Only One Week Left! 2014-2015 Reproductive Justice – HIV Fellowship Application Deadline May 7, 2014

LSRJ is now accepting applications for two RJ-HIV Fellow positions for the 2014-15 fellowship year at two leading organizations working at the intersection of HIV and reproductive justice: SisterLove in Atlanta, GA or Positive Women’s Network- USA in Oakland, CA.

LSRJ seeks applications from current 3Ls and recent law school graduates to work as a Reproductive Justice – HIV Fellow at a placement organization in either Atlanta, GA or Oakland, CA starting in late August 2014 through August 2015. 

Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) is a national network of law students, professors, and lawyers. They train and mobilize law students and new lawyers across the country to foster legal expertise and support for the realization of reproductive justice.

The Reproductive Justice Fellowship Program (RJFP) was created in 2010 to enhance the legal capacity of organizations working to influence law and policy as it relates to reproductive justice and to build a pipeline for future reproductive justice lawyers. The RJFP-HIV Fellowship is a pilot program launched in 2014. LSRJ will select and place two (2) RJ HIV Fellows for a one-year fellowship at two (2) nonprofits working on HIV policy.

Each RJ HIV Fellow will receive a $51,000 stipend and be placed at either Sister Love, in Atlanta, GA, or at the Positive Women’s Network USA, in Oakland, CA, from the end of August 2014 through August 2015. As a law school graduate with an understanding of the reproductive justice framework and HIV issues, the RJ HIV Fellow will assist in research, interpretation, and application of law to aid the placement organization’s education, organizing, publication, and policy pursuits. Thus, the RJ HIV Fellow will play an integral role in helping to influence public opinion, shape laws, and advance policy, aiming to ensure the future of reproductive justice for all people – irrespective of ability, age, ethnicity, status, gender, gender identity, income, nationality, religion, or sexual orientation. In addition, the RJFP provides rich opportunities for professional development, training, networking, and education in a supportive atmosphere. The RJ HIV Fellow will be mentored by the LSRJ Director of Academic & Professional Programs and participate in trainings and events with their Fellow cohort.
