    The Opportunity

    The Justice and Accountability Center (JAC) seeks a dynamic, experienced Executive Director who can bring a bold vision and new energy to the organization’s strong foundation and network of community partners.

    Over the last ten years, JAC has grown into a thriving, mission-focused organization with a dynamic team of legal advocates, community organizers, and attorneys that work with clients and lawmakers to ensure that individuals have the appropriate services in the post-conviction phase of the criminal legal system. JAC is committed to not only providing quality direct services but also fighting through legislative advocacy for bold change alongside people impacted by Louisiana’s criminal legal system.

    Since 2017, the staff and budget have doubled, and JAC is poised to significantly expand its work throughout the state over the next decade. Key opportunities for the next leader include

    ● Partnering with the Board of JAC and staff leadership to develop a renewed strategic vision for the organization

    ● Diversifying funding sources while also maintaining its core funding

    ● Leveraging new opportunities to serve those impacted by the criminal legal system.

    The Organization

    JAC eliminates obstacles to opportunity for people harmed by the systemic racism and economic impacts of the criminal legal system through legal services, public education, and policy advocacy.

    We envision a world without barriers or limits for people with criminal records and their families,

    where we all have a fair chance to thrive.

    We are a ten-year-old, small, statewide non-profit that relies on pro bono attorneys, contract attorneys, law students, and volunteers, in addition to our staff, to accomplish our mission.

    We launch new programs and identify new clients primarily through legal clinics, as well as through cooperating with court administrators to bundle and fast-track cases, like our ReEntry Docket

    Program, where we just reached the over $1M mark of court debt eliminated in Orleans Municipal Court. Much of our work is done through collaborative models with government entities and non-profit partners, whether we are providing legal services or engaging in advocacy work. JAC facilitates several statewide coalitions, including the Louisiana Stop Solitary Coalition and three different policy coalitions focusing on driver’s license suspensions, expungements, and criminal fines & fees. These coalitions have changed the law on solitary confinement for the first time in 150 years in Louisiana, as well as advanced expungement law changes that have expanded eligibility to thousands of people with criminal records in our state.

    Executive Director Opportunity

    Our organizational leadership includes the Executive Director and three Programmatic Directors:

    1. Advocacy which encompasses JAC's legislative and policy work, community education initiatives and participation in the legislative process, and client representation associated with ensuring compliance with or advancing priority legislation.

    2. Outreach and Community Engagement, which encompasses JAC's social media presence to inform the public of our work and upcoming events, managing Outreach Specialists who present JAC Know Your Rights sessions, and engaging with and coordinating JAC community coalitions, including the New Endings and Opportunities (NEO) Coalition and the Louisiana Stop Solitary Coalition.

    3. Legal Director who oversees all legal staff and coordinates JAC's legal clinics and events (both expungement and reentry) and legal representation and litigation around priorities to meet grant deliverables in the areas of expungements, child support, background checks, andpublic records.

    The JAC team currently has a hybrid work model, and we anticipate the new Executive Director will be located in New Orleans or Baton Rouge.
