We are an all-volunteer organization of hackers in the public  
interest. There is no budget for hiring people. But we do have  
volunteers! Some of the volunteers perhaps have experience with user  
experience design.

What you wrote about it being difficult to make trade-offs across use  
cases seems wise. My strategy is iterative: deploy something to users  
and then try to learn from them to feedback into the next iteration.

Another part of my strategy is to listen carefully to other people's  
ideas, but not to let what they say stand in the way of the first  
part of the strategy. ;-)
