About the Position
The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland (ACLU-MD) seeks students passionate about race equity, civil rights, and civil liberties for a summer 2022 internship. The ACLU-MD is a private, nonprofit organization that defends the civil rights and civil liberties of Marylanders through litigation, policy advocacy, community engagement, and strategic communications. The office is collegial; the work is challenging, varied, and rewarding. Among ACLU affiliates, the ACLU-MD is known for its commitment to racial justice and combating structural inequality. For three decades, our staff has been in the forefront of this struggle in Maryland – disrupting patterns of racial discrimination in law enforcement and the criminal justice system through litigation and advocacy, working to advance equity in public education, promoting racial fairness in elections, and safeguarding the individual autonomy of people across the state regardless of immigration status, gender, or other marginalized identities.
The ACLU-MD takes great pride in having an extraordinarily broad agenda among ACLU affiliates. Beyond the defense of First Amendment rights for which the ACLU is best known, racial justice is a top priority for our affiliate, including expanding First Amendment protections to people and groups who have not enjoyed equal free speech rights in the past. Currently, the ACLU-MD is working on cutting-edge projects addressing police abuse, securing immigrants’ rights, advancing minority voting rights, reforming parole policies and practices, and challenging government surveillance. In addition, our current docket comprises cases in almost every area of constitutional and civil rights law, including freedom of speech, freedom of religion, discrimination, privacy, police misconduct, the right to vote, due process, LGBTQ+ rights, the rights of incarcerated Marylanders, and access to public records.
