The Alice Paul Institute offers a wide range of ways for people to become involved and help us advance our mission through joining the staff, internships, or volunteering. Rooted in a deep belief in equality for all, API is dedicated to intersectional feminism to ensure our work is informed by a rich diversity of perspectives and experiences.
In the past year, the Alice Paul Institute has moved a majority of our work to a virtual space. This has changed our volunteer opportunities. We are currently reworking our volunteer program to our adapting needs. If you are interested in volunteer, please fill out the form to receive an email from Operations Director Colleen Tryner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
API welcomes student interns to participate in a variety of internships and projects, which are outlined below.
