The Drug Policy Alliance is the leading organization in the U.S. working to end the drug war, repair its harms, and build a non-punitive, equitable, and regulated drug market. We envision a world that embraces the full humanity of people, regardless of their relationship to drugs. We advocate that the regulation of drugs be grounded in evidence, health, equity, and human rights. In collaboration with other movements and at every policy level, we change laws, advance justice, and save lives.
We need creative, innovative professionals to implement our strategic priorities:
Our culture includes a casual work environment, a full benefits package, competitive pay, flexible work arrangements, and more. We have 40 staff across the US. This includes New York, California, and Washington DC. Our annual operating budget is approximately $12 million. Join our team!

I got to do it all while learning alongside some of the most brilliant, thoughtful advocates who would later become my colleagues.”Aliza Cohen, Research Coordinator, Former Intern
