This summer A.N.S.W.E.R. will be continuing to organize many actions, including forums, film screenings, protests and other activities. As an intern, you can be an important part of this organizing.
A.N.S.W.E.R. uses a diversity of tactics and strategies to build, sustain, expand and deepen the new anti-war, anti-racist, pro-people movement that has emerged. In addition to helping build protest marches, interns have the opportunity to gain experience through organizing various A.N.S.W.E.R. projects, including:
* Weekly A.N.S.W.E.R. Meetings and Monthly Forums
* Labor, Community and Youth & Student Organizing
* The A.N.S.W.E.R.-LA Outreach Committee

* Resource Development and Non-profit e-Commerce
* Website Administration
* Office Management
This summer, A.N.S.W.E.R. interns will also have the opportunity to work on a short film production about the working class in Los Angeles. This project will be led by an award-winning independent filmmaker, who is also an A.N.S.W.E.R. organizer. It will be a great opportunity to learn about politics, organizing and filmmaking. Please note in your application if you are interested in working on this project.
Interns must have passion to work with others to build the social justice movement. No formal experience is required. Experience in multicultural and diverse gender environments is helpful. Bilingual skills are helpful, but not necessary. General knowledge of computers and community organizing experience is helpful. Applicants of all ages are welcome.
We encourage interns to commit to working with A.N.S.W.E.R. for 8 to 25 hours a week for a 4 to 6 week minimum. Some of this time will be spent in the A.N.S.W.E.R. Office in Hollywood. A.N.S.W.E.R. is a volunteer based organization. This internship is unpaid.
ABOUT THE A.N.S.W.E.R. COALITION
A.N.S.W.E.R. has been key in organizing the historic anti-war demonstrations of the last 5 years. A.N.S.W.E.R.’s national steering committee represents groups that have campaigned against U.S. intervention in Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and for social and economic justice for workers and poor people in the U.S. A.N.S.W.E.R. is the leading anti-imperialist coalition in the U.S. anti-war movement and a major organization in the growing immigrant rights movement. We defend revolutionary Cuba and the Bolivarian process in Venezuela.
A.N.S.W.E.R. counts dozens of international affiliates. From the inception of the coalition, our strategy has been to link with movements in other countries, to create, sustain and expand a united front of local, national and international dissent and opposition to the U.S. government and corporate elite's drive for racist war and occupation and more assaults on civil liberties.
BUILDING COMMUNITY ACTIVIST LEADERS
A.N.S.W.E.R.’s internship program includes a mentoring system and programs to raise awareness among activists of historical and current political developments, fighting racism and bigotry, the struggle for self-determination for oppressed peoples and how these issues affect our society and impact the overall struggle for peace and social justice.
