Support the Sarah W. Mitchell Public Interest Internship Program
The Sarah W. Mitchell Summer Public Interest Internship Program seeks to promote awareness of and commitment to careers in law and public interest which advance the human, civil, and legal rights of people with disabilities.
In May of 2023, Disability Rights NJ welcomed the inaugural cohort of Sarah W. Mitchell Public Interest Interns for the summer to work with our Investigations & Monitoring and Legal teams.
The program, named for the founding Executive Director of Disability Rights NJ and funded by contributions from our generous supporters, provides internships each summer to two law students and one undergraduate or graduate student in social work or psychology field of study, where the student has a demonstrated interest working with individuals with disabilities.
The internship program cannot exist without the continued support of our donors. Please consider making a contribution to directly support this worthy and valuable program that champions future advocates for the disability community.
In addition to making a financial contribution, there are several other meaningful ways you can support our mission as we advocate for the rights of New Jerseyans with disabilities.
Create a legacy through Planned Giving initiatives.
A living will or living trust is among the most private and sensitive of documents.
