Fall 16-17 Internship Opportunity
Dominicanos USA (DUSA) is a 501C-3 non-profit and nonpartisan organization, founded in 2013, that empowers Dominican-Americans by registering, educating and mobilizing them to go out and vote.

At this stage, we are looking for individuals interested in the digital media, community outreach, and administration aspects of the organization.
