      Urban Habitat's Transportation Justice team seeks a part-time intern to assist
      it with its research, communications and policy work.  The TJ team combines
      policy and advocacy, coalition building, education, fundraising and research to
      strengthen the Bay Area's low-income communities of color' capacity and power to
      win concrete improvements in their transportation, as well as to shift more
      transportation resources, at the Federal, State, Regional level, to improve bus
      service for the transit-dependent.

      Justice Working Group meetings; write, copyedit, proofread and post stories to
      the TJ program webpage and TJ program email listserve; do research on
      transportation policy, funding, and how it relates to environmental justice,
      including racism, economics and the climate.  Depending on level of interest and
      ability, the TJ intern may be asked to do any of the following:  meeting
      planning and facilitation, curriculum development and delivery, meeting
      tracking, public speaking and community outreach.

      The position requires a commitment to social, racial and environmental justice
      as well as an interest in transportation policy (experience with TJ a plus!). 
      The position requires strong research and writing skills, experience in updating
      and maintaining websites, managing and creating content for email listserves and
      ability to multi-task and work within a dynamic environment.

      The position is on-site in Oakland for 20 hours per week and the schedule is
      flexible, with the possibility of some evening/weekend hours.  This is a paid
      internship $12-$14/hr commensurate with experience.  (We also will consider
      unpaid internships for interested students who would like to apply their own
      research or class work to assist us with our policy goals.)

      want to work with us to lindsay (at) urbanhabitat (dot) org.  If you have any
