About PLAN

Phoenix Legal Action Network (PLAN) advances justice in Arizona by defending the rights of immigrants and their families. 

PLAN began in December 2016 as an informal, volunteer-run network of attorneys and other community members. In January 2018, in response to the lack of legal services for non-detained immigrants in the community who cannot afford an attorney, PLAN launched a legal services program in partnership with the Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project (FIRRP) to: (1) provide free legal services to immigrant families in Maricopa County who are at risk of deportation, and (2) meet immigrant communities and families where they feel safe and welcome by hosting community legal education workshops and legal clinics in partnership with local immigrants' rights organizations.  In less than two years, the PLAN attorney has provided 210 free immigration consultations and free legal representation to 116 Arizonans including long-time Arizona residents and recently arrived asylum seekers.

PLAN now seeks to sustain and expand its direct legal services and, over the next three to five years, grow its work to include holistic social and legal services for its clients, strategic impact litigation, policy advocacy, and community outreach.

 

Job Description

We are now searching for our first Executive Director (ED) to drive PLAN into our next phase and direct our efforts to advance justice and equality through litigation, advocacy, and support of immigrants and their families. Most importantly, our ED will need to be a motivated fundraiser, who is a self-starter.

The Executive Director will report to the PLAN Board of Directors and manage the organization's budget so that we can responsibly grow the organization.

  • Demonstrate authentic, inclusive, and inspirational leadership that is committed to equity and justice, centered around the experiences of our clients and the communities we serve; 
  • Institute organizational policies and practices that are aligned with our core values and ensure that -- like our clients -- our staff feels safe, strong, and valued. 

Key Responsibilities  

  1. Provide executive leadership and strategic direction to all staff, including staff attorney and legal aide.
  2. Ensure organizational and financial stability through oversight of budget and fiscal operations.
  3. Lead efforts to expand PLAN's fundraising capacity in order to meet developmental goals set by the Board.
  4. Develop and ensure sustainable and responsive programming and most efficient and effective use of resources.
  5. Serve as the public face for PLAN and enhance the organization's profile in local, state and national legal networks as well as among client community organizations, immigrant communities, philanthropic community, policymakers and other stakeholders.
  6. Lead public relations efforts and participate in speaking engagements, partnerships, forums and other external activities.
  7. Conduct community outreach and build relationships with other non-profit organizations to facilitate PLAN's ability to connect with immigrant clients.
  8. Report to the Board and support its recommendations for allocation of fiscal resources and implementation of its adopted budget and fiscal policies.
Position Qualifications:

Desired Qualities and Experience

  1. Demonstrated commitment to social justice and immigrants' rights and human dignity
  2. Deep understanding of and experience with policies and issues impacting immigrant communities.

Assessment: Participate in the assessment process and use evaluation results to guide individualized student goals, intervention, and curriculum; regularly monitor child progress and update or modify individual goals on student's individualized learning plans (ILPs); document academic and behaviorally-based data and maintain an efficient organization system; actively and regularly engage in self-assessment to identify personal strengths and areas for growth.

Role model: Bring to life our core values of community, commitment, and courage; establish and maintain a positive culture where all members of our community are treated with dignity, respect, and kindness; remain open to new ideas and respond to changes in a flexible manner; dare to be creative, contribute new ideas, and provide thoughtful suggestions; point out the accomplishments of others and celebrate team success.
