The Detroit Justice Center is founded on the belief that we cannot build cities that work for everyone without remedying the impacts of mass incarceration and transforming our justice system. We are looking for creative, experienced professionals to support our mission to deliver community lawyering services, create economic opportunities, and promote just cities.

We strongly encourage people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and individuals with past involvement in the justice system or who have loved ones currently or formerly in the justice system to apply.
