Living with Conviction Seeks Part-Time Legal Empowerment Navigator
February 20, 2024 | Erin Stewart

Living with Conviction (LwC) seeks one part-time Legal Empowerment Navigator to join our team, equipping and empowering incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals to understand and exercise their post-conviction rights, in partnership with attorneys.

This is a nine-month contract position, 25 hours per week in the LwC Seattle office, with the possibility of becoming full-time based on additional funding. The first 45 days of this position is probationary for both the Navigator and LwC to figure out if this is a mutually good fit. The reason is because this position requires Navigators to become very familiar with the law to help others. We have found that it’s not for everyone.

LwC is a statewide nonprofit organization based in Seattle, Washington that works to secure economic and racial justice with and for marginalized communities, especially formerly incarcerated individuals, through community-driven research, storytelling, and legal empowerment strategies.

LwC’s post-conviction Legal Empowerment Program, grounded in justice-impacted communities, helps people know and claim their post-conviction rights, particularly to request reductions in their court-imposed legal financial obligations (LFOs). LwC also works in service of the statewide effort to realize relief under the Washington State Supreme Court’s State v. Blake decision, for violation of the constitutional rights of hundreds of thousands of people, disproportionately people of color.
