The Drug Policy Alliance has an immediate opening for a Communications Intern.
Drug Policy Alliance
The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization seeking to dramatically alter drug policy in the U.S. and around the world. DPA fights for drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights. Our work is grounded in the principles of harm reduction, an approach that seeks to minimize the negative consequences of both drug use and drug policies. DPA's work encompasses a wide array of policy issues, including:
In the last 20 years, DPA has expanded from its New York headquarters to include eight offices, 60 plus staff, an annual operating budget of approximately $12 million, over 35,000 dues-paying members and nearly 350,000 online subscribers. We have a solid track record of success at the local, state, and federal levels and consistent visibility in prominent media and policy circles. (For more information, see www.drugpolicy.org)
Based in DPA's New York City headquarters, the Communications Intern will be part of DPA's Communications team and report to the Publications Manager.
Though much of the internship is administrative, there is tremendous opportunity to learn about various aspects of effective communications campaigns. In return, the volunteer will have the chance to work with a highly skilled and fun team of committed people. Arrangements can be made for community service or course credit. Internship schedules are flexible, totaling 15-30 hours per week.
This is an unpaid internship. Local transit stipend provided.
