Join Our Team

Senior Staff Associate 1

The Probation and Parole Reform Project seeks to end mass supervision and create more community-led systems of justice that no longer rely on surveillance and punishment as a default. The Senior Staff Associate will manage the team’s work in multiple sites, helping to structure rapid response and more intensive engagements aimed at making supervision smaller, less punitive, and more equitable, while creating new community leadership capacity for individuals and families impacted by supervision. The incumbent will survey and assess the local landscape for reform in identified sites, convene local stakeholders and policymakers to create planning processes, establish and coordinate work plans that support the development of community-based reforms, deploy members from the Executives Transforming Probation and Parole (EXiT) network to support the work, develop various written products to support reform, and cultivate relationships with the media and funders to highlight and support ongoing work.
