We are seeking a Policy, Research, and Development Intern to join our dynamic team of volunteers. Responsibilities include:
- Take the lead in coordinating Hollaback’s work with New Yorkers for Safe Transit, which will include attending monthly meetings, developing testimony, and meeting with legislators.
- Research and identify potential individual donors, board members, or high profile engaged individuals; and
- Do a review of movement building strategies (especially within the violence against women movement) and make recommendations for how to enhance our overall strategy.
This intern will report directly to Emily May, executive director. This position takes place off-site (we do not have an office yet) and regular check-ins are required. The candidate must have good communication skills, a passion for ending street harassment, and live in the NYC area. We currently are accepting applications for fall 2010 and the preferred arrangement is to extend through Spring 2011. The estimated time commitment is 10-20 hours, and the internship is unpaid. If you are interested, please send a resume and cover letter to holla (at) ihollaback.org.
