About the Organization:
States United Democracy Center is a new and growing nonpartisan organization advancing free, fair, and secure elections. We focus on connecting state officials, law enforcement leaders, and pro-democracy partners across America with the tools and expertise they need to safeguard our democracy. States United engages in legal and policy actions to protect our elections and democracy. During the 2020 election, then as the Voter Protection Program, we quickly became a go-to resource for state leaders, the press, and partner organizations. By bringing together current and former governors, secretaries of state, attorneys general, and law enforcement leaders for the first time, we helped build a nonpartisan firewall against those trying to undermine democracy.
This is an exciting opportunity for the Senior Counsel to work with the Legal Director to shape the legal strategy and guide States United Democracy Center's legal work.
Salary will be between $150,000 and $175,000 and is commensurate with experience.
States United Democracy Center offers generous benefits including health, vision, dental, and retirement plans.
Our offices will be based in DC, but this position can be remote in the long-term.
