The American Foreign Service Association (AFSA), established in 1924, is the professional association of the United States Foreign Service. 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.

Our history: CLASP began in 1968 with an open-ended mission: to be a voice in Washington for institutions and people not represented by special interests, through legal, legislative, and regulatory channels. Early on, staff attorneys were involved in a broad array of issues from mining safety, the environment, and mental health, to women’s rights, consumer protection, and media access. As highly effective organizations spun off from CLASP to take on each of these issues, CLASP focused in on poverty as its central mission starting in the early 1980s. Drawing on CLASP’s history of deeply credible analysis, a bias towards action, and practical, yet daring solutions, what has remained constant over all these years is our effective advocacy and ability to provide a trustworthy, respected voice in Washington for disadvantaged populations. To learn more about CLASP's history, click here.

Who we are: The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is a national, nonpartisan, anti-poverty organization advancing policy solutions that work for low-income people. We offer nearly 50 years of trusted expertise, a deeply knowledgeable staff, and a commitment to practical yet visionary approaches to opportunity for all. We lift up the voices of poor and low-income children, families, and individuals, equip advocates with strategies that work, and help public officials put good ideas into practice. Our solutions directly address the barriers that individuals and families face because of race, ethnicity, and immigration status, in addition to low income. We know there is no silver bullet, so we put good ideas together for maximum impact—such as “two-generational” approaches that help both children and parents escape poverty.

Persian or Arabic language skills (including writing/reading) preferred.When we started CLIME in 2006, our goal was to work in partnership with democratic actors in the Middle Easter to deepen their societies’ understanding of the building blocks of liberal democracy - not only free elections, but also principles such as equal rights for all citizens, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of enterprise and separation of powers. We also aimed to conduct communications and advocacy training for activists, and thus enhance their capacity to galvanize grassroots support for reform.

In 2011, we were both excited and anxious as popular protests in the region brought down longstanding dictatorships in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, and the promise of change. We have no illusions that the path to real liberal democracy in the region is hard and from assured. Our mission is more relevant than ever. While for a variety of reasons we have embarked on other endeavors, we were delighted to transfer CLIME's materials and resources to two wonderful organizations that share our values - the American Islamic Congress and the E-Collaborative for Civic Education. Meanwhile the hundreds of brave activists that we have had the privilege to work with over the years continue to dedicate themselves to bringing freedom to their region. This site is dedicated to our work together.

CLIME is a non-profit organization that supports individuals and civic groups that are spreading democratic values of liberty and tolerance in the Middle East. Through its network of democratic activists throughout the region, CLIME advocates peaceful transitions to political systems that protect individual liberties, enable full political participation, and respect ethnic, religious and political pluralism. CLIME works with Middle Eastern democrats to deepen their societies? awareness of the building blocks of liberal democracy while enhancing their capacity to galvanize grassroots constituencies for political reform. CLIME conducts training projects to help activists improve their grassroots outreach, communications and advocacy skills, and educational projects to deepen understanding of liberal democracy.

Economic Strategy Institute 1730 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, Suite 414Washington DC | 20036 (202) 213-7051(202) 965-1104 ESI is not offering internships at this time.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.

2017 marks the 4th year of the next sixty years of Korea-US relations. In 2013, we celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the ROK-US Alliance, formed in 1953. In May 2013, the two countries adopted the Joint Declaration in Commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Alliance between the Republic of Korea and the United States of America. This declaration celebrated the development of the Alliance which has evolved into a comprehensive strategic alliance and laid out the path for its future development.

We also celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA). For the past five years, the KORUS FTA has provided tangible benefits to both economies with increases in trading goods, services, and investments and has also played a major role in developing bilateral economic cooperation. In particular, despite the global economic recession, the bilateral trade volume has exceeded US$100 billion for the past five years, with constant growth in services and investment.

The United States--and its democratic allies--face many foreign policy challenges. They come from rising and resurgent powers, including China and Russia. They come from other autocracies that violate the rights of their citizens. They come from rogue states that work with each other in ways inimical to our interests and principles, and that sponsor terrorism and pursue weapons of mass destruction. They come from Al Qaeda and its affiliates who continue to plot attacks against the United States and our allies. They come from failed states that serve as havens for terrorists and criminals and spread instability to their neighbors.

The United States faces these challenges while engaged in military operations across the globe, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. The sacrifice of American lives and significant economic expenditure in these conflicts has led to warnings of U.S. strategic overreach, and calls for American retrenchment. There are those who hope we can just return to normalcy--to pre-9/11 levels of defense spending and pre-9/11 tactics. They argue for a retreat from America’s global commitments and a renewed focus on problems at home, an understandable if mistaken response to these difficult economic times.

The Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) Internship Program seeks rising college seniors and graduate students of the highest caliber with interest in the fields of, but not limited to, international studies, defense, national security, democracy and human rights, political science, and foreign affairs. FPI interns are given substantial work in current events research, policy communication, and think tank operations. Interns are encouraged to attend stimulating discussions around the local D.C. area and to interact closely with FPI's in-house experts. Though the FPI internship program is unpaid, participants gain valuable skills, a broader understanding of the policy world, invaluable experience, and networking opportunities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This publicity helps to embarrass abusive governments in the eyes of their citizens and the world. Human Rights Watch then meets with government officials to urge changes in policy and practice -- at the United Nations, the European Union, in Washington and in capitals around the world. In extreme circumstances, Human Rights Watch presses for the withdrawal of military and economic support from governments that egregiously violate the rights of their people.

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.

In partnership with dynamic social movements, we turn transformative policy ideas into action.

As Washington’s first progressive multi-issue think tank, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) has served as a policy and research resource for visionary social justice movements for over four decades — from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s to the peace and global justice movements of the last decade. Some of the greatest progressive minds of the 20th and 21st centuries have found a home at IPS, starting with the organization’s founders, Richard Barnet and Marcus Raskin. IPS scholars have included such luminaries as Arthur Waskow, Gar Alperovitz, Saul Landau, Bob Moses, Rita Mae Brown, Barbara Ehrenreich, Roger Wilkins and Orlando Letelier.

The Institute for Policy Studies is the nation's oldest multi-issue progressive think tank. 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 IISS is a membership organisation. The Council and Staff of the Institute are international and its Membership is drawn from more than 90 countries.

The Institute?s work is grounded in an appreciation of various political, economic and social problems that cause instability, as well as the factors that can lead to international cooperation. Through its ?para-diplomatic? activity it provides much of the oil that eases the friction
of international affairs. The IISS has unique convening power.

It holds influential events each year in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia as well as in Latin America and Africa. The IISS is truly a global organisation.

There are also occasional publications such as the IISS Strategic Dossier range.

The range of IISS publications, its convening power, and the Institute?s strong international policy perspective make the IISS a key actor in the global strategic debate.

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).

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.

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 Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) Sang Han 202 478-6040 What is NASULGC

The National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) is a voluntary, non-profit association of public research universities, land-grant institutions, and many state university systems and has member campuses in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. The association is governed by a Chair and Board of Directors elected from the member colleges, universities, and university systems. Its president is Peter McPherson, who directs a staff of about 35 at its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The association?s membership includes 216 institutions, consisting of state universities, land-grant universities, and state-university systems. The total includes 76 U.S. land-grant institutions, of which 18 are the historically black institutions. In addition, NASULGC represents the interests of the nation?s 33 American Indian land-grant colleges through the membership of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC). NASULGC campuses enroll more than 3.8 million students and are estimated to have more than 20 million alumni.

With roots going back to 1887, NASULGC is the nation?s oldest higher education association. In 1963, the American Association of Land-Grant Colleges and Universities merged with the National Association of State Universities to form the present National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, or NASULGC(pronounced na SUL jick).

NASULGC is dedicated to excellence in learning, discovery and engagement. The association?s overriding mission is to support high-quality public higher education and its member institutions as they perform their teaching, research, and public service roles. NASULGC provides a forum for the discussion and development of policies affecting higher education and the public interest.

NASULGC?s agenda includes projects in the areas of accountability (including a Voluntary System of Accountability or VSA); global competitiveness (including the education of science and math teachers); internationalization of university campuses (including establishing a national study abroad program); reauthorization of the Farm Bill (including NASULGC?s CREATE-21 proposal); and much more.

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.

Interns must work a minimum of 15 hours per week (office is open 9:30 am – 5:30 pm, Monday - Friday); and

Certain events may require intern attendance outside regularly scheduled hours.
Founded in 1983, the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations is an American non-profit, non-governmental, educational organization dedicated to improving American knowledge and understanding of the Arab world. The Council has been granted public charity status in accordance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

From its offices in Washington, D.C., and through the alumni of its educational programs spread all across the United States, the National Council works with sister organizations to share resources and maximize effectiveness. To this end, the Council has played a leading role in convening regular meetings of the heads of a dozen Arab-U.S. relations organizations devoted to sharing information, discussing strategies, avoiding duplication of effort, and identifying and pursuing opportunities for greater inter-organizational cooperation.

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.
