Volunteer & Internships

Volunteers & interns are essential to our work.  If you’re looking for a way to gain valuable experience while learning about environmental justice, we have volunteer and internship opportunities ranging from researching corporate polluters to developing flyers, fact sheets and other materials to writing for legal cases.  We can often offer course credits for most internships.
