CODEPINK's Los Angeles office is looking for interns! CODEPINK is a women-initiated social justice movement fighting to end global militarism and wage global peace. Our grassroots nonprofit group is committed to ending war (especially drone warfare), demanding accountability for the Iraq war, preventing war (on countries like Syria and Iran), and working for human rights for all (especially in Occupied Palestine and for prisoners in Guantanamo prison). We are also active supporters of other social justice issues--from environmental campaigns to money out of politics to supporting whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning and women's rights. As an intern, you will participate in local and national campaigns in collaboration with the fabulous CODEPINK staff. Both in and outside of the office, you will find yourself actively engaged in creative grassroots organizing and social outreach. Specific tasks may include: conducting research on critical sociopolitical issues; writing PINK TANK blog posts; creating posters, fliers, and gigantic banners; attending meetings, rallies, and demonstrations; participating in staff conference calls; as well as phone banking and data entry. Video editing skills are a huge plus. Anyone dedicated to peace is encouraged to apply! POC, LGBTQ persons and people with disabilites particularly encouraged.
