Public Rights Project (PRP) is a public interest legal nonprofit, headquartered in Oakland, with a remote team based throughout the United States. Its mission is to close the gap between the promise of our laws and the lived reality of our most vulnerable communities. Since 2017, PRP has been working at the intersection of community organizing and state and local government enforcement to build a scalable, equitable community-based enforcement model to protect civil rights and advance economic justice. PRP supports progressive state and local governments, including Attorneys General, District Attorneys, and City Attorneys' Offices with legal strategy, research, fellowships, and community partnerships to help offices develop high-impact legal cases. The PRP team is a fully-remote staff of 23 and counting in cities including Oakland, LA, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Durham, and Seattle (among others), and have a regular rotation of legal fellows, interns, and law school clerks.

The Director of Organizing (DO) will develop a national, multi-issue organizing strategy that builds relationships and supports individuals impacted by harms from the under enforcement of laws designed to protect them. The DO will play a critical role in identifying national and local partners across a range of issue areas that advance progressive values and policies. These mutually beneficial partnerships will help PRP's legal team identify, amplify the voice of, and protect individuals while placing pressure on local governments to take action. PRP's organizing strategy will be simultaneously national in scope and hyper local in focus, balancing its long-term issue priorities with urgent and emerging advocacy needs.
This is an ideal opportunity for a veteran organizer to impact a range of national issues. They will leverage PRP's strong existing organizing framework and current network to build an effective strategy that advances justice. The DO reports to the Chief Program Officer and will hire, manage, and support a team of organizers in the next year. As a manager, the DO will sit on PRP's leadership team and help execute and refine PRP's strategic plan, while serving as an external voice of PRP's work, particularly with partner organizations.
