Attorney – Immigration Justice
The Immigrant Justice Program seeks to hire an Attorney in our Falls Church office. Working on an interdisciplinary team, the attorney will work closely with organizers, families, community members, local, state, and national-level partners, and other LAJC advocates to advance systemic change in immigrants’ rights in Virginia through a combination of individual representation, impact litigation, community outreach, organizing, and policy advocacy. This position will maintain legal practice that initially will focus on removal defense and later take on impact and affirmative case work; it also could incorporate cross-program legal matters as needed. While the work in this position will exist on a statewide level, the Attorney is expected to build community and focus organizing and advocacy efforts locally, beginning with a focus in Alexandria and the surrounding areas.
