American Civil Liberties Union of Delaware
For almost 100 years, the ACLU has been at the forefront of every major civil liberties fight in our country’s history. Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote and a women’s right to choose, we take up the toughest civil liberties issues to defend all individuals from government abuse and overreach.
With ACLU affiliate offices in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, we fight tirelessly in the courts, legislatures and through community engagement to ensure that all individuals’ rights are protected. Our strength and resourcefulness as a national network is unsurpassed. We are a passionate, highly motivated group of attorneys, public policy advocates, communication experts, community organizers, and fundraisers, and we’re looking for exceptional talent to join our team.
The ACLU of Delaware is an exciting, fast-paced place to work. We focus our efforts on criminal justice reform, prison reform, and quality education for all students no matter their socioeconomic status or learning challenges—while also protecting core constitutional principles such as free speech and defending against discrimination. We are a small but mighty, closely knit staff who produce substantial outcomes that improve the lives of Delawareans up and down state. Death penalty reform and protection of women in prison from sexual assault are just two of the recent victories in which we played a leadership role.
Wilmington, where we are housed in a renovated office building with scores of other non-profit organizations, is a worldwide center of commerce by day and alive with music, art and dining at night. It is located in the Brandywine Valley, acclaimed for its gardens and natural beauty. Centrally located, Wilmington provides easy access to Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York and Washington D.C. and, of course, the famous Delaware beaches. The cost of living in Delaware is low, especially compared to neighboring states. In short, Delaware has something for everyone.
