NETWORK is a women-led nonprofit membership organization that uses Catholic social justice teachings about economic, racial and social equity to lobby the federal government for legislative changes. Its bimonthly magazine, NETWORK Connection, educates members on political issues and updates on legislation. NETWORK’s issues have included a living wage, health care benefits for all, fair treatment for immigrants, fair trade, global peace and sustainable development.
NETWORK calls its internship the associate program. The organization hopes to offer its associates a faith-based advocacy experience and accepts two lobby associates and one field associate each year. Interns work closely with full-time staff members, exploring justice issues in depth and learning how to organize for legislative advocacy. They attend press conferences, contact Congressional members and staff, and work with other advocacy, civil rights and labor groups.
Open to college graduates from all faiths and backgrounds interested in political advocacy. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age.
