The Gender Justice Advocates Program is designed for John Jay students who are passionate about women’s rights, LGBTQ equality, and creating a hospitable campus culture free of barriers, prejudice and bigotry and interested in event planning, and meeting new people. Advocates learn about local and national gender justice efforts, receive training in social justice organizing, and build bridges between their academic interests and professional ambitions.
In this internship, students are academic-participants in a project exploring ways communities work to address conflicts and concerns regarding housing issues and the ways by which they attempt to resolve them.
Students selected for this internship will work in the organization, learn the role that the organization plays in community life and explore its role in dealing with issues of housing in the community. In the academic component of the internship, students enroll in ISP 392. This course focuses on how communities work to address local problems and develop means to resolve them by considering how government, not for profits, and landlords/developers negotiate community based housing issues on a local level.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization whose mission is to uphold the core values of American Democracy. They are currently recruiting volunteers to answer voters’ questions at polling places and to assist voters in reporting any bad practices at polling places to election authorities on Election Day. Common Cause is specifically targeting areas where competitive races are taking place and voters have historically faced barriers to voting.
Prior to Election Day, volunteers will need to register for a 90-minute training where they will be provided with all the information and tools necessary to be a poll monitor. After volunteers complete their training, poll monitors will take a two-hour shift at a polling place in their community on Election Day.
