We are searching for an attorney to provide legal guidance on corporate/nonprofit law and regulations, serve as attorney of record on legal documents, and represent the organization in legal matters. Though not required, we welcome attorneys that are interested in impact litigation in the interests of human rights and social justice.
We currently have several paralegals and law students serving on our board of directors that can assist the volunteer attorney.
Be licensed or authorized (e.g. pro hac vice) to practice in California and federal jurisdictions.
Certified law students are welcome to work with us if they have approval from their supervising attorney.
Everyone in our organization, from our board members to our Capitol advocates, are unpaid volunteers who care about the people of California and seek to make a difference. We need more volunteers to assist in research, education, social media, public relations, district outreach, fundraising, and Capitol advocacy. With the rise of nationalism over the past few years and the COVID-19 pandemic exposing the injustices in our society, the organization is expanding its scope to national education and advocacy programs.
To apply, contact us through VolunteerMatch or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The California Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit lobby group made of ordinary citizens and volunteers focused on making our communities a safe haven for human rights and individual liberty.
The CCLA was originally founded to advocate for civil liberties and human rights in the State of California. Our work has primarily focused on online education and legislative advocacy in the California State Legislature and the Governor's Office. We have lobbied, supported, and sponsored many legislative changes over the years including immigrant rights, criminal justice reform, license plate and smart phone surveillance protections, and victims of religious sexual abuse. After the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing police violence, and the rise of fascism, the CCLA has decided to expand its scope to national issues, sponsor an online media outlet, and start a training program to facilitate the building of a large coalition of leftist organizations to communicate left ideals and principles in the U.S. Congress and all 50 state legislatures.
