Communications Intern

About TCP

Created out of the belief that we must cast aside the labels that divide us in order to keep our democracy strong, The Constitution Project (TCP) brings together policy experts and legal practitioners from across the political spectrum to foster consensus-based solutions to the most difficult constitutional challenges of our time. TCP seeks to reform the nation’s broken criminal justice system and to strengthen the rule of law through scholarship, advocacy, policy reform and public education initiatives. Established in 1997, TCP is based in Washington, D.C.


This internship directly supports the work of TCP’s Senior Communications Director and the Communications Coordinator. Communications interns work in a very fast paced environment involving media relations, research, website development, special events and publications.
