Internship Program, Winter 2018 The candidate will work with the Immigration Policy Internship. Interns learn many of the basic skills it takes to be a policy professional at a progressive nonprofit from a front-row seat. Interns are intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of the Immigration Policy team. They provide research support on a variety of issues related to immigration in the United States, help craft messaging and advocacy positions for organization, track important stories about the issue, and assist with events and organizational tasks. Should have an interest in helping to promote positive immigration reform and better the lives of all Americans, immigrant and citizen alike. Intimate knowledge of the field is not explicitly necessary, but some familiarity with immigration policy or advocacy is a plus. Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for the website. Law students are considered. Note: Part-time students are accepted, but interns must be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week. Duration: January - March
