The Policy Analyst and Writer will be the primary content creator for the organization, developing issue briefs, research summaries, data analysis, and fact sheets in support of our policy agenda. We recognize that not all policy analysts are snappy writers, but we are looking for that rare unicorn who is as comfortable digging into a database as they are creating a 120 character Call to Action. If they can create infographics, all the better.
We prioritize collaboration with people directly impacted by the criminal justice system (including inmates, former inmates, lawyers, family members, and a wide and diverse cast of supporting characters). Everyone who is involved with Restore Justices needs to be able to draw deeply from their personal wells of compassion, versatility, tenacity, and patience.
While the Policy Analyst and Writer will primarily work at a computer, they will pitch in for “all hands” activities such as advocacy trainings, a board meetings, special court dates, lobby days, coalition meetings, and prison visits. This is a new position and it will report to the Executive Director.
