Description/Mission statement:
The Los Angeles Chapter of GABNET/ MA-AL is opening up summer internships for enthusiastic, self-starting, results oriented students and community members. The internship provides the opportunity to gather experience in student/community outreach, research, public speaking, working in small group settings, event planning, and working with and developing social media tools. Interns will also benefit from various skill development trainings.
For the past nineteen years, the GABRIELA Network of the Mariposa Alliance (GABNET/ MA-AL) has fought to bring issues of human trafficking, militarism, labor exportation and exploitation, globalization and international human-rights violations to the forefront of our political and ethical consciousness. Through direct action campaigns, educational programming and organizing GABRIELA has become one of the strongest voices speaking out against the struggles that Filipina and Filipina-Americans face.
