AFSA represents over 28,000 active and retired Foreign Service employees of the Department of State and Agency for International Development (AID), as well as smaller groups in the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (FCS), and International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB).

AFSA's principal missions are to enhance the effectiveness of the Foreign Service, to protect the professional interests of its members, to ensure the maintenance of high professional standards for both career diplomats and political appointees, and to promote understanding of the critical role of the Foreign Service in promoting America's national security and economic prosperity.

AFSA is the exclusive bargaining agent for the Foreign Service employees of the Department of State, AID, FAS, CS, and IBB. In this labor/management relations capacity, AFSA negotiates with the managements of the principal foreign-affairs agencies on personnel policies and practices affecting members' working conditions. AFSA also represents members in formal grievance proceedings, office of security and inspector general investigations, and EEO cases, while providing them informal assistance in dealing with administrative problems.

Foreign Service retiree concerns are an integral part of the AFSA agenda. AFSA works closely with retired Foreign Service personnel on legislative issues related to retiree pensions and benefits. Retirees, individually and through independent retiree groups around the country, actively promote the Foreign Service and international engagement in their communities.

In its efforts to explain the Foreign Service's role and to build domestic constituencies to support its activities, AFSA operates a speakers bureau, which makes experienced diplomats available to speak to a wide range of groups all across the country. Under the auspices of the Exploritas organization, AFSA members conduct continuing education programs on the Foreign Service.

Check opportunities and limit by part-time and District of Columbia to find current openings.Since its founding in 1881 by visionary leader Clara Barton, the American Red Cross has been the nation's premier emergency response organization. As part of a worldwide movement that offers neutral humanitarian care to the victims of war, the American Red Cross distinguishes itself by also aiding victims of devastating natural disasters. Over the years, the organization has expanded its services, always with the aim of preventing and relieving suffering.

Today, in addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers compassionate services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; support and comfort for military members and their families; the collection, processing and distribution of lifesaving blood and blood products; educational programs that promote health and safety; and international relief and development programs.

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors?across the street, across the country, and across the world?in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new?the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through over 700 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world.

Some four million people give blood?the gift of life?through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. And the Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, a global network of 186 national societies, the Red Cross helps restore hope and dignity to the world's most vulnerable people.

An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.

The American National Red Cross is headquartered in Washington, Gail J. McGovern is President and CEO, and Bonnie McElveen-Hunter is Chairman of the Board of Governors.

Intern coordinator prefers to talk to students directly to discuss interest.Since its founding in 1951 AWI has sought to reduce the sum total of pain and fear inflicted on animals by people. In the organization's early years our particular emphasis was on the desperate needs of animals used for experimentation. In the decades that followed we expanded the scope of our work to address many other areas of animal suffering. Today one of our greatest areas of emphasis is cruel animal factories, which raise and slaughter pigs, cows, chickens and other animals. Another major AWI effort is our quest to end the torture inflicted on furbearing animals by steel jaw leghold traps and wire snares. AWI continues its work to protect animals in laboratories including promotion of development of non-animal testing methods and prevention of painful experiments on animals by high school students. Representatives of AWI regularly attend meetings of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora to fight for protection of threatened and endangered species. Similarly, we attend meetings of the International Whaling Commission to preserve the ban on commercial whaling and we work to protect all marine life against the proliferation of human-generated ocean noise including active sonar and seismic air guns. AWI works to minimize the impacts of all human actions detrimental to endangered species, including the destruction of natural forests containing ancient trees, and pollution of the oceans destroying every kind of marine life.

Economic Strategy Institute 3050 K St.NW, Suite 200Washington, DC 20007 (202) 965-9484(202) 965-1104 not able to offer internships for 2011-2012 school year.The Economic Strategy Institute (ESI) is a private, non-profit, non-partisan public policy research organization dedicated to assuring that globalization works with market forces to achieve maximum benefits rather than distorting markets, and imposing costs. This should be achieved on the basis of principles, policies, and institutions consistent with democratic values. Because security and national welfare will increasingly depend on performance in the global marketplace, the Economic Strategy Institute is particularly concerned with developing national and corporate strategies to assure that globalization takes place on a level playing field and the reality is mutually beneficial.

