2012 LAANE Interns


Interns at Echo Park Lake


Throughout its 20-year history, LAANE has seen its role as not only running successful campaigns to raise standards for low-wage workers and low-income communities, but also training the next generation of social justice activists and leaders.


We believe in fair wages for all workers, including students, which is why we created the Beth & Julia Meltzer Internship Program. With the annual support of private donors, LAANE now works to offer expanded internship training opportunities, where young people can earn a good wage and continue their education by learning about:
  • Communications
  • Community organizing
  • Fundraising
  • IT
  • Legal analysis
  • Research


By contributing to the Beth & Julia Meltzer Internship Program, you are helping to create the next generation of social justice activists. Many interns have gone on to careers in the labor movement, working for other progressive social justice organizations – some have even become campaign directors at LAANE and, assumed leadership roles in local government.
