It is an exciting time at the ACLU of Oregon: we are envisioning an approach to our work that centers Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), low-income, and other marginalized communities and voices, expanding our fundraising base, strengthening our legal and advocacy firepower, and amplifying public engagement and support for our work to fight threats to the freedom and well-being of individuals and communities head on — and win.
In addition to fulfilling our strong mission and high-profile work, we aspire to create and nurture an internal culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and to dismantle white supremacy and replace it with equitable organizational structures. To this end, we are intentionally seeking to attract team members and leaders who are interested in shaping our future as an equity-focused organization that centers and prioritizes our internal and external work with the following values: anti-racism, anti-misogyny, anti-transphobia, anti-homophobia, anti-ableism, and other forms of anti-oppression.
All positions at the ACLU of Oregon require strong and continued commitment to these values and the proven ability to incorporate these values into work internal and external to the organization. We are committed to creating and sustaining an organization and community that values and respects differences of race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family relationship to a current or prior employee, immigration status, citizenship, varying ability or disability status, veteran or uniformed service status, record of arrest or conviction, and socio-economic status.
As well, we are committed to creating and nurturing an internal space that supports and prioritizes the well-being and safety of team members, our work-life balance, and our ability to engage in the hard work of justice while flourishing as individuals, family members, parents, spouses, partners, friends, and community members.
