The Justice Project of Washington DC
The Justice Project, a 501c(4) organization, works with its sister organization, The Justice Project Education Fund, a 501c(3) organization, to address unfairness and inaccuracy in the American criminal justice system. Together, the organizations develop, coordinate, and implement integrated national and state-based campaigns involving public education, litigation, legislative and non-legislative policy to reform the criminal justice system, with particular focus on the capital punishment system. Both organizations are located in the same office space, and interns will work for both organizations simultaneously throughout their tenure. All interns will gain a diverse experience during their time at TJP/EdFund. Interns will contribute to the daily operations of the office and will develop and implement research work based on the needs of other members of the staff. Interns will find some opportunities to attend briefings and meetings, as well as to make important contacts. Most importantly, interns will become part of the TJP/EdFund team, working with a handful of talented individuals on integrated campaigns to help address problems of unfairness and inaccuracy in the criminal justice system in this country. Interns will assist in both programmatic work and marketing & development work. Thus, qualified candidates must be able to adapt to a fast-paced work environment.
