The Vera Institute of Justice is working to build truly national momentum toward reversing mass incarceration everywhere in America. It’s a lofty, ambitious goal—so we’re also building an audacious, creative team of reformers who like big ideas and big challenges. Does that sound like you?
The In Our Backyards Outreach Strategist will report to, and work collaboratively with, the Director of Outreach to (1) support public education efforts to transform research into action, (2) manage and build relationships at the state and local level, and (3) be part of a national mobilization around local incarceration.
This position will join an interdisciplinary, cross-functional team that includes data scientists, policy experts, ethnographers, and writers that span the research, policy, and communications functions at Vera. They will also be accountable to the project team lead and the Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs.
