The U.S. Department of Justice is the principal federal agency charged with enforcing federally-protected civil and constitutional rights. The Civil Rights Division's mission comprises two prongs: (1) vigorous enforcement of the criminal laws prohibiting civil rights abuses, including "color of law" violations by state officers, trafficking in humans, conspiracy to violate federally protected rights, and criminal interference with housing rights; and (2) defending individuals' federal civil rights through a panoply of means including civil litigation, consent orders, settlements, technical assistance, public outreach, and education programs.
The U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, is seeking up to three experienced attorneys for the position of Trial Attorney in the Voting Section in Washington, D.C. The Civil Rights Division is primarily responsible for enforcing federal statutes and executive orders that prohibit, among other things, unlawful discrimination in voting, education, employment, housing, police services, public accommodations and facilities, and federally funded and conducted programs. The Voting Section enforces federal statutes designed to safeguard the right to vote. These statutes include the Voting Rights Act; the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act; the National Voter Registration Act; and the Help America Vote Act.
All Civil Rights Division offices are ideally situated near metro stations or other public transportation, and are conveniently accessible to restaurants, museums and other D.C. area attractions. Most jobs in the Division offer alternative work schedules and other family friendly opportunities. Most employees who commute by public transportation are provided a transit subsidy benefit.
