Job Opportunities

Below are current openings with Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California or our 501(c)(3) sister-arm, California Planned Parenthood Education Fund, or other Planned Parenthood local organizations in California:


Legal Intern Summer 2017

Classification: Internship
Reports to:
Chief Legal Counsel
Region: Sacramento, CA
Department: Legal

Organization Background

The Legal Department provides legal representation to two organizations: Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) and California Planned Parenthood Education Fund (CPPEF).  Together, these organizations handle the state-wide legal, legislative, regulatory, advocacy, and electoral work for California’s seven separately incorporated Planned Parenthood Affiliates.  These Affiliates operate 115 health centers and handle more than 1.6 million patient visits annually.

PPAC (a 501(c)(4) organization) follows state and federal legislation in a number of public policy arenas.  It leads the policy, legislative and electoral work for the California Affiliates and coordinates social media campaigns.  CPPEF (a 501(c)(3) organization) promotes education, counseling, and clinical services in the fields of reproductive health care and family planning, and more recently, primary care.  We handle administrative, legislative and regulatory actions, including statewide and local initiatives, as well as, on occasion, litigation.  We coordinate a number of cross-affiliate projects and regularly convene meetings and trainings for the California Affiliates on a host of issues.

Our mission is to create a personally and politically safe climate in which individuals have universal and unfettered access to sexual and reproductive health care and can make their own decisions about these services.

PPAC’s vision and leadership has spurred lawmakers to enact legislation that makes California a national leader in the funding of family planning and other reproductive health care services.  PPAC played a key role in augmenting state funding for family planning and has played a leading role in the fight against anti-choice legislation for 40 years.

Values

For more than 40 years, PPAC/CPPEF has been on the forefront of successful efforts to protect the reproductive freedom of all Californians. We believe that by honoring certain core values in our everyday work, we will be better able to promote sound public policies relating to reproductive health care, family planning services, comprehensive sexuality education, and clinic services, and ensure access to all.  By working together effectively we are able to serve our affiliates and achieve our common goals.  Our values are: personal responsibility, leadership, communication (effective problem solving, conflict resolution), teamwork, excellence, innovation, ethics, integrity and honesty.

Responsibilities

Law students are expected to have strong legal research and writing skills and an interest in healthcare, social justice issues, and reproductive rights. Responsibilities include:

  • In-depth legal and legislative research, analysis and drafting;
  • Presentations to affiliate staff on healthcare related issues;
  • Monitoring and responding to legislative, regulatory, and other litigation and policy developments, including legislative hearings, administrative rulemaking, relevant litigation, and other events; and
  • Development and drafting of policy and advocacy materials, including bill analyses, fact sheets, and talking points, for use in lobbying activities and outreach.

Qualifications

  • Excellent legal research and writing skills
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite, including internet research
  • Demonstrated commitment to reproductive rights and social justice
  • Interest in healthcare and public interest law

Position Type:  Internship

40 hours per week for at least 10-12 weeks. This position is based in Sacramento, CA. 

Compensation

Our internships are typically unpaid. We are happy to work with institutions to secure fellowships or academic credit when available. We have a small budget to either supplement or cover one internship.

How to Apply:
