What is Students for Justice?
Students for Justice is an internship program directed by Claire Ullman and Sandy Radoff for current college students, including those taking gap years, and recent graduates. The program meets two urgent needs –the need to fight voter suppression and apathy, and students’ need for meaningful, safe internship opportunities. Working remotely, Students for Justice interns take on a variety of projects for Reclaim Our Vote*, including communications, outreach, and community organizing all aimed at getting out the vote. There are three tracks: Team Leader, Film, and Marketing. Most interns focus on recruiting, training, and motivating volunteers to use postcards, phone calls, and texts to get out the vote among young people 18-25 as well as contacting some of the 16.5 million Americans who have been purged from the voter rolls, helping them re-establish their voter registration. States targeted include North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona.
Students for Justice is an Initiative of Reclaim Our Vote, a project of the Center for Common Ground, a non-partisan 501(c)(3) based in Virginia. Reclaim our Vote has a stellar record –their outreach achieves a roughly 25% boost in voter registration.
