Consistent Life Network Internships
INTERNSHIP: FINDING NONVIOLENT ALTERNATIVES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD
The Consistent Life Network is looking for interns to contribute to our work defending life against the threats of abortion, the death penalty, euthanasia, poverty, racism, and war. We specifically want interns for our Grassroots Defunding: Finding Alternatives to Planned Parenthood Initiative, which seeks to de-fund Planned Parenthood at the local level by promoting alternative providers who offer the same actual healthcare services PP does but do not do abortions.
We are currently offering four internships with the Grassroots Defunding initiative:
Internship: Researching health facilities on the web
The intern would search for health facilities within a 5-mile radius of about 70 Planned Parenthood centers, to identify facilities that cater to low-income people with the kinds of non-abortion services that PP offers. These are the PP centers for which other nearby alternatives are not yet found. The goal would be to submit a report on these facilities’ services and locations.
For this position, we need people who are committed to defending human life from violence, organized and detail-oriented, and skilled in online research. Past experience with pro-life and healthcare organizations, as well as research projects, is preferred.
Internship: Coordinating with pro-life organizations
The intern would contact an array of pro-life organizations to inform them about the Grassroots Defunding initiative and get them involved in supporting the initiative.
We need people who are committed to defending human life from violence, organized and detail-oriented, and skilled at cold calling and networking. Past experience with pro-life activism, as well as outreach, networking, and cold calling work is preferred.
Internship: Researching mammogram providers
The intern would call different Planned Parenthood centers to find out where they refer women for mammograms (contrary to perception, PP centers very rarely do mammograms). We will add information on these mammogram providers to the Grassroots website, so activists can find ways to direct women to the providers so they never have contact with PP.
We need people who are committed to defending human life from violence, organized and detail-oriented, and comfortable with cold calling. When calling the PP centers, the intern should be prepared to encounter resistance or hostility. Past experience with pro-life activism, as well as outreach and cold calling work, is preferred.
Internship: Lobbying members of Congress
The intern would lobby members of Congress who represent districts where no Community Health Centers exist to serve as alternatives to Planned Parenthood. The goal is to create such centers in these areas to provide non-abortion services. This lobbying effort will also involve working with other organizations, particularly pro-life ones.
We need people who are committed to defending human life from violence, organized and detail-oriented, and skilled at political lobbying. Past experience with pro-life activism and lobbying, as well as outreach, networking, and cold calling work, is preferred.
Typical internship length is 3-6 months. Paid positions may be available. College students are especially encouraged to apply.
