Position Description

Established in 1853, the Milwaukee Turners are the oldest civic organization in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and over the last two centuries have labored to build a more just society through the ideals of creating a "Sound Mind in a Sound Body". The Milwaukee Turners’ guiding and foundational principles of “liberty against all oppression; tolerance against all fanaticism, reason against all superstition, and justice against all exploitation” are embedded into formal programming endeavors which connect the organization’s 170-year history and make them viable in the twenty-first century. The Research and Advocacy Associate will support the “Confronting Mass Incarceration” initiative by conducting research, critically assessing policy reform efforts, and contributing to projects dedicated to challenging the systemic inequalities in Wisconsin’s carceral system.
