The Clara Bell Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project
The Clara Bell Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project, which is a part of the ACLU of Pennsylvania, has been working to ensure access to reproductive rights since 1979. Most recently we have been working on issues related to improving services for incarcerated women including groundwork for a pilot project to deliver contraceptive services to women during their incarceration. We have developed a unique set of materials for health care provides to increase their willingness to allow minors to consent to services, aptly called "Do you have to tell my mom? Minors, Health Care & The Law." We are also working on increasing access to emergency contraception for survivors of rape and sexual assault.
The Duvall Project has a long history of working with students. Our role in mentoring young people who are interested in reproductive health and freedom is an important part of our identity as an organization. We strive to provide students with the opportunity to do meaningful work, and we encourage them to voice their own opinions and ideas about the work we are undertaking.
The Clara Bell Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project seeks an intern to assist with laying the groundwork for a pilot study to deliver contraceptive services to women during their incarceration. Fels intern will conduct meetings, conduct a literature review, and coordinate outreach efforts. The Fels intern will work on a proposal for conducting a pilot study to provide contraceptive services to women during their incarceration. This internship provides the unique opportunity to work with organizations at the local, state, and national level, and allows the intern to have a great deal of impact in shaping the direction of the project. The interns are paid a stipend of $6,000. The internship will begin around May 16, 2011 but the date is flexible.
Generally, we are looking for graduate students with a demonstrated interest in women's and reproductive right issues either through coursework, volunteering, or job experience.
