Interned: Trust Women
"There aren't many internships in reproductive justice or social justice in our part of the country. I was fortunate to find an internship with Trust Women, where I interned for two semesters. Following my social justice internship, I was offered and accepted a job with Trust Women as an Advocacy and Outreach Director. I am currently working in Wichita, leading a pilot leadership program that includes nine interns from across the country. My advice: don't be afraid to look for non-traditional arrangements for internships--mine worked out really well!"
Caitlin Campbell, Interned: The Oklahoma Group
"If we as a global society fail to pursue social justice initiatives, we will fail. An internship in social justice, for me, is essential in moving forward as an advocate of human rights and equality. Since I plan to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector, I think that this internship provides an important opportunity to get my feet wet and better understand how organizations working for social justice function. I hope to learn about local initiatives for social justice. Sometimes in Oklahoma, we forget the very important local work that changes the lives of people in our communities for the better. "
