As this is an internship, we are not requiring prior development experience to apply. We believe entry level positions should be open to people who are passionate about our work and eager to learn, no matter their past experience. At Jews For Racial & Economic Justice, we practice hiring with intentionality and an understanding of how many factors, such as race and class, decrease equity in hiring interns. We strive to build a different hiring process that is more equitable and transparent.

Applications open Friday, September 23rd, and close Monday, October 17th at 9:00am ET. Please reach out to Sara (sara@jfrej.org) if you have any questions.
