The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) is a new national organization that promotes equity, opportunity and a dynamic democracy by partnering with grassroots and membership-based organizations around the country to build power and transform the state and local policy landscape. Working with base-building groups in North Carolina, New York, Maryland, Colorado and elsewhere, CPD provides legal and strategic support on state and local legislative campaigns that advance a pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial justice agenda. CPD also collaborates with emerging grassroots groups as they develop and refine their community organizing methodology and internal management, fundraising and communications infrastructure. Through this combination of law and organizing, CPD seeks to generate the upward pressure and momentum necessary to refocus national policy on furthering the values of equity, opportunity and democracy for all.
CPD seeks talented, public interest-oriented 2Ls and 3Ls to participate in our spring Internship in Community Lawyering & Policy Innovation. Through legal and policy research, interns will assist in the development and execution of state and local legislative campaigns taking place across the country and will have the unique opportunity to help launch a new social justice start-up. Interns will be expected to contribute between 10-15 hours/week and will be supervised directly by CPD's founding staff.
Current 2Ls and 3Ls should submit a resume, cover letter and three references to Brittny Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org, with "Internship in Community Lawyering and Policy Innovation" in the subject line. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Candidates should also complete our online form at the time that they submit their applications. You must submit the written materials AND fill out the online form in order for your application to be considered complete.
