The ACLU of Washington is a nonprofit organization devoted to defending and extending civil rights and civil liberties.  Current job openings and internships in our Seattle office are listed on our Careers page.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the ACLU of Washington. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we have received in recent months.
The ACLU is an equal opportunity employer. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture and are committed to race equity in all aspects of our work. The ACLU encourages applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, veteran status, socio-economic circumstance, or record of arrest or conviction. We do not conduct criminal background checks on our candidates.

Please also consider donating your time to other organizations in your area that directly serve people who face discrimination and unequal treatment. In addition to applying for specific positions and projects, here are the most effective ways to lend a hand:

  • Become a card-carrying member and spread the word about membership to friends and family.
  • Take Action! Sign up for our E-mail Activist Network to receive timely alerts on issues.

  • Participate in ACLU-WA events, including Flights and Rights, where you’ll hear about current civil rights issues from us and other allies.