The Institute is a firm believer in markets, but it knows that all markets operate within boundaries of different rules and institutions. ESI studies and understands the importance of macroeconomic factors such as interest rates, exchange rates, and savings rates. But, unlike many economic policy organizations, ESI places particular emphasis on institutional and structural factors and on the circumstances of the particular industries that make up the overall economy. It is, after all, impossible to have a smoothly running machine if the key components are faulty. Accordingly, ESI analyzes major industries and technologies as well as domestic and international economic industrial policies.

FAIR Fund was built to be a platform to engage and mobilize youth to take part in and help shape civil society. FAIR Fund programs have reached over 13,000 young people in four years and have provided technical and programmatic support to over 60 social service organizations in 13 countries through out the United States, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, Central Asia, and eastern Africa.

Thorpe, as one of the earliest Americans to recognize that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was at the core of the Arab-Israeli conflict, became deeply involved in searching for a solution. He created FMEP to promote a solution that would bring peace for Israelis and justice for Palestinians.

The Foundation advances this goal through education and advocacy, publication of books and pamphlets about the conflict, a speakers? program to introduce Israeli, Palestinian, and other experts to U.S. audiences, public speaking by officers of the Foundation, and a small grant program to support groups that contribute to peace between Israel and Palestine.

In 1992, in view of the growing threat of Israeli settlements to peace, the Foundation introduced the bimonthly Report on Israeli Settlements in the Occupied Territories, edited by Geoffrey Aronson. The Report contains detailed, authoritative analysis, data and maps on settlements and related issues.

Through education, organizing and advocacy, we promote diverse and independent media ownership, strong public media, quality journalism, and universal access to communications.

Free Press was launched in late 2002 by media scholar Robert W. McChesney, journalist John Nichols and Josh Silver, our executive director. Today, Free Press is the largest media reform organization in the United States, with nearly half-a-million activists and members and a full-time staff of more than 30 based in our offices in Washington, D.C., and Florence, Mass.

Our Purpose

Media play a huge role in our lives. TV, radio, the Internet, movies, books and newspapers inform and influence our ideas, opinions, values and beliefs. They shape our understanding of the world and give us the information we need to hold our leaders accountable. But our media system is failing.

This broken system isn't natural. For far too long, corrupt media policy has been made behind closed doors in the public's name but without our informed consent. If we want better media, we need better media policies. If we want better policies, we must engage more people in policy debates and demand better media.

That's why Free Press was created. We're working to make media reform a bona fide political issue in America. Big Media companies have plenty of lobbyists to do their bidding. We're making sure the public has a seat at the table, and we're building a movement to make sure the media serve the public interest.

Free Press believes that media reform is crucial not just for creating better news and entertainment, but to advancing every issue you care about. A vibrant, diverse and independent media is the cornerstone of a healthy democracy.

Our members envision a world in which the global community is willing and able to protect civilians from genocide and mass atrocities. The Genocide Intervention Network is mobilizing a permanent anti-genocide constituency that lobbies our leaders for substantial action, and creates a political cost for those officials who fail to take these necessary actions.

In the past, the United States and the international community have failed to prevent and stop genocide because of a lack of political will in our elected officials and among our citizens. There has been no political consequence for our leaders if they did not take action.

GI-NET's theory of change is based on the recognition that a diverse cross-section of the world's population cares deeply about ending and preventing genocide, regardless of where it might occur. It is this constituent pressure that can make genocide prevention an important and relevant political priority for elected officials and policymakers.

Our innovative tools and programs provide citizens with the resources to educate, organize, and advocate in their communities. By investing heavily in individuals and empowering them to be local leaders on their campuses and in their communities, GI-NET provides hands-on opportunities for citizens of the world to make genocide prevention a domestic political issue. We believe that if given the tools, all citizens of the global community can become daily active upstanders against genocide.

Girls Incorporated 1001 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. #740Washington, DC 20036Denese LombardiProgram, R - no phone calls please There is no question that the strength of our organization lies in the passion of its people. Our Board ? comprised of both men and women ? has the advantage of tapping into an extraordinary female presence in the Washington, DC area.

The current Board of Directors has spent countless hours reaching out to the community to develop partnerships for providing programs and for facilities. And they have succeeded. We are fortunate to have considerable talent in our area familiar with Girls Inc. programs, including a number of Girls Inc. program alumni and scholars, current and former national Board members, and national Board officers and members. In particular, Girls Inc.WDCMA has two Board members with significant national Girls Inc. experience; a former national Board chair ? Roselyn Epps, MD ? and a former national policy director ? Mildred Kiefer Wurf. These two outstanding individuals together with the other highly accomplished members of the original steering committee and current board, have provided invaluable and efficient guidance to our affiliate.

