Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities – part-time staff attorney position

January 7, 2015

Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities (QT) is seeking highly qualified applicants for a part-time Staff Attorney position (position description is below). QT is an independent nonprofit that was created in 2001 to advance the interests of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in DC. We are an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identify, political belief, creed, national origin, marital status, or disability.

QT has 3 primary areas of focus – lay advocacy, monitoring and legal. These programs work collaboratively to promote improvements in services and supports for people with disabilities as well as local policies, practices and legislation. QT’s legal program is staffed by a Legal Director and Senior Attorney. We provide high quality, effective, holistic legal services and supports to uphold people’s rights to self-determination and well-being. Services include a balance of individual and systemic work fighting for equal rights; ensuring people live, work, and play in the most integrated settings; and seeking inclusion on all decisions influencing the life of people with DD. We’re looking for an attorney who will embrace our vision of a community where everyone is respected and valued, belongs and contributes, and shapes his or her own present and future — and who will provide leadership to creatively use legal and advocacy tools to help turn our vision into reality. This is a great opportunity for someone with excellent legal and advocacy tools, and a deep belief in what people with DD could do if given the opportunity.

If you are interested please send an email with a resume, writing sample and references to HR@dcqualitytrust.org. Also please feel free to forward this to others who you think may be potential applicants. While the position is open until filled, we will interview qualified candidates immediately.
