Dream Corps JUSTICE Fall Internship
Program Dream Corps JUSTICE internship program is….
A 12-week internship program for young people to gain professional experience in advocacy and policymaking for the Dream Corps JUSTICE, the criminal justice reform department of a social justice organization closing prison doors and opening doors of opportunity. We bring people together across racial, social, and partisan lines to create a future with freedom and dignity for all.
We are seeking a Policy Intern for the Fall of 2021. The intern will work with our organizers, policy team, National Empathy Network and National Director in supporting dynamic federal and state campaigns to keep people out of prison, improve prison conditions, and bring people home. This is a diverse and compassionate team, and we are looking for interns who will be part of a supportive, creative, and collaborative work environment. We value lived experience, and encourage people who have been impacted by mass incarceration to apply for these positions.
Our Policy Intern will review federal and state legislation, research transformational policies, draft a variety of advocacy documents, and play an integral role in our organization’s ability to respond to important, evolving criminal justice issues. This is not a busy-work internship! We are looking for strong writers who already have familiarity with the criminal justice system, through either lived, professional, or academic experience.
Given existing COVID travel protocols, this will be a remote position, and we welcome applicants from anywhere in the United States.