Girls Inc. of WDCMA has three other key strengths:

1) A successful, strong national parent organization with outstanding programs and a Research and Training Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, containing one of the largest collections of girl research in the country.

2) Programs that have specific goals and objectives and align with learning standards and benchmarks that are commonly used nationwide.

3) An intentional and compensatory commitment to work with girls. This focus is our distinctive competence, a quality we believe is both needed and valued by our local communities and supporters, as well as by parents and girls.

In putting forward solutions, facilitating strategic partnerships, and conducting groundbreaking research, GFI is leading the way in efforts to curtail illicit financial flows and enhance global development and security.


Our mission stems from the estimate that $1 trillion in funds which are illegally earned, transferred or utilized are spirited across borders annually. Of this, $500 billion a year comes out of developing and transitional economies into western accounts, constituting the most damaging economic condition hurting the poor. Illicit capital flows enable drug cartels, terrorist organizations and tax evaders to move cash around the globe, undermines the goals of the World Bank and other lending institutions, strips developing nations of critical resources, and contributes to failed states.


Global Financial Integrity was launched in September 2006 following the publication of Capitalism?s Achilles Heel: Dirty Money and How to Renew the Free-Market System, (John Wiley & Sons 2005), written by Center for International Policy Senior Fellow Raymond Baker. The book demonstrates that the problem of illicit financial flows, and the financial infrastructure supporting it, is enormous. For example, some 70 tax havens and secrecy jurisdictions are in operation across the globe and millions of dummy corporations shield owner?s identities. And the scourge of dirty money is getting worse. Indeed, global corruption has not diminished despite ten years of effort, assets now stashed in tax havens around the globe are estimated at $11.5 trillion, and non-bank cash deposits outside the country of origin are rising.

Additionally, despite massive amounts of foreign aid streaming into transitional economies, many countries fail to develop to the point that they no longer need aid. Baker?s book argues that one reason for this is that illicit capital flows inhibit a country?s ability to grow out of poverty. For every $1 poor nations receive in foreign aid, an estimated $10 in dirty money flows illicitly abroad. With such great amounts of capital draining from weak economies there is little hope of significant development or of curtailing poverty. Without mechanisms to curtail illicit cash flows, the benefits of foreign aid are undermined and the potential for drug cartels and terrorist groups using the banking system to their advantage is greatly increased.

Because we enable donors to give directly to projects, they know exactly where their money is going. Donors can see progress updates on most projects as funding is received and goals are met.

Donations made through GlobalGiving are higher impact because:

* Money is going directly to a well-defined project versus supporting general operating expenses

* Projects on have exposure to thousands of donors, enabling us to aggregate multiple sources of funding for each project

* Many projects on are located in the developing world where a little money goes a long way

We connect donors to projects via our public website, as well as through custom giving services.

Members of HLC ? hospitals, health plans, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, biotech firms, health product distributors, pharmacies and academic health centers ? envision a quality-driven system that fosters innovation. HLC members advocate measures to increase the cost-effectiveness of American healthcare by emphasizing wellness and prevention, care coordination, and the use of evidence-based medicine, while utilizing consumer choice and competition to elevate value.

Providing access to health coverage for the uninsured, accelerating the growth of health information technology, and reforming healthcare payment systems to incentivize quality and positive patient outcomes are important HLC priorities, along with improving patient safety, addressing the healthcare workforce shortage, enacting medical liability reforms and developing patient privacy rules that protect confidentiality while enabling the necessary flow of information to healthcare professionals and medical researchers.

HLC shares its vision for quality healthcare with Congress, the administration, the media, the research community, and the public through communications and educational programs. Because of the broad scope of the HLC membership, HLC is well known by congressional members and staff as an integral source for comprehensive information on key health issues. HLC staff briefings and events such as the HLC Innovations health fair are well attended by members and staff alike.

And, in the belief that healthcare is essentially local, HLC builds coalitions at the community level to pursue its goals for America?s patients. Six regionally based directors conduct activities with members of Congress, organize health briefings and forums to educate local media and the public, and form local health advisory committees to advocate for innovative, high-quality, and affordable healthcare.

