Communications intern

Communications is a core aspect of MIRA’s work, and it cuts across everything we do: from organizing, to legislative advocacy, to fundraising. We run Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, we produce web content, we send out email newsletters and action alerts, and produce videos and print materials.

It’s a ton of work – so we’re looking for some great interns to help us out!

We have 1–3 positions available, depending on interns’ schedules and skill sets. You will join another intern who is staying on from the summer, and be part of a close-knit, warm and friendly team. Minimum commitment of 8 hours per week; up to 20 hours possible.

Citizenship intern

Working with local and national partners, MIRA makes the citizenship process more accessible to immigrants across the Commonwealth through our Citizenship Clinics. We help green card holders eligible for citizenship to fill out their applications in group sessions in Boston and throughout the state. These free clinics provide immigrants the legal guidance, referrals and materials needed to successfully complete their application, pass the citizenship exam and become fully integrated members of the United States. 

The citizenship program is looking for an intern to commit to 2–3 days a week minimum (or the equivalent) for the fall semester, starting in September.

This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a small nonprofit setting – and to make a difference for a cause that we’re quite passionate about!

You will join a close-knit, warm and enthusiastic team, get to know every aspect of our work, and meet lots of great people. Minimum commitment of 6 hours per week; up to 16 hours possible.

Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers: Director of policy & organizing

The Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers (MCDW) seeks a director of policy and advocacy to advance our mission to bring justice and dignity to all domestic workers in our state. Founded in 2010, MCDW was the driving force in passing the MA Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, which established important labor standards and granted basic protections to nannies, housekeepers, and other in-home caregivers.

With the passage of the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights behind us, our focus now is the implementation of the new law and continued advocacy on behalf of domestic workers. The Coalition is currently made up of five organizations: the Brazilian Women's Group, the Dominican Development Center, Matahari Women Workers’ Center, the New England Jewish Labor Committee and the Boston Center for Independent Living. MCDW is housed at the Matahari Women Workers’ Center.

Founded in 2002, Matahari Women Workers’ Center, a fiscally sponsored project of Third Sector New England (TSNE), is a Greater Boston social justice organization of women of color, immigrant women and families who organize as sisters, workers, and survivors for personal and societal transformation, justice and human rights. We build leadership and organize communities impacted by gender based violence and exploitation, provide survivor advocacy, and fight for the rights of those who suffer domestic, workplace, systemic, and state violence.
