|Description:||Internships to Protect Human Rights and the Environment For 35 years, Corporate Accountability International has successfully challenged corporations like Nestle, General Electric, and Philip Morris to halt abusive practices that threaten human rights, public health, the environment and our democracy. The organization is leading campaigns challenging some of the world's most powerful industries in food and agriculture, water and tobacco. Our internships are a unique opportunity to gain valuable organizing and non- profit experience. This is a hands-on program, designed to mentor and cultivate students interested in social justice, strengthen their understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and prepare them with the skills and experience necessary to challenge corporate abuse.
