Free Migration Project is looking for a full-time undergraduate intern to support our work with the Shut Down Berks Coalition and other immigrant rights campaigns this summer. Candidates should be passionate about advocating for immigrants’ rights and challenging the current immigration system. The position is unpaid and anticipated to last from late May or early June through mid-August. Remote participation for part or all of the summer is likely, depending on the status of city or state shut-down orders and our assessment of safety level. Spanish fluency is an advantage.
The intern will help educate the public about the Berks family detention center, our efforts to obtain freedom for families living in sanctuary churches, and other public deportation defense campaigns; assist with campaign-related social media outreach and digital engagement; and support legal advocacy relating to the campaigns.
