NBJC Announces Opportunities for Interns and Fellows


NBJC is now accepting applications for 2020


The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is soliciting applications from interested interns and fellows desiring to learn about and lead in the movement to improve the lives of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and same gender loving (SGL) people. The internship/fellowship program provides a unique opportunity to students, and young and emerging professionals, interested in civil rights and LGBTQ equality to explore the unique intersections between and among these related efforts. As the nation’s only civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black LGBTQ/SGL people, including people living with HIV/AIDS, NBJC advocates for policy and practice that address unique needs that are too often neglected and ignored. Throughout the internship experience, interns will gain hands-on experience in the areas of public policy, strategic communications, and constituency/community outreach. The internship/fellowship is ideal for highly motivated, detail oriented individuals seeking to better understand how public policy, advocacy and direct engagement can be used to support the holistic needs of the Black community, including in ways that celebrate the unique contributions made by Black LGBTQ/SGL individuals.
