Job o’ the Day: Policy Advocacy Fellow for the ACLU of Washington’s Project to Protect Health Care Choices (Seattle)

From the PSJD job posting:

The ACLU of Washington is a non-profit public interest organization devoted to protecting civil rights and civil liberties. Its staff of thirty employees and numerous volunteers work in a fast-paced, friendly and professional office.

The Project: The ACLU of Washington is working to advance a comprehensive, strategic and effective education and advocacy campaign to safeguard access to medical care free from restrictions based on others’ religious doctrine. Increasingly, secular hospitals are merging with religiously affiliated ones and coming under their religious restrictions to care. The ACLU of Washington believes that no patient should be refused access to lawful health care because of the religious doctrines of the institutions running hospitals, clinics, or other medical facilities. Health care facilities open to the general public should not refuse to provide reproductive health care and end-of-life care services; nor should they discriminate against LGBT patients and families. Religious ideology should not dictate which health care services a patient may choose.

This is a one to two year, full time position to provide legal and policy research on health care mergers in Washington and to coordinate implementation of the campaign plan. The position will work with an inter-departmental team of staff lawyers and advocates and will report to the Deputy Director.

Qualifications include experience in health care policy/advocacy and demonstrated skills as an articulate, effective public advocate. For more information on how to apply, view the full job listing on PSJD.org (log-in required).
