The US Human Rights Network - a national network of groups and individuals working to strengthen and grow a human rights movement in the United States  which is led by people most directly impacted - is looking for online researchers for its upcoming human rights report. 
This is an unpaid researcher position, but many of the past researchers have found it to be a rewarding experience and have gone on to careers in human rights. 
In addition, researchers will be given credit in the published version of the report and we will waive the ​registration​ ​fee for ​USHRN national​ ​conference​ ​in​ ​December, should you decide to go.
The research will be conducted mostly online and would begin in early-September. We will be conducting a mandatory webinar on September 8, to answer any additional questions.
If you are interested, we would recommend that you read pages 1-6 of the 2014 report here which gives a general overview of human rights and the work that USHRN is doing.

We are looking for researchers in the following issue areas:
  • Human Rights Implementation
  • Privacy
  • Voting Rights
  • Marriage and Family
  • Right to Life and Security of Person
