The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation’s leading organization of people who believe the war on drugs is doing more harm than good. In its vision of the future, individuals will not be punished simply for what they put into their bodies, only for harm done to others. DPA fights for drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights and seeks to promote dialogue on cutting-edge drug policy issues around the country. Its work spans issues from ending marijuana prohibition and promoting more honest and effective drug education to reducing the many harms of drug use and drug laws. DPA works to ensure that our nation’s drug policies no longer arrest, incarcerate, disenfranchise and otherwise harm millions of nonviolent people, especially people of color.
The Law Fellow will be based in DPA’s Office of Legal Affairs in Berkeley, California, and will work alongside DPA’s three attorneys supporting DPA staff in a wide range of matters in state and federal courts and legislative bodies. The Law Fellow will also work closely with DPA staff and coalition partners across the country. Some travel will be required.