House Committee on Rules, Minority H-312 The CapitolWashington, DC 20515 202-225-9091, RIf interested, contact to inquire about current internship opportunities.The great paradox of the Rules Committee is that while it originally was created to develop a set of standing rules and uniform order of business for the House, its principal role now is to devise special rules to manage floor debate on legislation outside of those standing rule. This development, over a two-century period, reflects the growing complexity of the Congress and the issues it confronts, the changing relationships among its internal components, and the ultimate need for a mechanism to assist the leadership in coordinating and processing the business of the Congress in an orderly and expeditious fashion.

As an arm of the leadership, regardless of which party controls the House, the Committee is at the center of both political and legislative battles, performing precarious balancing acts between majority will and minority rights, leadership needs and membership demands, and a wide range of public policy options. The flexibility of the Committee over the years to adapt to changing circumstances and help bring order out of uncertainty is the best measure of its continuing utility and necessity. Our Scholar-Intern Program aims to expose students to the legislative and political process while affording the candidate experience working for a fast-paced Congressional committee at which Members of Congress testify. Interns are given the opportunity to participate in all lectures and seminars on Capitol Hill.

Established in 1954, The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals?a world that will also benefit people. We are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond.

Our mission statement: Celebrating Animals, Confronting Cruelty.

We work to reduce suffering and to create meaningful social change for animals by advocating for sensible public policies, investigating cruelty and working to enforce existing laws, educating the public about animal issues, joining with corporations on behalf of animal-friendly policies, and conducting hands-on programs that make ours a more humane world. We are the lead disaster relief agency for animals, and we provide direct care for thousands of animals at our sanctuaries and rescue facilities, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and mobile veterinary clinics.

We celebrate pets, as well as wildlife and habitat protection. We are the nation's most important advocate for local humane societies, providing shelter standards and evaluations, training programs, direct support, and national conferences. We are building a Humane Wildlife Services program to provide homeowners and businesses with humane and effective solutions to conflicts with our wild neighbors. The HSUS publishes All Animals, a membership magazine, and Animal Sheltering, a bi-monthly magazine for animal sheltering professionals.

We confront national and global cruelties through major campaigns targeting the barbaric practices of dogfighting and cockfighting; abusive puppy mills where dogs are treated not like family but like production machines; the worst cruelties of factory farming in modern agribusiness such as confinement of animals in crates and cages; inhumane and unsporting hunting practices such as canned hunts of captive exotic animals; the slaughter of American horses for export to foreign countries where horsemeat is considered a delicacy; and the clubbing of baby seals and other animals for the commercial fur trade. Our track record of effectiveness has led to meaningful victories for animals in Congress, state legislatures, courtrooms and corporate boardrooms.

Institute for Health Policy Solutions 1444 I St., NW, Suite 900Washington, DC 20005Richard CurtisPresident202-789-1491202-789-1879 (incl. dates of availability), R, WS, T, Refs (2) The Institute for Health Policy Solutions (IHPS) is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to develop creative and workable solutions to health system problems. Founded in April 1992, the nonpartisan Institute focuses on coverage strategies that cost-effectively achieve health care access goals.

The Institute addresses a variety of health care coverage and associated cost issues, with the overarching goal of achieving coverage by and for allSM Americans. In pursuing this goal, we work to develop transformative approaches that are in the public interest and that are made more effective by taking into account pertinent private sector dynamics.

Core Policy Areas

The Institute identifies and develops coverage solutions that often involve complementary public and private roles. IHPS analyses and develops both system reforms and transitional approaches towards coverage by and for allSM. Our team of policy and financing experts work at the federal, state and local levels to help expand coverage to working individuals and families, leverage the advantages of health coverage at work, and facilitate collaboration across public and private sectors.

Our work across these areas includes:

Developing coverage structures such as purchasing pools that can improve financial access and choice, as well as risk spreading and continuity of coverage for uninsured workers and individuals;
Designing and refining coverage models, such as Health@WorkSM that optimize use of public and private revenue and cover populations that constitute a disproportionate number of the uninsured, such as small-firm workers and their families, as well as children not eligible for federal programs;
Developing innovative financing strategies that rationally combine public subsidies with employer and worker contributions to expand coverage of low-income workers and their families; and Formulating public policies that broaden participation and thus move toward the goal of coverage by and for allSM.

