Work With Us

Children’s Rights is a national advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of children living in or impacted by America’s child welfare, juvenile legal, immigration, education, and healthcare systems. These systems disproportionately harm children of color, LGBTQ/TGNC, and other minority youth.

We use civil rights impact litigation, advocacy and policy expertise, and public education to hold governments accountable for keeping kids safe and healthy. Our work centers on creating lasting systemic change that will advance the rights of children for generations.

We’re always interested in hearing from smart, passionate people who share our commitment to improving the lives of children. Check back often for new staff positions, fellowships and internships – we look forward to hearing from you!
