“The only genuine elite is the elite of those men and women who gave their lives to justice and charity.” —Sargent Shriver

We are a high-energy committed team, and we work hard to deliver change that will advance justice and opportunity for the millions of people living in poverty.

Our people are our greatest asset. We seek to hire individuals from diverse backgrounds who are professional, collaborative, and creative thinkers with a passion for our mission. We offer generous benefits, a flexible working environment, and opportunities to work on interesting and unique projects that help bring about important change.

In addition to occasional openings for key organizational leaders, staff attorneys, and support staff, we regularly offer fellowship, internship, and volunteer opportunities. For more information, contact Ryan Deringer.