Since 1963, the Institute has worked with social movements to forge viable and sustainable policies to promote democracy, justice, human rights, and diversity. IPS played key roles in the Civil Rights and anti-war movements in the 1960s, the women?s and environmental movements in the 1970s, the anti-apartheid and anti-intervention movements in the 1980s, and the fair trade and environmental justice movements today.

Based in Washington, DC, but with links to activists and scholars across the nation and around the world, the Institute serves as a bridge between progressive forces in government and grass-roots activists, and between movements in the U.S. and those in the developing world. We are proud to serve as an alternative voice, helping the least powerful to be heard in the halls of government and in the mainstream and independent press.

While other think tanks celebrate the virtues of unrestrained markets and individualism, IPS is building partnerships to create a more responsible society ? one built around the values of justice, nonviolence, sustainability, and decency.

The International Intellectual Property Institute (IIPI) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation located in Washington, DC. As an international development organization and think tank, IIPI is dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of the use of intellectual property as a tool for economic growth, particularly in developing countries. Since 1998 the Institute has been engaged in a wide range of activities both abroad and within the United States, including critical research, public education, policy and training workshops, technical assistance, institution building and consultative services.

The work of the Institute focuses on establishing constituencies of policymakers, business leaders and judicial stakeholders in the developing world who understand that effective, enforceable intellectual property rights can be a tool to promote economic development in their own countries, and not simply a nuisance or legal obligation. Because we live in a world where wealth generation is increasingly the result of ideas rather than products, it is critical to assist developing countries in moving away from commodities-based economies through the creation of thriving industries rooted in the intellectual assets of their citizens.

The Institute seeks to increase awareness and understanding of the use of intellectual property - patents, copyrights and trademarks, trade secrets, industrial designs, etc. - as a tool for sustainable economic growth. With support from private corporations, the United States and foreign governments and other international development organizations, IIPI is working to increase the capacity of human intellectual assets and creativity to fuel economic growth and improve standards of living.

ThisILI?s mission is to raise levels of professional competence and capacity in all nations so that professionals everywhere may achieve practical solutions to common problems in ways that suit their nations? own needs. In working to fulfill that mission, ILI activities have grown from pure research to practical training and education in Washington, its regional campuses, and elsewhere; advising governments and private entities internationally; and publishing.


At the heart of the ILI training program are the seminars for participants from the public and private sectors. The Washington-based courses cover a breadth of topics relating to national and international business, investment, and governance. These topics include procurement, privatization, arbitration and mediation, negotiating and implementing trade agreements, WTO: rights and obligations, project management, legislative drafting, judicial administration, corporate governance, bank restructuring, and borrowing & debt management. Of special interest to foreign lawyers, law students preparing for graduate legal study in the U.S, and others whose jobs require an understanding of the U.S. legal system are three courses offered every summer - Introduction to Legal English, Workshop on Legal Research and Writing, and Orientation to the U.S. Legal System. Additionally, ILI offers tailored courses abroad, in additional to its standard offerings customized for particular national audiences.


ILI serves as an advisor to governments and multilateral organizations in many areas, including among others, specific negotiations, problems, and special assignments, such as drafting of agreements, focused studies, revision of regulations, contract standardization, legislative drafting, procurement, and project management. ILI draws on its very large network of alumni, faculty, and advisors to dispatch teams well-suited to the particular challenge at hand, and is pleased to be able to offer tailor-made solutions in response to informal inquiries as well as solicitations of bids for consulting work. Among the literally hundreds of projects on which ILI has worked are Central Banking Reform (China), Judicial Reform (Commonwealth of Independent States), Transportation Infrastructure to Support Trade (Ukraine), Administrative Law Reform (Ukraine), WTO Judicial Training (China), Legal Education (Russia), Procurement Reform (Honduras).


For over twenty years, the ILI has been publishing books on international and transnational commercial law, trade, litigation, commercial dispute resolution, and foreign legal systems. Recent and ongoing ILI publications include the Digest of United States Practice in International Law, by Sally Cummins and David Stewart, which ILI is proud to publish, in conjunction with the Office of the Legal Adviser of the U.S. Department of State; Introduction to Legal English, by Mark Wojcik, a widely acclaimed, groundbreaking book, now in its second edition, introducing legal English to law students and lawyers whose first language is not English; and International Judicial Assistance, by Bruno A.

