- Jan. 6, 2020: We’ve hired one Research Associate and one Policy Fellow to start in June and September. We’re interviewing for one more opening, but have stopped accepting applications because we have a number of strong applicants.
We are exploring adding several more positions in the next year.
We are particularly interested in hearing from regular users of our work, including experienced policy analysts in the adjacent fields of racial justice, housing security, income security, education policy, electoral fairness, mental health advocacy, or immigration reform who would like to transition to full-time criminal justice advocacy from our Easthampton, Mass. office. (Posted January 2020)
- Starting in May 2020, we will be accepting applications for a Policy Fellow to start in September 2021.
