About NARAL Pro-Choice America

For more than 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and

chapters have fought to protect and expand reproductive freedom —including access to

abortion and contraception — for every body. We are powered by our more than 2.5 million

members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 7 in 10

Americans who believe every person should have the freedom to make the best decision for

themselves about if, when, and how to raise a family.

As the oldest and largest national membership organization primarily focused on advocating for

abortion access, we organize and mobilize, galvanizing millions of people to take action to

defend reproductive freedom, and shining a spotlight of accountability on bad actors who work

to impose their ideological agenda on others. We also work to elect champions for reproductive

freedom and advance state and federal legislation to safeguard it.

Summary

NARAL Pro-Choice America is hiring for multiple positions in our internship and fellowship

program. Our program will help you gain real-world, practical job skills to prepare you for your

career. As one of the leading advocacy organizations in the country, you'll be learning from the

best - and leaving your mark on the organization as well. Our interns contribute significantly to

the fight to protect and expand reproductive freedom for every body.

We are looking for fiercely pro-choice candidates with a strong commitment to reproductive

freedom. If you're interested in policy, politics, non-profit work, and/or reproductive freedom, we

want to hear from you!