IPF is increasingly recognized as a central clearinghouse for policymakers seeking to more effectively engage the United States in the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As we enter a new era of opportunity for Middle East peacemaking, the work of IPF is critical as never before.

IPF believes that through a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel and its Arab neighbors, as well as the region as a whole, will become more secure, prosperous and stable. IPF also sees such a resolution as critical to garnering the international support necessary to effectively wage war on terror and to increase global security. To achieve this goal - and strengthen its interests in the region - the United States must remain a consistent and fully engaged partner in the Middle East peace process. IPF is doing everything possible to encourage and support America in this effort.

Much of this priceless documentation has been assembled and preserved in the American Folklife Center's Archive of Folk Culture, which founding head Robert W. Gordon, in 1928, called a national project with many workers. As we enter the twenty-first century the American Folklife Center is working on the critical issues of digital preservation, Web access, and archival management. The collections of the American Folklife Center include Native American song and dance; ancient English ballads; the tales of Bruh Rabbit, told in the Gullah dialect of the Georgia Sea Islands; the stories of ex-slaves, told while still vivid in the minds of those who endured one of the most harrowing periods of American history; an Appalachian fiddle tune that has been heard on concert stages around the world; a Cambodian wedding in Lowell, Massachusetts; a Saint Joseph's Day Table tradition in Pueblo, Colorado; Balinese Gamelan music recorded shortly before the Second World War; documentation from the lives of cowboys, farmers, fishermen, coal miners, shop keepers, factory workers, quilt makers, professional and amateur musicians, and housewives from throughout the United States; first-hand accounts of community events from every state; and international collections from every region of the world.

Only take undergrads on a case by case basis.The Manuscript Division was one of several departments established in 1897 when the Library of Congress moved from the United States Capitol to a separate building nearby. Its staff of four assumed custody of a collection of twenty-five thousand manuscripts which had accumulated throughout the nineteenth century, chiefly through the purchase in 1867 of Peter Force's collection of Americana, the gift in 1882 of Joseph M. Toner's collection relating to George Washington and American medical history, and several small transfers from the Smithsonian Institution. In 1903, by an act of Congress and an executive order, the State Department began transferring historical papers, including several presidential collections, which had been acquired by the federal government.

Librarian of Congress Herbert Putnam created a Slavic Section in 1907 to cope with this acquisition. The Slavic Section evolved into a Slavic Division after World War I in 1919, providing cataloging and reference services.
As a result of the reorganization of the Library in 1944, in which the cataloging and reference functions were separated, the Slavic Division was abolished. It was reestablished in 1951.
During the 1950s, as new countries were added to its area of responsibility, the Slavic Division evolved into the Slavic and East European Division. The name was changed to the European Division in 1978, when it was expanded to include all of Europe except Iberia and Great Britain.
The European Reading Room should be the starting point for readers and researchers whose interest relates to European countries, including the Russian-speaking areas of Asia, but excluding Spain, Portugal, and the British Isles.
The European Reading Room is staffed by multilingual reference librarians who can direct you to the materials you need and answer reference questions related to the European collections.

We have invested at the micro-level, strengthening Tibetan capacity in rural areas brick by brick. From the beginning, our work has also involved creating new opportunities for training, learning and skills development. But the work has also been about more than bricks and mortar. It is about revitalizing community values and renewing hope and trust in the potential of collective effort. As our work expands in new directions, we seek to broaden our impact by bringing to bear new resources, tools and entrepreneurial strategies. We seek to make our impact more sustainable by identifying and investing in creative and dynamic individuals who are committed to service and to making a positive difference in their communities. And we seek to make our impact global by creating a nexus for building new transnational and institutional partnerships, synergies and cooperative ventures. As we take steps forward in strengthening communities on the Tibetan plateau--making real connections with real people--we also seek to build a broader-based awareness and understanding of our work through our outreach efforts across local, regional and global scales. 7/23/2009 10:10:03Asia, International DevelopmentNon-Governmental Organization (NGO)

Dr. Roger D. Launius, former NASA Chief Historian, wrote an excellent historiographic article about the history of the NASA History Division itself.

Many people are familiar with our publications, as we publish a number of new books on aerospace history every year, as well as several monographs. We also put a number of our publications on-line, especially out of print books, in addition to a variety of other special Web exhibits and information sources. We also publish a quarterly newsletter and an annual round-up of our activities. To get an electronic copy of our newsletter and to find out about these new products and events relating to NASA history, we recommend subscribing to our history listserv. To find out more about what materials we have, you might also check out Research in NASA History (a large pdf file).

