Situated at the forefront of the national stage in the racial justice movement, Advancement Project is a cutting edge, no-holds-barred national organization dedicated to building local power in communities of color. Centered on a movement lawyering approach, defined as community-centered racial justice lawyering, Advancement Project supports power building in grassroots organizations working to eliminate oppressive structures in our laws and institutions and shift narratives towards transformative change.

Advancement Project impacts real change from the ground up. Building on more than 25 years of working alongside our partners, we continue to evolve our strategic thinking and creativity to imagine a more just world in which people of color can thrive, be safe, and free – and we are excited to bring on new talent to forward our vision.

Get into “good trouble” with Advancement Project.

Advancement Project works in lock-step with grassroots organizers while also impacting the national conversation on anti-racism and power building. We are the trainers’ trainer. We are movement lawyers. We are strategic communicators. And we show up with authenticity as multiracial, next generational social justice warriors.

As the late Congressman John Lewis would say, “we get into good trouble.” We encourage you to join a team of professionals committed to transformation!
