AB v. DSHS (TRUEBLOOD) Legal Fellow, Full-Time and Exempt Employee, Reports to the Director of Treatment Facilities Program
Disability Rights Washington (DRW) seeks a full-time Legal Fellow to work on the AB v. DSHS (Trueblood) lawsuit. This fellowship is limited to a 24-month term, with the potential for additional employment if DRW determines that additional funding is secured or available. You can view our Employment page here to see other open positions at DRW.
DRW understands the importance and contribution of candidates with lived experience. People with disabilities, African American, Black, Indigenous, and people of color, and those from other oppressed groups and all protected classes are strongly encouraged to apply. Given the class members in Trueblood are people with significant mental illness held in jails and psychiatric hospitals, attorneys with mental health conditions who have lived experience with these systems would be especially well-suited for this fellowship.
Candidates must be dedicated to participating in DRW’s daily attempts to apply Disability Justice and race equity principles to our work. Information about Disability Justice can be found here: https://www.sinsinvalid.org/blog/10-principles-of-disability-justice. DRW is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and expects employees to participate in DEI-related work and trainings. Information about DRW and DEI can be found here: https://www.disabilityrightswa.org/diversity-equity-inclusion/.
This position will be based in either our Seattle or Spokane office. There is the option to work remotely at least part of each week. The fellow must reside in Washington within six weeks of starting the position.
