The ACLU of Montana (founded in 1972) is an affiliate of the national ACLU (founded in 1920) and operates as a private, non-profit organization.  We are the state’s largest and most influential civil rights organization, combining litigation, policy advocacy, communications, and organizing tactics to promote individual rights and liberties. We cover the broad waterfront of civil rights issues, including the right to privacy (including reproductive rights), voting rights, criminal-legal reform, and 2S-LGBTQIA rights, with a particular emphasis on our strategic priority areas of Indigenous Justice and decriminalization of poverty. The ACLU of Montana envisions a fair, equitable, and free Montana that welcomes and celebrates diversity of all kinds. In our Montana, everybody is treated with dignity and respect, and has equal access to rights and freedoms.

The ACLU of Montana maintains a fast-paced and friendly work environment, with a current staff of 12 spread across the state of Montana.  


ACLU of Montana is an equal opportunity employer. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We believe that having a board, staff, and volunteer base with diverse personal and professional backgrounds enhances our ability to meet our mission and creates an environment where all members of our community can thrive.

We strongly encourage applications from people of color, Indigenous people, immigrants, women, people with disabilities, individuals who identify as Two-Spirit or LGBTQIA+, those who have been formerly incarcerated or are currently under supervision, and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups. We are building a team reflective of the diverse communities that we fight in partnership with and on behalf of. All qualified applicants who share this vision and who have a desire to contribute to our mission are encouraged to apply.

The ACLU of Montana does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, faith, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, tribal affiliation, disability, veteran status, or record of arrest or conviction. We are committed to providing a work environment free from discrimination and harassment and one that honors and promotes a culture of equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging. We are engaging in ongoing internal equity work, with an emphasis on anti-racism and anti-colonialism

We commit to collaborating to develop thoughtful training programs and opportunities and onboarding processes with eventual hires to identify individual growth areas relating to job responsibilities, while empowering existing knowledge and skills.
