Descripción

The Equal Rights Center (ERC) is a nonprofit civil rights organization that identifies and seeks to eliminate unlawful and unfair discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations in its home community of Greater Washington, D.C. and nationwide. The ERC’s core strategy for identifying unlawful and unfair discrimination is civil rights testing. When the ERC identifies discrimination, it seeks to eliminate it through the use of testing data to educate the public and business community, support policy advocacy, conduct compliance testing and training, and, if necessary, take enforcement action. More information about civil rights testing is available on the ERC’s website at www.equalrightscenter.org.

The ERC is hiring a Testing Coordinator. This position will be responsible for coordinating and conducting a variety of civil rights testing investigations. The Testing Coordinator will report to the Testing Manager. Because the Testing Coordinator will be providing support on investigations in nationwide locations, some travel is required for this position.

This position does not include core job duties that require regular work in the ERC’s office, so we welcome applications from applicants who are interested in remote work. However, candidate selection may be influenced by state-based business registration requirements. Applications from residents or prospective residents of the greater Washington, DC region are especially encouraged.

  • Comply with project work plans and budgets for civil rights testing under a variety of contracts and grants;
  • Aid in the development of written articles and other materials; and,
