WORK AT RDI

The Rights & Democracy Institute (RDI) was founded in 2016 to advance human rights and strengthen our democracy through grassroots organizing, transformative policy and supporting the development of a new generation of leaders from rural communities across Vermont and New Hampshire. We recognize that there are powerful forces that strategically use racism and hate to divide our communities, but we know that when we all come together we can build a strong multiracial democracy in which everyone can thrive. The Rights & Democracy Project (RAD) is our sibling 501(c)(4) organization.

Rights & Democracy is an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to equity and inclusion. Core to our work is an understanding of the multiple and intersecting ways in which society is constructed to disadvantage and marginalize people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, indigenous peoples, women, low-income people, people with disabilities, previously incarcerated people, and others. We believe that underrepresented and marginalized communities must be centered in the work that we do and we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or from these communities.

Rights & Democracy does not discriminate against or tolerate harassment of any employee because of race, color, gender identity, religion, creed, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, physical or mental disability, any other basis prohibited by law, or protected activity under the anti-discrimination statutes.
