Development and Program Coordinator

Anticipated State Date:  January 1 to mid January


Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, public interest law center with the mission to increase justice in Georgia through law and policy reform and community engagement. Our vision is a Georgia where the voices of poor people, children and marginalized people are heard and where injustices that no one should endure are resolved. Georgia Appleseed believes in the following values: (1) balanced and objective research, (2) data-driven, pragmatic solutions, (3) collaboration to achieve justice, (4) courage to tackle the hard issues, and (5) the power of pro bono. 


Georgia Appleseed’s current priorities fall in three programmatic areas, serving Georgians state-wide, by (1) dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline (STPP), (2) increasing public safety through relationships of trust and respect among and between community members and law enforcement, and (3) supporting community revitalization through state and local engagement and the implementation of research based recommendations for systemic change.

In addition, this position provides general administrative support to the program and operations of the organization, working with the Executive Director to provide Board and Committee support and the Director of Projects for periodic program evaluation and logistics coordination.
