Spelman Students Selected for Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps Internships

May 2016

RRASC InternsTwo Spelman students have been offered summer internships with the Civil Liberties & Public Policy’s Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps. The 10-week paid internship program places undergraduate students at reproductive rights and social justice organizations around the country.

Lexus Phillips, C’2017, a comparative women’s studies major, will intern with Advocates for Youth in Washington, D.C. Tierra Fenderson, C’2018, a sociology major, will work with SPARK Reproductive Justice Now in Atlanta. They are among the 35 interns selected for the summer 2016 cohort.

CLPP educates, trains, and supports new activists to advance reproductive freedom, justice and sexual rights for everyone. “These are our future social justice leaders, and I am so inspired by their work on their campuses to fight for causes as varied as immigrant rights, Black Lives Matter, the Fight for $15, and against sexual assault and violence,” said CLPP assistant director Johanna Fernandez, who directs the internship program.
