The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve systems of democracy and justice in the United States. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. Brennan Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them – in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
We seek an energetic, motivated, well-organized individual to join a high performing and collaborative Development Department. Our in-house team of nine professionals is charged with raising upwards of $24 million annually from a solid, diverse base of supporters, including: national foundations and institutional funders; major donors and family foundations; direct mail and online contributors; and an annual gala event, the Brennan Legacy Awards Dinner.
The Special Assistant will provide administrative support and research assistance to the Center’s Vice President for Development (who is also the Women & Democracy Fellow) and to the full department.
Primary responsibilities will include:
