This legislation is geared toward (1) giving judge’s discretion to sentence survivors whose abuse was a “significant contributing factor” in their crime a lower sentence, and (2) permitting currently incarcerated survivors to apply to the courts for resentencing and earlier release.

Expectations:

As Herstory will be engaging in public policy, part of the internship will be research based.  Responsibilities include attending and providing logistical support for reading circles and our annual fundraiser, with a minimum of 15 hours per week required.  Students must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and demonstrate strong research and writing skills.  This internship will run though both the fall ’16 and spring ‘17 semesters.

Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund

Major(s): All Majors, Urban Planning, Political Science

FALL INTERNSHIPS 2016 DEFENDING ASIAN AMERICAN VOTING RIGHTS for Undergraduate, Graduate, and Law Students

The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans through litigation, advocacy, and community education. Fall internships are available for college, graduate, and law students in AALDEF’s Voting Rights Program.

In prior elections, Asian Americans faced a series of barriers in exercising their right to vote. For example, poll workers were hostile and made racist remarks, poll sites had too few interpreters to assist Asian American voters, translated voting materials were missing or hidden from voters, and ballots were mistranslated listing Democratic candidates as Republicans, and vice versa. Then, when the news media reported on election returns and the vote by specific groups, Asian Americans were overlooked. AALDEF’s Voting Rights Program aims to enhance the political participation of Asian Americans and guard against anti-Asian voter discrimination.

Voting Rights Interns work on the following:

Election monitoring to ensure that Asian Americans are treated fairly at the polls and to document violations of the Voting Rights Act and the federal Constitution. The Voting Rights Act mandates the availability of Chinese, Korean, and Bengali language assistance and forbids anti-Asian voter discrimination. Work with pro bono lawyers at corporate law firms and volunteer law students to inspect poll sites for compliance with the Voting Rights Act and the Help America Vote Act. Coordinate a survey of Asian American voters to document the use of bilingual ballots and report on Asian American voting patterns. The survey will be taken at several poll sites across the nation. Interns will recruit, train, and supervise volunteers, as well as coordinate logistics at three dozen polling locations. Register new voters after citizenship swearing-in ceremonies. Conduct research and advocacy on local, state, and federal election reform proposals.
