Justice in Aging seeks an attorney with at least three years’ experience and a strong commitment to health equity and racial justice to join our organization in California.
The successful candidate will join our respected and effective health team to ensure equitable access to health care and long-term services and supports for low-income older adults in California. Our work seeks to address 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 attorney in this position will play a key role in providing training and technical assistance to legal services attorneys as well as aging and disability network professionals. The attorney will also advocate directly on Medi-Cal and Medicare issues with state and local policy makers to improve access and affordability for low-income older Californians. This position provides an exciting opportunity to advance the goals outlined in California’s recently released Master Plan for Aging to ensure all older adults have access to the health care and services they need to age at home and in the community.
The attorney can be based in one of our two California offices (Los Angeles or Oakland) or work fully remotely from anywhere in California. All of Justice in Aging’s staff are currently working remotely and will be doing so for the duration of the pandemic.

Justice in Aging is committed to maintaining a diverse staff and we particularly encourage applications from members of racial and ethnic minority groups, women, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, and others whose background may contribute to more effective representation of low-income people and underserved communities.
