Description

The NCH Homeless Civil Rights Internship is available to students who are interested in helping address homelessness. To be considered for this internship, you should be able to multi-task, be able to work independently, and possess superior research and written communication skills. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience with direct service to homeless/low income populations, writing promotional materials, event planning, and digital and social media writing. As an intern, you will assist with an advocacy effort to develop alternatives to efforts to make it illegal to be homeless and assist with updating information on the “You Don’t Need a Home to Vote” campaign to increase access to the ballot box for those experiencing homelessness. By tracking data across the country and at various locales, you will be expected to produce reports, summaries, and articles on particular efforts to criminalize homelessness, trends, successes, or model efforts to reduce law enforcement in the distribution of social services. You will also work to build partners in field sites and get that message out to elected officials, community leaders, and the general public track as well as report on the aftermath of the pandemic on those experiencing homelessness and the future of shelter as a Civil Rights issue. This internship is offered on a fully remote basis.
