leverage TPC’s expertise to inform the expansion of services and facilitate connections has never been greater. 

 

The Position

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer will evaluate the organization’s programs, assess community needs, and develop a strategic vision for TPC to effectively support the region’s entire population. The CEO will represent the agency across the region developing and maintaining effective relationships with elected and government officials, and nonprofit, business, and community leaders.

  • Evaluate the agency’s programs, core competencies, human and fiscal resources; adapt and enhance as needed to increase impact.

 

Leadership

  • Inspire, motivate, and lead a team of diverse, talented and dedicated staff through a period of community assessment, program evaluation, and goal and outcome setting;
  • Lead by example to foster a culture of inclusion, transparency and accountability and ensure organizational cohesion;
  • Recruit, retain, and develop a competent, diverse and qualified team to manage programs, contracts, compliance, and fiscal functions;
  • Leverage the expertise of diverse community contacts, and institutional knowledge of the board; partner with and engage them in process of change management by providing timely updates, critical information, and analysis.

 

Fundraising and Fiscal Management

  • Review the existing business model, identify opportunities to increase efficiencies and diversify revenue streams;
  • Lead business development efforts to expand partnerships and secure new contracts;
  • Manage the development of budgets and related program and staffing plans that support the organization’s updated strategic goals;
  • Ensure adequate resources to build internal operational capacity, to apply technological solutions in meeting human service needs, and to deliver actionable data to providers in the community and region.

 

Community Engagement

  • Serve as the organization’s primary spokesperson representing TPC in public, in the media, and at community, regional and state events;
  • Manage effective relationships with business, government, and nonprofit leaders across TPC’s entire service area;
  • Establish strong partnerships built on a foundation of equity, trust, reliability, and open communication;
  • Convene diverse leaders, partners, and influencers to brainstorm ideas, align strategies, and deliver access to funding;
  • Foster diverse collaborations to identify needs, mobilize resources, and positively impact communities.

  • Manage effective marketing to ensure cohesive messaging and consistent branding internally.

 

Professional Requirements

The Planning Council is seeking an entrepreneurial change agent with extensive strategic and business planning experience. The successful candidate will have a deep understanding of the critical role that planning plays in developing healthy, thriving communities and a deep appreciation for the importance of rigorous data collection and analysis in the creation and enhancement of human services. The new CEO will have the following:

 

  • Executive or senior leadership experience with a human service agency, regional planning entity or consulting organization. Nonprofit CEO experience is ideal;
  • Demonstrated ability to relate to individuals of diverse racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation, generational, and socioeconomic backgrounds;
  • Change management experience including a track-record of success in leading organizational assessments and transformations;
  • Expertise creating and implementing strategic plans, including experience developing business and staffing plans to advance strategic goals;
  • Prior experience developing, refining, and positioning brands, including an understanding of marketing principles;

Reimbursement toward basic relocation expenses will be considered for the exceptional individual they are seeking.

 

Location

Located in Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina, where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, the historically rich region of coastal Virginia is influenced by vast shipping and fishing industries. Home to the world’s largest naval base and several universities, the region includes the Virginia Stage Company, Virginia Symphony, Norfolk Botanical Garden, the Virginia Zoo, and Chrysler Art Museum. Southeastern Virginia encompasses seven cities including Norfolk, Newport News and Virginia Beach offering a variety of urban, suburban and waterfront communities. Long, warm summers and mild winters provide ample time for residents to enjoy waterside festivals, fishing, biking, and boating. With an abundance of fresh seafood, vibrant arts and entertainment scene, easy access to white sand beaches and an enduring sense of Southern Hospitality it’s no wonder four Southeastern Virginia cities, including Norfolk, made WalletHub’s list "2018 Happiest Places to Live."

 

The city of Norfolk, home to The Planning Council, is one of the nation’s fastest-growing ports, a destination for world-class cuisine and the center of a thriving arts community. The city has a population of 245,000 and a median home price of $207,000.

 

With below average crime and high-performing schools, it’s easy to see why Travel+Leisure named Norfolk  "Favorite American City for 2018."

  • Center the voices and perspectives of LGBTQ youth impacted by harmful systems.
  • Work closely with NCLR’s family law team to oppose expansion of the child welfare system, develop LGBTQ support for the transformation of this system, and raise awareness about LGBTQ families of origin impacted by this system.

The goal of this work is to utilize messaging research and community organizing to increase awareness and acceptance of gender diversity, and to empower BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender diverse community members and leaders as change agents within and beyond their own communities.

Position Summary

Pride Foundation seeks a community-oriented and deeply embedded leader to lead our public education, research, and advocacy program, TRANSformCulture. Our next Director of Community Advocacy, Education, & Research (DCAER) will bring a strong background in working with and building meaningful relationships within BIPOC, Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex and gender diverse communities, have strong skills in research design and implementation, and a thorough understanding of what it takes to change systems and transform culture to truly keep our communities safe.  The DCAER is a critical member of our leadership team, and is responsible for designing and implementing the breadth of TRANSformCulture’s work. 

The DCAER reports to the CEO, serves on Pride Foundation’s Leadership Team, and leads the Village Council—a 25-person community advisory committee consisting of change agents from across the 5-State region. This is a full time, exempt position. Flexibility to work some evenings, weekends, and occasionally travel are necessary. This position is currently remote, and candidates should live in, or be willing to relocate to, one of the five Northwest states Pride Foundation serves. Staff members in the greater Puget Sound region will have the option to work out of our headquarters office in Seattle in the future once conditions of the pandemic make in-person work safe again.

Primary Responsibilities

The DCAER will lead all aspects of this work, from developing and maintaining community relationships, outreach, and engagement, to co-designing and implementing the story collection, analysis, and research with the Village Council. The DCAER will also be responsible for coordinating the dissemination and use of this research with community groups and organizations, collecting feedback on effectiveness and community needs, and designing future projects based on what is learned. It is critical that this work be grounded in a research and data justice framework, and also requires the DCAER to bring a strong, intersectional, racial, and gender justice analysis to this work.
