About National Organization for Women – New York City
National Organization for Women – New York City (NOW-NYC) advocates for the women and girls of New York. We aim to defend reproductive rights, fight economic inequality, promote women’s leadership, and end discrimination and violence against women. As the largest NOW chapter in the country, we play a key role in shaping the debate on the issues that impact women, creating policies, and holding government and businesses accountable to the women of New York.
Women’s Justice NOW is our charitable partner organization, supporting our public education and outreach efforts and providing legal advocacy and referrals to women in need. Our team aids survivors in navigating the criminal justice system to get their cases investigated and to seek justice in the courts. We are leading the fight against drug-facilitated sexual assault – implementing our research into initiatives to train law enforcement officials and enable prosecutors to arrest and indict perpetrators.
Thank you for your interest in working with NOW-NYC. We have filled our internship positions for the summer. Please check back in mid-June for postings on opportunities to intern with us this fall.
What do our intern alums have to say?
“This internship showed me what it was like to work with a non-profit. I got to see the back end of how big events work, how social media is managed, and how campaigns are run. I got to understand the nitty-gritty details that go into producing smooth sailing work at a non-profit organization focused on women’s issues—a field in which I intend to pursue as a career after I graduate. This internship gave me a great sneak peek into what I intend to do after college.”

“During my time at NOW-NYC, I got to perform a broad array of tasks and felt like my contributions were not only necessary, but meaningful. I would definitely recommend applying to NOW-NYC’s internship program to anyone committed to feminist activism and advocacy who is excited to delve into every aspect of non-profit work!”
