The DC Trans Coalition is a local grassroots organization dedicated to advocating for transgender, transsexual and gender diverse people within the District of Columbia. DCTC works with community advocates, other LGBT organizations, District agencies, and local politicians to enact and enforce policies responsive to the needs of the trans community. We are seeking an undergraduate intern for the Spring semester in order to coordinate our various enforcement programs. Responsibilities will include coordinating our Bathroom Project, frequent interaction with the DC Office of Human Rights, establishing a training program for our enforcement activities, helping to coordinate our legislative agenda and our meetings with local politicians, coordination with other LGBT organizations, helping with fundraising activities, and helping with membership and meeting organization.
This is an unpaid position, however we are willing to work with college/university advisers and administration to help you get appropriate course credit for your work. You will be able to work from home, and the work load will be flexible (up to 10 hours per week) so that you can maintain other employment. Attendance at DCTC meetings every 1st and 3rd Tuesday evening monthly will be mandatory. Preference will be given to bilingual (English/Spanish) applicants. We especially encourage trans and gender nonconforming people to apply since we prioritize building leadership experience in the trans/gnc community. This is a great opportunity if you’d like to work on LGBT advocacy and local grassroots organizing in the District of Columbia. Please send a resume and cover letter to Alison Gill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
