Colorado Nonprofit Association

Staff Attorney (full-time, remote)

The Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC) is seeking a full-time, experienced Staff Attorney (Senior level preferred), to join us in our practice at the intersection of disability justice and immigrant justice. We also work at other intersections of disability justice, including those involving racial justice and prisoners’ rights, and there may be opportunities for this role to participate in those efforts. This is a remote role; however, if the successful applicant is located near Denver, Colorado, there may be opportunities to work in our Denver office. 

About CREEC: 

CREEC is a national nonprofit legal organization that fights for liberation and equity through the lens of intersectional disability justice. Our work is informed by grassroots movements for systemic change and centers the concerns and goals of people with disabilities who are confronting barriers to access to programs and services and resisting oppressive legal systems across the United States.   

Our legal expertise in the disability-rights frameworks of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act allows us to move the dial for intersectional disability justice across a variety of systems that are unaccustomed and resistant to the requirements of these laws and that deny the humanity, dignity, and agency of people with disabilities. Applying these and other legal tools, we advance intersectional disability justice in a variety of high-stakes contexts, including the immigration detention-and-deportation system. For people with disabilities navigating that system, we aim to support critical harm reduction that, in turn, supports the long-term movement to abolish the system harming them and everyone subject to it. 

The ideal candidate will understand both the legal and cultural/psycho-social frameworks reflected in the detention-and-deportation system and will approach their work with and for directly impacted people in a trauma-informed way and with cultural humility, sensitivity, and warmth.    

Responsibilities of the Staff Attorney: 

Under supervision, the Staff Attorney will participate in impact litigation, class actions and other systemic and individual advocacy, including:
