Clinical Social Worker

Clinical and Forensic Social Worker

The Sentencing and Parole Project (SPP) is a non-profit organization that prepares Enhanced Pre-Sentence Reports (EPSR) for Black people marginalized by poverty and racial inequality. 

EPSRs (also referred to as Impact Race and Culture Assessments (IRCAs)) are culturally responsive reports that provide the courts, parole and immigration boards with a holistic understanding of the lived experience of Black people to assist with fair decisions. The work of the SPP seeks to address racism in the justice system.

At this time, we are seeking a full-time Clinical Social Worker to join our growing organization.
