The Director's Intern will be placed in one of the following Initiatives:
#VoteTogether is changing the culture of voting and increasing participating by making democracy an opportunity for community celebration.
At #VoteTogether, we believe that our democracy works best when all perspectives are included and all eligible voters cast ballots. #VoteTogether is a national campaign to increase voter participation by making voting fun and celebratory. At thousands of nonpartisan events hosted at and near polling places across the country, #VoteTogether partners bring together families, friends and neighbors in a celebration of civic engagement and the act of voting. #VoteTogether events—including block parties, BBQs, and parades—took place during early voting and on Election Day.
Building the next generation of leaders in the movement to combat sexual assault by engaging young men and changing culture on college campuses.
Launched in September 2014, It’s On Us is a national movement to end sexual assault. The campaign was launched following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault that noted the importance of engaging everyone in the conversation to end sexual violence.
It’s On Us asks everyone – students, community leaders, parents, organizations, and companies – to step up and realize that the conversation changes with us. It’s a rallying cry to be a part of the solution. The campaign combines innovative creative content and grassroots organizing techniques to spark conversation on a national and local level.
Uniting and empowering all women to turn their passion into action by breaking down intersectional barriers that prevent the diverse women of the United States from achieving equality.
The United State of Women is a national organization for any woman who sees that we need a different America for all women to survive and thrive — and wants to work collectively to achieve it.
USOW amplifies the work of organizations and individuals at the forefront of the fight for women’s equality, and provides tools, access and connections that help women see and step into their power to break down the barriers that hold women back.
2018 Intern Description
Working on Civic Nation’s #VoteTogether initiative is an exciting experience where I get to see a campaign built from the ground up. #VoteTogether aims to put the fun back in voting by planning hundreds of voting celebrations around the country. These celebrations take place at polling locations and are open to everyone–voters and nonvoters alike. In addition to bringing communities together and creating positive voting experiences, our analysis shows that celebrations like these are a cost-effective way to increase voter participation.
