Come join the campaign to reclaim democracy for the people by fighting for free and fair elections, and accountability for presidential corruption and abuse of power, in the summer of 2023! Free Speech For People, a national nonpartisan nonprofit organization, was founded in 2010 after the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. FEC decision. We’re working to renew our democracy and reclaim our Constitution for We the People, not big money and corporate interests.
Who are you? We’re looking for rising 2Ls or 3Ls who are dedicated to public interest work, write well, and are excited to work for a non-profit leading cutting-edge legal initiatives. Con Law (especially First Amendment) is a plus but not essential. In rare cases, we will also consider undergraduates.
What will you do? You might be researching impact litigation, or working on an amicus brief, or drafting legislation, or creating educational resources. Or something totally different. But you definitely won’t just be doing doc review.
When would the internship be? The internship is generally full-time for 8-10 weeks, but we would consider a split summer for an exceptional candidate
