Get into “good trouble” with Advancement Project National Office.

Situated at the forefront of the national stage in the racial justice movement, Advancement Project National Office is a cutting edge, no-holds-barred national nonprofit whose team members are dedicated to creating free and safe communities for people of color. From ending the school-to-prison pipeline, to the fight to expand the right to vote, from calling for a complete overhaul of how we view the police and carceral state, to fighting for immigrant justice, Advancement Project National Office team members create real change from the ground up. This moment demands alignment, sharp strategic thinking and creativity to imagine a more just world in which racism no longer exists and all people of color can be free and safe – and we are excited to bring on new talent to change our world.

Under the direction of a woman of color civil rights attorney and racial justice influencer, Judith Browne Dianis, Advancement Project National Office works in lock-step with grassroots organizers as agents of change 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.

If you’re ready to fight the system of oppression with us and win, Advancement Project offers an exciting and challenging mission focused on the elimination of structural racism through multi-racial grassroots organizing focused on changing public policies; supported by lawyers and communications strategies. 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!