The new NASA HQ Historical Reference Collection on-line public database is now available. Four series from the NASA Headquarters Historical Reference Collection have been digitized and made available in this new on-line database for use by researchers. Included are PDFs of Press Kits, Press Releases, Mission Transcripts, and Administrators' Speeches. Researchers may use either the Basic Search or Advanced Search to access these. The HQ History Division staff has digitized all press kits, press releases, mission transcripts, and Administrators' speeches that were available to them in the Historical Reference Collection. Links are provided to other sources where similar and/or additional information can be found.

The American Historical Association annually awards one fellowship for researching aerospace history. For more information, please visit the AHA Web site. We also sponsor The NASA Fellowship in the History of Space Technology, offered by SHOT and supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) History Division. Please visit the SHOT website for more information. The History of Science Society Fellowship in the History of Space Science, supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) History Division, funds a nine-month research project that is related to any aspect of the history of space science, from the earliest human interest in space to the present. Visit the HSS Web site for more information. We also sponsor internships for undergraduate students.

The NASA History Division serves two key functions: fulfilling the mandate of the 1958 Space Act calling for NASA to disseminate aerospace information as widely as possible, and helping NASA managers understand and thus benefit from the study of past accomplishment and difficulties. Thus, in addition to serving internal NASA customers, the NASA History Program is of great interest to a wide panoply of outside citizens who follow aerospace activities such as scholars, journalists, and students. While most of the NASA History Division products are scholarly in nature, they are also largely accessible to interested broader audiences. For a more detailed look into what NASA History can do for you, you might wish to visit our site Thinking about NASA History. Thank you for your interest in NASA history-we hope you find what you desire and find the topic as exciting as we do.

National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 1100 H Street, NWWashington, DC 20005Terri HarperPublic Policy Director202-745-1211202-745-0088, R, WS, Refs (3) The Mission of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is to organize for collective power by advancing transformative work, thinking and leadership of communities and individuals working to end the violence in our lives.

NCADV believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. NCADV recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is the mission of NCADV to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children.

NCADV's work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives - such as safe home and shelter programs - for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of NCADV's caucuses developed to represent the concerns of organizationally under represented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.

NCRC has grown to an association of more than 600 community-based organizations that promote access to basic banking services including credit and savings, to create and sustain affordable housing, job development and vibrant communities for America's working families.

Our members include community reinvestment organizations, community development corporations; local and state government agencies; faith-based institutions; community organizing and civil rights groups; minority and women-owned business associations as well as local and social service providers from across the nation.

NCRC pursues its work through a variety of partnerships and programs. Our National Homeownership Sustainability Fund leverages the expertise of a national network of mortgage finance advisors. They work with servicers and lenders, on behalf of homeowners, to keep working families from losing their homes to foreclosure.

NCRC?s National Training Academy provides training and technical assistance on topics such as understanding how to use the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), fair lending laws, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Homeownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA), fair housing and foreclosure prevention. Our Economic Justice Campaign sites pilot innovative community partnerships to enhance the delivery of financial, technical, and social services to individual consumers, homeowners, and small business.

NCRC?s work is enhanced by two financial service advisory councils consisting of the nation?s largest banks and mortgage finance companies. Quarterly roundtables examine issues involving responsible financial service-related policies, regulations and legislation, as well as innovative products, services and best practices.

NCRC represents its members before Congress, federal regulatory agencies and the press. NCRC routinely testifies before the U.S. Congress, and meets with the leadership of banking and lending regulatory agencies. NCRC frequently provides expert commentary on national television, and our research and policy papers have been cited in hundreds of newspapers in the US.

The NCIL Policy Internship Program is open to students and individuals pursuing a career in a field relevant to NCIL interests, particulaAs a membership organization, NCIL advances independent living and the rights of people with disabilities through consumer-driven advocacy.

Vision: NCIL envisions a world in which people with disabilities are valued equally and participate fully.

The National Council on Independent Living is the longest-running national cross-disability, grassroots organization run by and for people with disabilities. Founded in 1982, NCIL represents thousands of organizations and individuals including: individuals with disabilities, Centers for Independent Living (CILs), Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs), and other organizations that advocate for the human and civil rights of people with disabilities throughout the United States.

