As one of CLPP’s leadership development projects, RRASC enables students to connect their academic studies to reproductive rights and social justice activism. We offer paid internships in order to prioritize and support the leadership of young activists from across the class spectrum. This year's interns represent diverse backgrounds, academic interests, and activist experiences. They will work on a wide range of issues, from soil remediation to LGBT health, from abortion access to legal services for people in prison. Please join us in congratulating these students!
