EJUSA is a national criminal justice reform organization working to end the death penalty, strengthen programs that help crime survivors address trauma and rebuild their lives, and promote constructive responses to violence. The trauma advocacy initiative works in select cities to advocate for better access to trauma care for people harmed by crime and violence, as well as nationally to promote a trauma-responsive justice system and shift the national conversation around violence, trauma, racial justice, and mass incarceration.
Interns will work closely with the director of EJUSA’s trauma advocacy initiative in the following areas:
- Research: keeping on top of current news, academic research, and reports related to trauma-informed work, racial justice, and violence prevention; map current news and research in EJUSA’s database; update and maintain data about current leaders and programs in the field
- Writing: work on online blog posts; write summaries of research and reports; note-taking
- Data input and analysis: Input and review data from trauma-informed policing training program to generate reports
This is an unpaid internship. Course credit may be available. Interns should be located near Boston, New York City, or in New Jersey, but much of the work can be done remotely.
