Internships
"Through my internship I got to learn all I could want about organizing and the labor movement. From orchestrating mass mailings to meeting with city councilmen, I got to be part of every step of the process, and got invaluable experience. Plus, it's nice to work at a non-profit small enough that you become friends with everyone in the office, and I really felt comfortable asking my co-workers any questions I had."
- Hannah McConnaughay, former summer intern
