POSITION SUMMARY:

In 2018, out of tragedy, March For Our Lives (often colloquially referred to as M4OL, MFOL, or simply March) was born.

We turned a moment into a movement with 300 local chapters dedicated to eradicating gun violence in all forms. 

The Legal Team at March For Our Lives was formed at the urging of dedicated students who saw a roadmap for long-term constitutional change proven by the NRA and a pathway for replicating that model in MFOL’s own judicial program. Since its inception two years ago, the team has taken strong stances in 2nd amendment jurisprudence, pioneering storytelling amicus briefs, signing on to coalition briefs, and even participating in active litigation. 

The Staff Attorney leads this team that works to defend the constitutional rights of young people. The Attorney will define the long-term legal strategy of MFOL and maintain critical partnership and coalition relationships, including with external organizations, scholars, law firms, and advocacy partners.
