The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Florida seeks a Data Analyst. The Data Analyst works in the ACLU of Florida’s Policy and Advocacy Department and supports the work of the ACLU’s Southern Collective. This position is located in the organization’s Jacksonville office and may include travel throughout the South.
The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Florida is an affiliate of the national ACLU, a national public interest organization devoted to the defense of the Bill of Rights. For over 100 years, the ACLU has served as the nation’s primary protector of the liberties that define our democracy. The organization implements its vital civil liberties mission in all 50 states in large part through affiliate entities such as the ACLU of Florida. Operating out of four offices—Miami (main), Tampa, Pensacola, and Jacksonville—the Florida affiliate has a budget of over $8 million and 55 staff members, placing it among the larger ACLU affiliates in the nation.
The ACLU of Florida, the state’s largest civil rights and civil liberties organization, employs litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education to protect and promote a broad range of constitutional values and individual rights, such as freedom of speech, racial justice, right to privacy, religious liberty, criminal justice reform, voting rights, reproductive rights, LGBT rights, disability rights, and immigrants’ rights. The ACLU of Florida litigates a broad range of complex constitutional cases in federal and state courts through direct representation, filing amicus briefs, and submitting administrative complaints to state and federal agencies.
The Southern Collective is made up of the ACLU’s 12 affiliates in the South – the ACLUs of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. In partnership with ACLU National, the Southern Collective was launched in 2019 to address the challenges in the South that are rooted in its unique history of racial oppression and violence and equally remarkable history of civil rights struggles and victories. The Collective’s strength lies in its power to share and collaborate for change in a region that is paving the way for racial justice nationwide.
The Data Analyst is a staff position within the Affiliate’s Policy and Advocacy Department (PAD). The position reports to the Deputy Political Director and provides support to the twelve ACLU affiliates of the Southern Collective and the Southern Collective itself. The Data Analyst will analyze data to develop and explain insights into civil rights issues facing Southern affiliates, primarily in the realm of voting rights, racial justice, and criminal legal reform. These insights will inform policy, communications, and legal campaign strategies, while data visualization products will support integrated advocacy campaigns. In addition, the Data Analyst may provide support in litigation, message testing for advocacy campaigns in the South, and contribute to operational system analyses of the Southern affiliates. This is a three (3) year contract position.
COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS
Compensation will be commensurate with experience, within the range of $52,000 - $70,000. The ACLU of Florida provides excellent benefits, including health and dental insurance with generous vacation, holiday and sick leave policies, as well as a Defined Contribution 401K Retirement Plan.
