Job Description

Northwest Justice Project  (NJP) secures justice for people in or near poverty through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of low-income individuals, families and communities through legal representation, community partnerships, education, and other advocacy.

Northwest Justice Project (NJP) seeks two qualified attorneys committed to supporting our

mission through the work of our Farm Worker Unit (FWU). The FWU is a statewide unit that provides legal assistance to low-income agricultural workers throughout Washington. NJP is offering an
opportunity to work in an exciting and highly mission driven legal aid environment working as part
of a statewide legal team. These are full-time positions that may be in NJP’s Yakima, Wenatchee,
Omak, Quincy, or Tri-Cities office.

NJP seeks two attorneys who have a strong interest in working with farm worker communities and
are willing to live and work in a rural area. The attorneys must be bilingual in English and Spanish
and culturally competent to address the legal needs of farm workers and their communities.

The successful applicants will have demonstrated interest in one or more areas of high priority
legal need for farm workers, such as employment and civil rights, a demonstrated ability to
establish trust and connections with low-income client communities, and have a strong interest in
conducting outreach and undertaking a broad range of advocacy strategies.

NJP requires all employees to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. Proof of COVID
vaccine is a condition of employment at NJP. Exemptions based on medical and sincerely held
religious beliefs may be requested per NJP’s EEO employer policy.
