The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is seeking a Health Policy Attorney or Analyst to help organize NILC’s federal health policy advocacy, which is aimed at ensuring that low-income immigrants have access to affordable health care and coverage. This position will work closely with NILC’s DC Director and the Access to Health Care Project Manager to develop and implement NILC’s federal immigrant health policy agenda.
The National Immigration Law Center’s mission is to defend and advance the rights of low-income immigrants and their families. NILC envisions a country in which all people—regardless of their race, gender, immigration or economic status—are treated fairly and humanely, and have equal access to justice, education, government resources and economic opportunities that make it possible for them to achieve their full human potential. NILC has been a national leader for over three decades in legal and policy advocacy efforts to ensure that low-income immigrants have opportunities to prosper and thrive. Through innovative policy and legal advocacy strategies, we have won landmark decisions protecting fundamental due process and civil rights, thwarted policy changes that would have devastated the lives of low-income immigrants and their family members, and advanced major policies that reinforce our nation’s values of equality and justice for all.
