The Wren Collective, a criminal justice advising firm with a sister 501(c)(3), is recruiting a principal (7+ years criminal justice experience) or an associate (3+ years criminal justice experience) to join our team. Current members at Wren have spent time in the trenches, first as public defenders and later producing policies, legislation, and advocacy campaigns for both elected officials and grassroots groups across the country. Now, we use that expertise to assist those who want to dramatically transform this country’s unjust and unfair criminal legal system. We work with elected officials, candidates for office, professional athletes, and grassroots and grasstops organizations to advise on policy creation and implementation, campaign strategy, and effective communications. We work exclusively with clients committed to making this system less carceral, less racist, and more humane.

Wren is a collective, in name and in function. We work closely together and make decisions jointly about which projects to take on and what makes sense for our clients strategically. To the extent possible, we distribute work based on the specific interests and talents of our members. 

We are a growing group, and, depending on level of experience, the new member will help guide Wren’s future, bring in new ideas and projects, and examine other growth opportunities.

Desired qualifications:

  • 7+ years of combined social justice work experience for principal, 3+ for associate;
  • Law Degree;
  • Strong writing skills;
  • Communications experience;
  • Ability to travel (when safe);
  • Willingness to work remotely;
  • A passion to end mass incarceration and the racist and unequal criminal legal system;
  • Public defender experience preferred.


Compensation range, 80K - 120K per year, plus benefits, depending on experience.
