The Human Rights Defense Center is a nonprofit organization that advocates for the human rights of people held in U.S. detention facilities.
For the past 27 years HRDC has published a monthly magazine, Prison Legal News, that covers civil case law and news related to prisons, jails and criminal justice issues. We are launching another national monthly publication, Criminal Legal News, which will focus on state criminal law plus news related to policing and law enforcement, with an emphasis on criminal law court rulings, government corruption and misconduct, and the need for reform.
We are seeking a managing/copy editor for our new publication.
Candidates should be self-starters and motivated, able to work without direct supervision, and have an excellent work ethic and strong communication and interpersonal skills. This is a full-time salaried position that requires a minimum 40 hours per week, although actual work hours may exceed 40 hours per week and require time on weekends.
Note that a successful candidate may work remotely from a home office, thus no geographical restrictions apply so long as reliable Internet and telephone service is available. Otherwise, they may work from our offices in Lake Worth, Florida or Seattle, Washington.
