Policy Intern Program

Interfaith Alliance, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to protecting religious freedom for all Americans, seeks a second- or third-year law student or recent graduate to assist our federal policy team in Washington, D.C. This is a position for Summer 2020.

Too often, the national dialogue around religious freedom favors the beliefs of some over the rights of all. Interfaith Alliance was founded in 1994 to push back on this false narrative by amplifying the voices of diverse people of faith and of no faith to protect freedom of belief, challenge extremism and hate, and prevent the misuse of religion to discriminate.

The policy intern will monitor and analyze legislation, conduct legal research, and contribute to policy materials and regulatory comments relevant to our federal policy agenda. As an equal opportunity employer, applicants need not profess a faith but must be willing to work on behalf of the issues we support, including combating religious discrimination, LGBTQ+ equality, separation of religion and government, and other First Amendment issues.

Eligibility and Requirements: Second- and third-year law students and recent graduates are eligible to apply. Applicants should have strong research, writing, and analytical skills, as well as an interest in legislative advocacy and First Amendment jurisprudence.

Compensation: Monthly stipend

How to apply: Please submit a cover letter, resume, and a relevant writing sample to [email protected]. No faxes or telephone calls please.

Deadline: Rolling
