The National Immigrant Justice Center
The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) advances human rights and due process for immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers through direct legal services, impact litigation, advocacy and public education. Since its founding more than three decades ago, NIJC has been unique in blending individual client advocacy with broad-based systemic change. Headquartered in Chicago with offices in Washington, DC, Indiana and San Diego, NIJC’s team of 100 attorneys, paralegals and professionals, along with 2,000 pro bono attorneys, is at the forefront of immigration reform.
NIJC seeks a project manager to oversee its Universal Representation Pilot Project, a new legal services initiative for detained immigrants facing removal proceedings in the Chicago Immigration Court. This project is a collaborative with four organizations and will require a person who is highly organized, a strong communicator and committed to advancing immigrant rights. NIJC seeks an experienced project manager with expertise in overseeing a project with multiple partners. We seek applicants who have a demonstrated commitment to immigrant and civil rights, and who has worked with various stakeholders, developed metrics and dashboards and created systems that would support the legal services being provided to the specific population.
