Students: Intern at DRCNet and Help Stop the Drug War!

Submitted by David Borden on (Issue #502)
Drug War Issues

Want to help end the "war on drugs," while earning college credit too? Apply for a DRCNet internship for this fall semester (or spring) and you could come join the team and help us fight the fight!

DRCNet (also known as "Stop the Drug War") has a strong record of providing substantive work experience to our interns -- you won't spend the summer doing filing or running errands, you will play an integral role in one or more of our exciting programs. Options for work you can do with us include coalition outreach as part of the campaign to repeal the drug provision of the Higher Education Act, and to expand that effort to encompass other bad drug laws like the similar provisions in welfare and public housing law; blogosphere/web outreach; media research and outreach; web site work (research, writing, technical); possibly other areas. If you are chosen for an internship, we will strive to match your interests and abilities to whichever area is the best fit for you.

While our internships are unpaid, we will reimburse you for metro fare, and DRCNet is a fun and rewarding place to work. To apply, please send your resume to David Guard at [email protected], and feel free to contact us at (202) 293-8340. We hope to hear from you!

Interns built the pyramids.
An apothegm that says it all. DRC should recognize the sham of "interns" as a bogus status ritual for uppper middle class kids ignorant of the rentier system they will be slaves for under the guise of a "liberal" drug reform site. Your use of young and willing drones who can work for free while subsidzed by neurotic parents must be shown for the ripp-off it is.

Uh, do you want us to stop the drug war or not? It kind of sounds like not.

Interns who have worked here in the past have found it a great experience, and some have gone on to find work in our profession. Their decisions to intern here were made completely by choice, un-coerced by us.
