Copywriter — ASU Enterprise Partners (Tempe)

Date Posted: June 13, 2019
Position Description:

What we do:

ASU Enterprise Partners is a global-reaching non-profit based in Tempe, AZ. We raise resources to support students, researchers and programs at Arizona State University so that they can improve the world.

 

As is customary at ASU, we operate a little differently: not only do we cultivate philanthropy, we also identify real estate, technology transfer, international partnership and defense research opportunities that yield private support for the university. You can learn more about each of these entities at www.asuenterprisepartners.org.

 

Who we are:

Our team is varied - fundraisers, designers, scholars, financial wizards, ex-CEOs, filmmakers, venture capitalists, inventors, volunteers - and each member brings a different perspective to our vision.

 

Regardless of background, we share a mission that we can help, that quality higher education should be accessible -- no matter from where one comes -- and that we are responsible for the wellbeing of the communities we live in and serve.

 

Want to advance the most innovative university in the country - and your work? Join us.

There is no single career journey at Enterprise Partners. Roles often shift as passions are discovered. You'll be encouraged to look across the organization to determine if new areas are of interest - whether in fundraising, real estate development, social media or something else. Training courses are offered every week, and our main offices face ASU's Tempe campus, where our employees' tuition is significantly reduced.

 

Our advancement opportunities are real - and so is the ability to be part of an intellectually stimulating, people-focused, mission-driven team doing meaningful work in a beautiful, vibrant, sunlit location.

 

Details about our comprehensive benefits are available at https://www.asuenterprisepartners.org/careers/benefits.

The ACLU Foundation of Arizona seeks an experienced attorney to build, file, and litigate complex civil actions in state and federal court around our four key priority issues: immigrants' rights, criminal justice reform, education equity, and LGBTQ equality.

Much of that work will focus on immigration-related litigation and advocacy, including addressing unlawful immigration enforcement practices, challenging inhumane conditions of confinement in short- and long-term immigration detention facilities, reducing immigration detention, protecting the due process rights of detained immigrants, and disentangling local law enforcement from immigration enforcement.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Investigate, develop, and litigate high-impact cases at the trial and appellate levels in federal and state courts.
  • Serve as co-counsel and work in conjunction with other staff within the ACLU of Arizona, the National ACLU, other ACLU affiliates, and partner organizations to bring pro-active litigation around immigrants' rights and other strategic priority issues.
  • Follow-up with individuals who file complaints with the ACLU, including interviewing them, drafting affidavits or testimonies on their behalf, and conducting research to determine whether further action by the ACLU is warranted.
  • File administrative complaints with governmental agencies and records requests to obtain information about civil rights violations along the U.S.-Mexico border and across the state.
  • Serve as a policy expert and advocate on state and local immigration issues in support of legislation and other campaigns, with responsibilities including public speaking, media interviews, outreach, and "know your rights" presentations, as well as writing op-eds, newsletter articles, and reports.
  • Provide technical support and strategic leadership to community groups, advocates, and organizers in the Tucson/border region.

  • Admitted to the Arizona Bar or eligible for admission under Arizona Supreme Court Rule 34(f) (admission on motion) or 38(f) (employment by approved legal services organization).
  • Excellent research, writing, analytic, and speaking skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to independently develop and litigate impact cases.
  • Demonstrated ability to work in diverse coalitions and develop advocacy campaigns.
  • Willingness to work beyond a standard 8-hour workday, including evening and weekend meetings, and to work weeks commonly in excess of 40 hours.
  • Willingness to travel regularly within Arizona.
  • Experience working with vulnerable communities, preferably with immigrants, incarcerated people, or indigent populations.
  • Spanish language fluency.

COMPENSATION:

Salary is commensurate with experience and within the parameters of ACLU of Arizona's salary scale.
