Donations Will Provide Disadvantaged Youth the Opportunity to Gain Work Experience at Non-Profits
We’re just weeks away from an exciting announcement that we think you’ll want to hear and – maybe – do something about.
COMBAT INJUSTICE! Unpaid internships remain an enduring cultural norm akin to what was once the acceptability of slavery, women's suffrage and black segregation up until 1865, 1919 and 1955 respectively. This Petition represents the highest order of social protest.
We must send the Obama Administration a very pointed message: Unpaid internships are unethical. They discriminate against the very same citizens responsible for the “change movement” that elected this Administration and they exacerbate hardship in today’s abysmal labor market.
We call upon President Obama to sign an Executive Order and take swift remedial action. We also petition ALL parties responsible to enact our Intern Bill of Rights and Proposed Reforms.
Sign our Petition to declare and defend an intern’s human rights. Embolden our unified stance and endorse our reforms to remedy this injustice. We invite you to participate here through lively, thoughtful debate. Exercise your 1st Amendment right to freedom of expression.
This but a battle cry. Next we must wage this revolution. Encourage everyone you know to sign this Petition and for them to do the same.
Join us. Change the world for the better. Help youth workers secure the equal rights, freedom and justice they deserve. Abolish unpaid internships!
