Description

The ACLU Racial and Economic Justice Internship is available to students who are enrolled in law school or a graduate program in Public Policy, Political Science, Journalism, or a related field. To be considered for this internship, you should demonstrate a strong interest in issues related to racial and economic justice and have experience working with or in allyship with Indigenous communities, Tribes, and/or Native-led organizations or movements. As an intern, you will participate in legal and policy work to advance the goals of the program, including: Education Equity, Housing and Homelessness, Indigenous Justice, and Assets and Income. You may have the opportunity to work across the department’s six broad program areas, including in the areas of Criminal Justice, Immigrants’ Rights, and Democracy & Civic Engagement. Interns will conduct legal and factual research and may be asked to draft legal memoranda, portions of court documents, advocacy letters, analyses and articles, and pre-litigation demand letters. When possible and as applicable, interns attend appellate and trial court arguments, case management meetings, and depositions. Additionally, interns may be asked to investigate facts and possible legal claims arising from intakes received via the Civil Liberties Hotline.
