Spend a year working in Washington.

Here's a great, very immediate opportunity for a young Unitarian Universalist hoping to learn about politics and religion — a new, one-year position as Legislative Assistant for Civil Rights and Religious Liberty in the UUA's Washington Office for Advocacy:

The goal of the UUA Social Justice Internship Program is to combine service, learning, and faith development in order to produce energetic young adults with the professional skills and strength of character to be lifelong leaders in Unitarian Universalism and working for social justice. . . .

For the coming year, the CRRL portfolio will focus primarily on supporting marriage equality, maintaining separation of religion and state, renewing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and protecting civil liberties and due process for all people. . . .

The internship starts on Monday, August 29, 2005, and runs through mid-August 2006. The yearly stipend is $28,000 with benefits (including health insurance). Housing is not provided.

If you're a Unitarian Universalist young adult interested in working in Washington, it's a great opportunity. But it's only five weeks away — so send in your application soon. (Here's more on the internship program.)

This is not a "new" position, FYI.

Dear me, why do you say it isn't new? None of the current interns holds this title, and the request for applicants apologizes for not announcing it sooner because funding for it just became available. Perhaps the "CRRL" intern is replacing one of the current intern positions?
