Communities Rise is currently hiring!

Nonprofit Attorney
Communities Rise seeks an attorney committed to social justice and skilled in nonprofit law to help advance our bold mission to build community power. Under our nonprofit program, the Nonprofit Attorney will provide transactional legal assistance to nonprofit organizations, primarily those led by and serving BIPOC and other marginalized communities, in order to help their nonprofits—and their communities—thrive. Related tasks toward this goal will include creating written educational and training materials and collaborating with community partners to leverage additional resources for nonprofits. The Nonprofit Attorney will also occasionally provide similar legal assistance to small businesses. Key values guiding Communities Rise’s legal and capacity building work that we expect the candidate to embrace are: a relationship-building and client-centered approach to working with our clients from BIPOC and other marginalized communities; a strong commitment to race equity and racial justice; and a commitment to collaboration and flexibility. Candidates who are drawn towards community lawyering and transactional lawyering as a way to promote social justice are prime candidates for this position.
