Global Exchange is an international human rights organization dedicated to promoting environmental, political, and social justice around the world. Since our founding in 1988, we have been striving to increase global awareness among the US public while building international partnerships around the world.
Global Exchange is tackling some of the most critical issues of our time and focusing on the root causes of injustice— from challenging corporate power and greed to oil addiction and global climate change, from the exploitation of the current global economy to the creation of the local green economy and elevating the rights of communities and nature to tackling corporate campaign financing. Our campaigns inspire people across the U.S. and around the world to resist injustice, envision alternatives, and take action.
Global Exchange programs engage grassroots and indigenous communities, elected officials, international institutions, and community leaders around the globe to address the root causes of injustice. Our work employs diverse strategies to achieve sustainable and structural change; our programs work toward policy changes and corporate accountability through grassroots education and action. As an activist resource center, we advance our vision by working to empower people locally while connecting them globally.
Our current active progams include: Community & Nature's Rights, Economic Activism for Palestine, Elect Democracy, Mexico and Human Rights, Reality Tours (Middle-East, Latin America, Africa/Asia, and Cuba), Midwest Green Economy Leadership Training, Fair Trade Cocoa, Fair Trade Stores (In San Francisco, Berkeley, and Washington D.C.) Green Festivals, and Stop Funding War (in partnership with our sister organization Code Pink Women For Peace)
Global Exchange offers internships year-round we accept applications for the fall, winter, and spring on a rolling deadline basis. Get more information and view currently open positions here: www.globalexchange.org/internships
