About POGO

External Affairs Associate

Founded in 1981, the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is a nonpartisan independent watchdog that works to expose waste, corruption, abuse of power, and other instances where the government fails to serve the public. We champion reforms to achieve a more effective, ethical, and accountable federal government that safeguards constitutional principles. POGO has a $6 million annual budget that supports three projects and a staff of 35 employees.

The Constitution Project (TCP) at POGO works to combat the increasing partisan divide regarding our constitutional rights and liberties and is looking for an External Affairs Associate.  For over 20 years, TCP has brought together people of diverse experiences and political philosophies to forge consensus-based solutions to some of the most difficult constitutional questions of the day. The External Affairs Associate will take the lead in building and managing a diverse coalition to: defend the courts, provide better access to justice, check overbroad government surveillance, and support secure elections.
