Application Deadline: September 16, 2009
Through grassroots organizing, Nodutdol for Korean Community Development seeks to bridge divisions created by war, nation, gender, sexual orientation, language, class, and generation among Koreans and to empower our community to address the injustices we and other people of color face here and abroad. Nodutdol works in collaboration with other progressive organizations locally, nationally and internationally as part of a larger movement for peace and social change. To learn more about Nodutdol, go to http://www.nodutdol.org.
In 2009, Nodutdol, as part of a national coalition, launched a campaign for the ratification of a Peace Treaty on the Korean peninsula. The Peace Treaty Campaign involves mass outreach and education to college campuses and community organizations, a Peace Treaty cultural event with artists and performers, and a coordinated advocacy campaign targeting the State Department and legislators.
Interns will assist in the campaign in many different ways, and responsibilities will include:
Maintaining and providing content for “Unlearn War: Proliferate Peace,” Nodutdol’s Peace Treaty blog;
Making contacts with student organizations on local college campuses to arrange workshops and other educational events;
Bringing together student leaders from various campuses and organizations to form a host committee for Nodutdol’s Peace Treaty cultural event in Spring 2010;
Co-facilitating workshops and education events at local college campuses; and
Assisting with Nodutdol’s 10th Anniversary fundraiser.
Successful applicants will be familiar with social networking, blogging, and outreach and have a strong interest in peace and social justice issues. East Asian Studies or Political Science majors preferred.
Internship will be 8 hours/week for the duration of the 2009-2010 academic school year (exact dates/times TBD). Although this is an unpaid internship, Nodutdol is happy to work with interns so they may receive academic credit or outside funding for their work.
