HRC summer internship applications due Friday

WASHINGTON -- Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is looking for motivated students and recent graduates to undertake summer internships in Washington, D.C.

Founded in 1980, HRC now represents more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide. Achievements include successfully fighting the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2004 and 2006, garnering congressional votes to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and the organization remains at the forefront of the marriage equality fight today.

Internships are offered in many fields, including graphic design, marketing, finance, membership outreach, global engagement and event coordination. All interns will be exposed to the daily work of HRC and can develop skills in their chosen field by working closely with their supervisor. This is a volunteer program, however, there are a limited number of scholarships available for individuals who may not have the financial means to participate, but can demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equality in their own lives.

Applications close March 28. For more information, click HERE.
