Justice in Aging is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to maintaining a diverse staff and we particularly encourage applications from members of racial and ethnic minority groups, women, the LGBT community, and others whose background may contribute to more effective representation of low-income people and underserved communities.
Justice in Aging seeks an attorney with at least 5 years of experience, expertise in Medicare, and a strong commitment to advancing equity, to join our Health Team. Our work addresses the systemic and intersectional inequities faced by older adults of color, older women, LGBTQ older adults, older adults with disabilities, and older adults who are immigrants or have limited English proficiency. The successful candidate will work to improve Medicare and Medicaid including integration of these programs for low-income older adults who are dually eligible, including work on our Advancing Equity Strategic Initiative.
Justice in Aging uses the power of law and our expertise in health care, economic security, and elder justice to fight senior poverty. We pursue systemic change in law and policy to improve the lives of low-income older adults who experience inequities rooted in historical, persistent, and structural racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and xenophobia. Founded in 1972, we have a rich tradition of successful, high-impact, and strategic advocacy on behalf of the more than 7 million seniors living in poverty nationally. We also run the National Center on Law and Elder Rights through a federal contract with the Administration for Community Living.
Our staff work primarily remotely, with most staff located in Washington DC, the Bay Area, Sacramento, and Los Angeles, as well as some staff across the country. This position can be based remotely from anywhere in the United States. Justice in Aging requires COVID-19 vaccination for all staff, with exemptions available in accordance with federal law.
