In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr’s Day, this week I selected a few internships that promote change. Years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. was able to make a difference through perseverance and nonviolence, and today there are still many pressing issues that need our attention. So if you have the dedication and passion to lead in one of the following campaigns, apply now and start making a peaceful change.
