Description

Pennsylvanians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (PADP) is a grassroots organization dedicated to ending capital punishment in Pennsylvania. We believe that there are safe and fair alternatives to executions. PADP organizes Pennsylvania citizens through direct outreach and community education. By mobilizing a powerful network of individuals and groups, we are implementing a comprehensive strategy designed to put a stop to executions.
For more information about our work, please visit our website at www.padp.org; our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/padp.org and on twitter @padp_org
Interns may work remotely from anywhere in the United States. For remotely located interns, meetings will be conducted via video conference.

Responsibilities

Interns will be recruiting, mobilizing, organizing, activating and supporting PA Catholics and other people of faith in support of ending capital punishment. Pope Francis has often said that the death penalty is inconsistent with the Church’s teachings and that we must come together to abolish it. His visit to Philly in September calls us to increase our work. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a sea change in the area of justice. Interns will also work collaboratively with organizations including student groups, ACLU, NAACP; Catholic Conference, Catholic Mobilizing Network, PA Council of Churches and other social justice groups.
Interns will be sharing information with our target audience, sometimes in formal presentations. This will include writing in several different media, including:letters to the editor, blog posts, online article comments, social media, instructional material, letters to elected officials and other community leaders.
