Partners for Justice was founded to transform public defense locally and across the United States to ensure that race and wealth no longer determine legal outcomes. This means ensuring that public defenders are equipped to assist clients with the underlying circumstances driving their involvement in the legal system, secure better legal outcomes both inside and outside the courtroom, and ensure that more clients can walk away from the criminal legal system with their rights, life, and future protected. Since our launch in 2018, PFJ has grown rapidly and we now support twelve public defender offices across the country.

Overview

PFJ works closely with public defender offices to help them adopt more holistic practices. Our flagship program embeds trained Client Advocates in a host public defender, immediately expanding their ability to provide clients with wraparound support. The Los Angeles Program Manager will have responsibility for our partnership with the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office, one of PFJ’s largest relationships. The Program Manager will help train Client Advocates, build relationships within LACPDO, provide resources and support to the Advocates’ on-site supervisors, build a network of local partner organizations, and provide coaching and support to Advocates. This work is critical to ensure that LACPDO is equipped with the knowledge, capacity, and resources to implement holistic practices in the offices that work with PFJ.

The Los Angeles Program Director will report to PFJ’s Regional Director for California.

Program Manager Responsibilities

  1. Technical assistance to LACPDO: Act as primary point of contact with designated public defender partners, building meaningful relationships with Advocate supervisors. Offer advice and best practices on integrating holistic defense generally and the PFJ program specifically into office practice.
  2. Coach and empower PFJ Advocates: Provide one-on-one support to Advocates on personal and professional development. Work with teams to identify and integrate best practices for the PFJ program in their office. Organize regular trainings or workshops to deliver local learning experiences that meet Advocate needs (in partnership with office supervisors).
  3. Partnership development: Working with Advocates and office supervisors, identify and build relationships with community-based organizations and government agencies providing services that benefit clients.
  4. Fundraising: With support and direction from PFJ’s leadership, identify possible Los Angeles-based grant opportunities to support PFJ’s work and contribute to relationship building and proposal development.
  5. Community awareness: Maintain knowledge of local dynamics and context that affect clients, including developments in the criminal legal system or related to poverty alleviation. Help Advocates understand the communities in which they are working.
  6. National resources: Help define the PFJ Advocate role and experience. Gather best practices and contribute to national resources to enhance the Advocate practice and experience. Contribute to PFJ’s annual and ongoing training events.
  7. Coordination: Facilitate communication between national PFJ team and local Advocate and office teams, ensuring visibility on national initiatives and local dynamics.
