The Immigrant Justice Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center primarily works to (1) fight against state practices that funnel people into the deportation machine; (2) free immigrants from detention through individual representation and systemic reform; (3) change immigration and enforcement systems so they operate fairly and sensibly; (4) enforce laws protecting migrants from mistreatment by governments or employers; and (5) support immigrant communities in the states in which we work as they demand respect for their dignity and humanity; and (6) end all forms of discrimination against immigrants, including discrimination based on immigration status or national origin.
Therefore, our Project is growing and we are seeking to add to our dedicated and talented team.
We are seeking an Outreach Paralegal who is passionate about creating justice for immigrant communities and believes in building strong teams. The Outreach Paralegal will work under the direction and supervision of SPLC staff to perform extensive outreach to current and prospective clients and community organizations; conduct field investigation and advocacy, including know-your-rights presentations; provide case management and support; conduct research; and organize information. Substantial overnight travel will be required.
