The Center for Sexual Justice is looking for motivated interns to help fight the unjust sex laws facing queer people and sexual minorities.
The Center for Sexual Justice advocates for fair legal treatment of sexually diverse populations and encourages community building among sexual minorities and families impacted by the criminal justice system. More specifically, we are focusing on how queer and sexual minority populations are affected by sex laws and subsequently sex offender legislation. We want to help foster a community of queer people impacted by sex offender laws, and reach out to LGBT/queer organizations and populations to educate them around realities of sex laws and how queer people specifically are disproportionately and specially targeted.
We are looking for an intern to help us establish ourselves and grow as an organization. This is a great opportunity for students or graduates to participate in non-profit management, advocacy, activism, and creative and collaborative projects. We are open to defining the role of interns as we go, and we want to work closely with a bright mind with a passion for social change, queer populations, and criminal justice issues. Some duties will include helping with social media, including Twitter and Facebook, researching current events, and writing blog posts and essays, as well as collaborating on our broader mission and long-term projects. Interns may be local to our staff in Los Angeles, Washington, DC, or long-distance.
Applicants may submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cover letter should include the applicant’s availability as well as information about the nature of experience the applicant hopes to gain during the internship. The writing sample should be between 3 and 10 pages.
We look forward to working with you and collaborating on this important social justice issue.
