Director of Litigation - National Consumer Law Center (Boston or D.C.)
The National Consumer Law Center, the country’s preeminent advocate for low-income consumers, proudly traces its roots to the 1960s “War on Poverty” in its work as a support center for legal services offices. NCLC’s expertise includes policy analysis, high-impact advocacy, litigation, and extensive training for a nationwide network of consumer advocates. It works closely with nonprofit and legal services organizations, private attorneys, civil rights and grassroots organizations, and federal and state policymakers across the nation to stop exploitative practices, help financially stressed families build and retain wealth, and advance economic fairness.

This is an exciting opportunity to work for a growing and dynamic national advocacy organization that is fighting to level the economic playing field and ensure greater economic fairness and security, especially as it relates to advancing racial justice.
