Welcome to the House Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s newsletter series. Every week, we will deliver new House and Senate vacancies, events and more – straight to your inbox!

The House of Representatives is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce. In one of the first acts of the 116th Congress, the House established the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. This office is charged with submitting to Congress a diversity plan to direct and guide House employing offices to recruit, hire, train, develop, advance, promote, and retain a diverse workforce. Additionally, the office will develop and conduct a survey to evaluate diversity in House employing offices.

The 116th Congress is the most diverse class of members in the history of Congress. More than one-in-five voting members, 22%, of the House and Senate are racial or ethnic minorities. A key component to ensuring the House celebrates and retains diversity is to promote policies which assist member offices in hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. Congressional staffers make a direct impact on the lives and well-being of millions of Americans, these staffers should reflect our rich diversity.

We Are Hiring! Interested in the DC area? There are job opportunities for both Democrats and Republicans that could be of interest for those seeking work in DC in the House or Senate. The House Office of Diversity and Inclusion will walk you through the application process, review your resumes and set up mock interviews specific to what the departments and committees look for in candidates. All you have to do is contact them!

LatinoJustice LEGAL INTERNSHIPS in New York and Orlando

About Us

LatinoJustice PRLDEF is one of the foremost Latino civil rights organizations in the country, serving a pan-Latino constituency. Since 1972, we have been bringing precedent-setting impact litigation that has profoundly improved the way Latinos are treated in our society. Our current areas of focus include:

  • Immigrants’ Rights
  • Voting Rights
  • Redistricting
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Job Discrimination
  • Treatment of Day Laborers
  • Freedom of Movement
  • Bias that affect the Latinx Community

Lozano v. City of Hazleton, enjoining a Pennsylvania town from enacting its own anti- immigrant ordinance; Aguilar v. U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement, successfully challenging ICE’s home raids practices in NY, resulting in groundbreaking settlement reforming ICE’s national home raids procedures, payment of $1 million dollars in damages and fees and providing immigration relief to plaintiffs facing removal; Perez-Santiago v. Volusia County, successful Section 4e voting rights case requiring Florida county to provide bilingual ballots; and recent historic victories include representing Cesar Vargas, nationally known DREAMer activities and dacamented law graduate in his successful NYS bar admission.

We are proud to have a professional team deeply committed to our mission. We look to hire individuals who share our commitment, who are emotionally intelligent, emphatic, and good team players. We strive to maintain a positive, interconnected, value driven culture, where opportunities for individual and professional development are available to all. If this sounds like the kind of place you’d like to be, we invite you to apply to any of the internship opportunities below.

Term Internships

LatinoJustice interns conduct fact investigations and legal research, draft sections of legal briefs and memos of law, participate in client & witness interviews and trial preparation, and accompany staff lawyers to court proceedings and legislative hearings. Law students are included in every stage of planning, developing and prosecuting our impact cases. Recent student work has included research into the First Amendment rights of day laborers, the Fourth Amendment rights of individuals involved in immigration home raids, and the Fourteenth Amendment right to equal protection. Term interns are expected to work 12-15 hours/week during the semester subject to class schedule availability.

The Summer Program

Each summer, several rising 2L and 3L students from around the country join LatinoJustice for a 10-12-week full-time internship. Past summer interns have on occasion continued to work on LatinoJustice cases upon returning to school and writing law review articles on substantive issues they worked on.

In NYC, we join our civil rights colleagues from the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF) to organize a Summer Racial Justice Series which provide unique networking opportunities and an opportunity to hear from leading civil rights practitioners. Past presentations have included the future of desegregation, emerging issues in immigrants’ rights, school to prison pipeline, and building public interest careers via clerkships and fellowships.

LatinoJustice also has a Long Island Satellite Office located in Touro Law School’s Public Advocacy Center in Central Islip.

LatinoJustice’s Southeast Regional Office opened in July 2014. The Southeast Regional Office also offers great networking opportunities with local Latinx community service organizations and Hispanic bar groups.

Please note that LatinoJustice has also sponsored several former term and summer interns for post-graduate public interest fellowships.

Qualifications

We are seeking:

  • Energetic, motivated law students with a record of commitment to social justice work
  • Excellent legal, written, research, and communications
  • Bilingual Spanish/English is a plus but not required.

We are happy to help students obtain academic course credit through school clinical externship programs and/or satisfy pro bono volunteer requirements at school or for bar admission.
