Dear Student/Researcher:

Part of the mission of the Anne Braden Institute is to bridge the gap between academic research and social activism. The information below has been compiled for you as part of that mission.

This list contains information about social justice/grassroots organizations in the metro Louisville area and around the nation. Many of the organizations are in need of volunteers, have internship opportunities or job openings available. Feel free to contact them directly about current opportunities. If you have any questions, a member of the Institute staff will be happy to help you.

We realize that this list is not comprehensive and are continually working to update it. If your organization would like to be listed, please send us your information for consideration. Thank you!