An outcome of the national Disability Rights and Independent Living Movements, NCIL was founded to embody the values of disability culture and Independent Living philosophy, which creates a new social paradigm and emphasizes that people with disabilities are the best experts on their own needs, that they have crucial and valuable perspective to contribute to society, and are deserving of equal opportunity to decide how to live, work, and take part in their communities.

Since its inception, NCIL has carried out its mission by assisting member CILs and SILCs in building their capacity to promote social change, eliminate disability-based discrimination, and create opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in the legislative process to affect change. NCIL promotes a national advocacy agenda set by its membership and provides input and testimony on national disability policy.

Sadly, our vision of equality has not yet been fully realized. Many people with disabilities remain imprisoned in nursing homes and our civil rights laws are undermined and devalued on an increasing basis. As a membership organization, NCIL needs the support of all our nation?s advocates in order to achieve our goals and advance the Disability Rights Movement.

From its offices in Washington, DC, the National Council works with other groups to provide resources and maximize effectiveness. To this end, the National Council convenes meetings of the heads of a dozen U.S.-Arab organizations devoted to discussing strategies for sharing information and resources.

The National Council is not a membership organization. Its supporters are primarily individuals and institutions in the United States and the Arab world who have hosted or participated in one of the National Council's programs. Their involvement with the National Council often begins with a single event or activity and then, based on that experience, grows into a broader and lasting relationship based on mutual interests and concerns. By following up with participants, facilitators, hosts, sponsors, friends and supporters and constantly reaching out to others the National Council steadily increases the number of people who are informed and involved in the national dialogue on U.S. relations with the Arab world.

The William J. Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (CHDS) is a product of the Defense Ministerial of the Americas (DMA) process that began in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1995. Latin American civilian and military defense officials expressed deep concerns over the relative lack of civilians prepared to deal knowledgeably with defense and military issues in their countries. In response, US Secretary of Defense William Perry proposed creating a regional center to address this problem during the second Defense Ministerial held at Bariloche, Argentina, in 1996. Secretary Perry envisioned an educational center tailored to the unique requirements of the Western Hemisphere where many countries wished to strengthen civilian defense and security leadership in revitalized democracies. The Perry Center has an active and ongoing Internship Program. We accept applications on a continuous basis. The program affords individuals valuable experience working on defense and security issues affecting the Americas. Perry Center interns work side by side with world renowned faculty and professional staff on a multitude of important international security policy issues. Interns will have the opportunity to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment on the campus of the National Defense University.1/28/2015 12:17:51Defense / Homeland Security, Latin America / CarribbeanSchool

Scholars, journalists, present and former officials and many others have long recognized the need for a systematic approach to obtaining and providing access to declassified national security documentation. Through its collection, analysis and publication of previously classified government documents, the Archive is able to reconstruct U.S. policy making on a variety of foreign, defense and intelligence issues and capture how government decisions are made -- with important implications for ongoing policy.

To carry out its mission, the Archive combines a unique range of functions in one institution. It is simultaneously a research institute on international affairs, a library and archive of declassified U.S. documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, a public interest law firm defending and expanding public access to government information through the FOIA, and an indexer and publisher of the documents.

To be eligible for an internship at ONE, candidates must be undergraduate level students with a minimum of sophomore status or recent graduates within 6 months of completing their undergraduate degree. O
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 3 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa? because the facts show extreme poverty has already been cut in half and can be virtually eliminated by 2030, but only if we act with urgency now.

We've cut poverty in half between 1990-2010

Cofounded by Bono and strictly nonpartisan, we raise public awareness and work with political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in poverty-fighting programs. ONE also works closely with African activists and policymakers as they fight corruption, promote poverty-fighting priorities, monitor the use of aid, and help build civil society and free enterprise.

ONE is not a grant-making organization and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funding. ONE is funded almost entirely by a handful of philanthropists and foundations. We achieve change through advocacy -- our teams in Washington, D.C., London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives.

In recent years, ONE?s members, together with other non-profit partners, have played an important role in persuading governments to support effective programs and policies that are making a measurable difference in fighting extreme poverty and disease. As a result of these advocacy efforts, more than 7.5 million people living in Africa today have access to lifesaving AIDS medication, up from only 50,000 in 2002. Malaria has been cut by 75% in eight African countries since 2000, and 51 million more children across sub-Saharan Africa are now going to primary school.
