Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign Summer Internship Info Session

Rosendo “Ross” Levin ’15 extends another opportunity to be awesome to you:

Fresh off a wild ride of a spring break with the Poor People’s
Economic Human Rights Campaign, a few Wesleyan students will be
talking to you about how you can join into the next step in an ongoing
experience of learning by living, communal living, anti-poverty
organizing and bridging barriers through dialogue and action in one of
the poorest urban neighborhoods in the country. The Poor People’s
Economic Human Rights Campaign is the largest multi-racial poor
people’s movement in the United States. In Philadelphia, the affiliate
organization is led by Cheri Honkala, the organization’s National
Coordinator and 2012 Green Party candidate for Vice President. The
Philadelphia affiliate has many roles–it is a political voice for the
poor, it works to solve the problems of poverty (such as housing,
welfare, and food), and it works to organize so that society can be
more fair and cooperative. Interns will help in the daily operations
of PPEHRC, doing everything from working on the occupied farm to
collecting information for housing takeovers to creating fliers to
distributing food to helping people move through bureaucracy to
writing grants to marching, and much else. Internships are also
possibly available in other cities with PPEHRC affiliates, please be
in touch if you would like more information.

Date: Tuesday, 4/23
Time: 4:15-5:15 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Ave, Room 110
