About Alliance for Justice

AFJ has two distinct but complementary programs. Our Justice Program focuses on ensuring that the federal judiciary advances core constitutional values, preserves human rights and unfettered access to the courts, and adheres to the even-handed administration of justice for all. Our Bolder Advocacy (BA) Program works with nonprofits and foundations to help them navigate the rules surrounding 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) and PAC rules so they can be more courageous in their advocacy.

This position is for our Bolder Advocacy Program.
