The Environmental Justice Unit seeks to advance environmental justice in Colorado in partnership with disproportionately impacted communities, the Environmental Justice Action Task Force, Environmental Justice Advisory Board, Environmental Justice Ombudsperson, and department and environmental program leadership and staff.
We are seeking an undergraduate or graduate-level intern to conduct historical research, including both primary and secondary sources, to help us identify areas that meet the new statutory definition of “disproportionately impacted communities.” To implement that definition, CDPHE is seeking a talented intern familiar with research methods in history, sociology, law, political science, race and ethnic studies, or related fields. The intern would locate and review both primary and secondary sources and summarize their findings to help identify specific places in Colorado with a history of exclusionary laws.
Remote position through either December or April. You’ll be working with an incredible alumnus.
