For nearly 100 years, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, preserving the right to vote, the right to have an abortion, the rights protected by the First Amendment and due process of law, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. The ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, economic status, national origin, immigration status, incarceration or record of arrest or conviction. We are nonprofit and nonpartisan and have grown from a roomful of civil liberties activists to an organization of more than 1.6 million members and supporters.

The Affiliate Support and Nationwide Initiatives department builds state capacity and strengthens and maintains the connections between the ACLU and its network of 54 state affiliates and the 1500 staff who work out of the state offices. Their work constitutes an unparalleled bulwark in the defending and advancing of civil liberties and civil rights. The Department staff leads efforts to share knowledge, talent, and skill across the organization, building the next generation of civil rights leaders and positioning the organization for future challenges.

The Director, People and Management, is a member of the senior team in the department of Affiliate Support and Nationwide Initiatives. The position is dedicated to helping affiliates – from the smallest to largest – build their management, leadership and governance practices. The Director understands how to navigate and teach how to navigate change, build teams, engage in organizational structure and design, broad strategic planning, program evaluation, project management, and organizational financial health. The position reports to the Director of Affiliate Support and Nationwide Initiatives and manages a team of staff with expertise in finance, management, and development.
