Topic: Over the next three years, as part of the ACLU’s national Smart Justice Campaign, the ACLU of Arizona will work with state-based partners to engage in an ambitious campaign to substantially reduce the state’s incarcerated population, while also keeping communities safe, treating people fairly, and using fiscal resources wisely. The ACLU of Arizona is seeking fellowship applicants, for a one- or two-year fellowship to begin in fall 2018, to focus on building and executing strategic impact litigation to complement its ramped-up policy and advocacy efforts aimed at reducing jail and prison populations by 50 percent and reducing racial disparities in the criminal justice system. Applicants for a sponsored fellowship such as Skadden, Equal Justice Works, or a similar public interest fellowship are encouraged to apply. Internal funding may also be available. The position will be located in the ACLU of Arizona’s Phoenix office.
