About ACLC's mission:
Everyday there are families in fear of losing their homes; children in fear of losing a parent to jail; and parents in fear of losing children to divorce. They deserve robust legal protection. ACLC makes quality legal representation available to families who would not otherwise have access to it. We also work in the fields of impact litigation, policy advocacy, and supporting community groups.
We are committed to being just as progressive in the workplace as we are in public – including pay equity, transparent decision-making, and collaborative planning for the future. We encourage self-starters. Authority structures lean toward horizontal. We will support you in your professional growth.
