CDP’s Launch
As of July 2019, CDP is excited to separate from the Urban Justice Center and launch as an independent organization. Our name will be new, but our work to strengthen grassroots movements and dismantle racial, social & economic oppression remains just as strong. Anyone who joins CDP prior to the launch will continue their employment uninterrupted, with the same salary & comparable conditions.

Please note: Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unfortunately not able to respond to emails following up on previously-submitted applications. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be notified by email.

We strongly encourage applications from people with lived experiences in the communities we serve.

CDP provides legal, participatory research and policy support to strengthen the work of grassroots and community-based groups in New York City to dismantle racial, economic and social oppression.
