Civil Rights Internship Opportunity in Boston

Intake and Referral Volunteers for the ACLU of Massachusetts

Volunteers needed for intake and referral of complaints about civil liberties violations and general reception duties. Volunteers are responsible for handling telephone complaints and determining whether they fall within ACLUM's areas of concern - namely First Amendment violations (free speech, assembly, press, and religion), illegal search, privacy, racial equality, women's rights, immigrants' rights, employment, LGBTQ rights, prisoners' rights, and police abuse.

Volunteers screen calls and write up appropriate complaints for review by our intake attorneys. Volunteers work in four-hour shifts (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. or 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.) and are an integral part of the daily operations of the ACLU of Massachusetts. Intake volunteers need to be able to commit to a regular weekly 4-hour shift.

Please contact us at if you are interested in having a regular shift (an afternoon or morning on one or more days, depending on current needs).
Other volunteer opportunities may be available depending on your availability and background/skills.
Thank you for your interest in the ACLU of Massachusetts!
