Advancement Project is currently seeking candidates for full-time legal internships for Summer 2013 at our national Washington D.C. office. Interns will work closely with our staff of civil rights attorneys and communication experts in creating and implementing strategies to support identified community-organizing efforts around racial justice issues.

Advancement Project is a next generation, multi-racial civil rights organization. We tackle inequity with innovative strategies and strong community alliances. With a national office in Washington, DC and two offices in California, we combine law, communications, policy, and technology to create workable solutions, and achieve systemic change and a racially just democracy. Our efforts are primarily focused in these major areas: education, voter protection, and felony re-enfranchisement. For more information, visit

Candidates must be law students or recent law school graduates. Candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to public service. Some experience in civil rights law, policy advocacy, or community organizing is a plus. Fluency in Spanish is also a plus. Eligibility for public interest grants or work study is not required, though welcome. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
