The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon is an advocacy organization dedicated to defending and advancing civil liberties and civil rights through work in the courts, in the legislature, and in communities. We fight for free speech, racial justice, criminal justice reform, religious liberty, reproductive rights, LGBT rights, immigrants' rights, and more. We are organized as a nonpartisan, nonprofit, membership organization with nearly 50,000 members and supporters in Oregon. The ACLU of Oregon is an affiliate of the ACLU, our nation’s guardian of liberty for 100 years.

The ACLU of Oregon is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values for us, and we encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to 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, citizenship, disability, veteran or uniformed service status, record of arrest or conviction, or any other basis protected by and consistent with the law. We also encourage qualified people with justice system involvement to apply. 

In addition to our strong mission and fulfilling work, we strive to be better and are strengthening our commitment to equity and dismantling white supremacy. We value work/life balance, offer generous benefits, and are located in downtown Portland. During the COVID-19 pandemic, most positions are working remotely with some work at our offices as needed operationally.

Applicants who require or may require a disability-related accommodation for the application and/or related processes should contact us at jobs@aclu-or.org or call (503) 227-3186 for assistance.
