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.

We're looking for someone who...

● Has completed at least one year of law school

● Earned a four-year college degree

● Has experience in Westlaw and legal research

● Has excellent writing and research skills

● Has excellent organizational skills that help you work on multiple

projects at once, meet deadlines consistently in a fast-paced

environment, and work well with others

NARAL Pro-Choice America does not discriminate on the basis of race,

ethnicity, national origin, religion, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual

orientation, gender identity and expression, age, disability, marital status,

veteran status, or political affiliation. Candidates with backgrounds, identities,

and experiences that are historically underrepresented in reproductive

freedom nonprofits are encouraged to apply.

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!
