There is a great new opportunity in the field of reproductive justice and social change available to undergraduate students across the country through the Civil Liberties and Public Policy program, a reproductive justice educational organization, located at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps (RRASC) is a 10-week paid summer internship program where undergraduates work at reproductive rights and social justice organizations around the country. Participating organizations work on a wide array of issues, including reproductive health, economic justice, immigrant rights, rights of indigenous peoples, LGBTQ rights, human rights, intimate partner abuse, and prison abolition.

As part of our commitment to the mission of reproductive justice in supporting under-resourced organizers and activists, we are especially interested in extending this opportunity to students at colleges and universities in the South and/or red states.

More specific information about the program is below, and please feel free to contact me personally or our general RRASC email rrasc@hampshire.edu if you have any questions or would like to talk further.

The internship stipend is $3500.

Application deadline: February 1, 2016

Eligibility requirements:

  • Must currently be an undergraduate student at a US college or university.
  • Must not be graduating in Spring/Summer 2016.
  • Must be able to attend the CLPP Conference at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA from April 7-10, 2016 (CLPP will cover all travel costs for students who live outside of Western Massachusetts).
