About People For

People For the American Way is a national progressive advocacy organization that inspires and mobilizes Americans to defend freedom, justice, and democracy from those who threaten to take them away. For more than four decades, we have been dedicated to making the promise of America real for every American and have worked toward a vision of a vibrant America where basic rights and freedoms are upheld for everyone, not just the wealthy and the powerful. 

The affiliated People For the American Way Foundation conducts research, legal, and education work on behalf of First Amendment freedoms and democratic values; provides support and training to the newest generation of progressive leaders though the Young Elected Officials Network; and carries out nonpartisan voter education and  civic participation.


People For the American Way and People For the American Way Foundation have a national office in Washington, D.C. as well as staff who work in other states remotely.

Members of our staff work on an important mission in an exciting, professional and collaborative environment. We are pleased to offer excellent benefits, including medical and dental plans, life and disability insurance, 401k plan and generous holiday and leave benefits.
