The National Partnership for Women & Families promotes fairness in the workplace, reproductive health and rights, access to quality affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. We believe that actions speak louder than words, and for four decades we have fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families. Our reproductive health team advocates in Congress and in the Executive Branch for better reproductive health policy and for judicial and other executive nominees who support women's reproductive health and rights.
The 2014 Fall Reproductive Health Policy Intern will be a key part of the reproductive health policy team. Interns get hands-on experience advocating for policies to advance reproductive rights, including comprehensive sex education, contraception access, quality maternity care, and abortion rights. Interns independently and as part of a team take on projects such as: researching and analyzing national and state policy initiatives; researching, drafting, and editing advocacy and outreach materials; assisting in publication of the Women's Health Policy Report, an email summary of reproductive health news coverage distributed to over 80,000 subscribers; and providing general support to the reproductive health policy team. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend coalition meetings, briefings, hearings, and other events on Capitol Hill and around Washington, D.C.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate excellent research ability, strong written and verbal communications skills, commitment to reproductive health policy, ability to work independently, and attention to detail. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.
The internship is unpaid, but is available for course credit and may be full-time or part-time.
We welcome graduate and undergraduate students to submit a cover letter stating your interest in the position and your availability (days/hours per week), resume, and a brief writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 2014 Fall Reproductive Health Policy Internship.
