UNPRISON PROJECT

  • 10 people are interested

unPrison Project is a nonprofit dedicated to serving women, men, and youth in prisons. We focus on raising public awareness about racial and gender disparaities, and public health concerns and mass incarceration. unPrison also develops programs for wellness and skill-building, and partnering with other organizations and companies who share our mission.

We're a social justice nonprofit. In line with this, a Research Assistant will assist in a project about the racial and gender disparities in the auto industry. This position calls for finding on-line content (a few examples below) and then providing a spreadsheet of the article title, link, and a brief paragraph synopsis.
The volunteer(s) research into the auto industry will in the end help identify what gaps need to be addressed and implemented to work towards equity in one of the largest industries in the U.S.

Volunter will work closely with Executive Director. Although the dates for this listing says Dec 28, this can begin immediately, and be flexible with researcher's schedule.

After your read about this opportunity, please email a cover letter to admin@unprison.org to share more about your background, interest, and experience. We looking forward to hearing from you!
