What Do Past Interns Say About
Internships at FFL?
"I began at FFL as an intern immediately following the Cardinal O'Connor Conference on Life at Georgetown, an event I helped to organize. This was the day that I met FFL's Honorary Chair, Margaret Colin. (You may know her as Eleanor, Blair's mother from "Gossip Girl.") Her advice rings in my ears today as I continue my pro-life activism: "Remember the woman."
Since January, I have tabled at conferences, researched vital statistics, staffed events for other college activists, and even spoken on Capitol Hill at the FFL intern briefing!
I have been able to communicate with countless student leaders from across the country, giving them ideas on how to help women in the same way that Georgetown does - with a full array of resources and support for pregnant and parenting students, and sharing with them how Feminists for Life can help them start a revolution on their campuses.
While other interns had a forgettable summer in front of a Xerox machine, I had an experience with Feminists for Life that I'll long remember!"
Caitlin Devine, 2009 Intern, Executive Director, 2010 Cardinal O'Connor Conference on Life and President Emeritus, Georgetown University Right to Life
"The summer that I spent interning at FFL opened my eyes to the needs of women and how FFL, through words and action, is meeting those needs. Interning gave me a chance to experience the power of this movement firsthand...Every day I am reenergized by knowing that the work that we do, the work of FFL, makes a difference in the lives of women, children and families."
Natalie Nardelli, graduate student
"We interns were involved in so many
things, including welfare reform, child support, and pro-life legislation
on the Hill."
"It was an eye-opener to work with
so many groups that have such different approaches to solving the problems
faced by women and children."
Loyola University, Chicago
"Interns work directly with the executive
director. I was also given countless opportunities to make use of my talents
and pursue my individual interests."
Ohio Wesleyan University
"FFL is in a thousand places at once:
on the Hill, in the media, looking for real solutions to the problems
