Come intern with the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative (SIFI)!

Get direct services experience working with detained people in Northern Louisiana this summer. We are a small office connected with a much broader initiative to bring representation to detained folks in the Southeast, where representation rates in immigration detention facilities can be as low as 6%. You will be working directly each day with people detained at La Salle detention facility in Jena, Louisiana, living on site with an energetic and supportive team, and getting a ton of hands-on experience in bond and parole advocacy.
