CURB is looking for Interns!

We are excited to announce that CURB is looking for three interns to join our team! 

CURB offers internships in the following three areas: AdvocacyMedia and Communications and Development. Our internships provide the opportunity to gain experience in research, outreach, grassroots organizing, media campaigns, coalition and movement building, public education, policy advocacy and social justice work. Working directly with the Statewide Coordinators, the interns will have the opportunity to develop leadership and organizing skills while working alongside an amazing group of anti-prison activists. All interns should be committed to racial and social justice, have strong written and verbal communications skills, and be interested in working in a small coalition with limited resources.

“I believe that CURB’s work is truly powerful: the coalition works with multiple organizations to deflect the institutions and systems that have served to disrupt our communities.  CURB believes in the power of grassroots movement-building and public policy change to work towards justice.  CURB believes that jail and prison construction is a divestment from our communities.  Most importantly, CURB aims to strengthen communities by bringing loved ones back to their families andmaking necessary rehabilitative and educational services accessible.”

~Nicole A. Powell, Former CURB Intern and CURB Monthly Sustainer
