Social Justice Collaborative ("SJC") is a nonprofit legal aid society that provides affordable legal services to low-income noncitizens at risk for removal from the United States. SJC provides services from the main office in Berkeley, California, satellite office in Modesto, and remotely. SJC is a direct services agency specializing in litigating both criminal and immigration issues. We believe strongly in advocating for the rights of all, securing the civil rights of especially those who cannot afford adequate legal protection.
SJC is looking for new members of the board of directors to help support SJC’s work. Our board consists of professionals from a range of backgrounds who work together to support the current operating and future success of SJC. This includes assisting with fundraising, marketing, outreach, financial oversight, strategic planning, and other tasks in support of SJC’s mission.
New board members join one or more committees (events, marketing, or governance), which meet monthly to work on current initiatives. The full board meets quarterly with SJC’s founders, who serve as the Executive Director and Legal Director. The upcoming board term starts in January 2022 and is a 3-year term with the possibility of renewal. New board members are paired with a continuing board member to assist with transitioning into their new role.
If interested, please fill out our application and we will reach out with more information if we might be a good match: https://airtable.com/shrIldpynlVndySyB
