CHILD WELFARE POLICY ANALYST  APPLY TODAY

Gen Justice seeks an experienced and creative analyst to research state and federal laws related to the treatment of abused and abandoned children in the foster care system and to develop reforms that strengthen their rights, interests, and opportunities under the law.

 

Gen Justice is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. We seek a traditional, full-time hire interested in a long-term career, but we’re open to remote and contract-based proposals. A law degree is a plus.

 

Gen Justice runs the Children’s Law Clinic, the only one of its kind in Arizona, providing pro bono legal representation and services for child victims. Our work has impacted thousands of Arizona children who have suffered incest, trafficking and other severe abuse. On a macro level, our nonpartisan research and recommendations have inspired some of the nation’s most protective child laws including laws requiring the state to provide attorneys to child victims in their dependency cases, mandatory searches for children who disappear from foster care, and accountability rules strengthening the child’s right to exit state care for family as quickly and safely as possible.

 

The right candidate will be an adept, creative problem solver with a proven track record of having developed effective public policy reforms. Policy experience in the child welfare area is helpful but not required. Strong research, writing and interpersonal skills are essential.

 

To apply, please submit a cover letter of application, a one-page resume, and a work sample to
