The Lawyers’ Committee is working with partners across the country to advocate for fair representation of communities of color during the redistricting process. We seek a temporary Redistricting Data & GIS Analyst to provide redistricting data and GIS analysis to support the Voting Rights Project (VRP). The Analyst will support the VRP’s redistricting work in 2021 by collecting, cleaning, organizing data, creating maps, and analyzing proposed maps.
This is a temporary, full-time, 6-month (renewable) position based in Washington, DC. This position is for an early-career degreed professional (B.S. level) interested in the political process and deep commitment to racial justice. The Analyst will work closely with VRP’s Social Scientist and work under the supervision of the Co-Directors for the Voting Rights Project. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lawyers’ Committee is currently operating remotely but plans to return to in-person operations at a yet-to-be-determined date.
The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is one of the leading national civil rights legal organizations, with the principal mission of fighting racial discrimination faced by African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities. The Lawyers’ Committee was formed in 1963 at President John F. Kennedy's request to enlist the private bar’s leadership and resources in combating racial discrimination and the resulting inequality of opportunity – work that continues to be vital today
