Summer Internships

(I am forwarding this message I got..)

PolicyLink | Lifting Up What Works
Dear Clyde,

PolicyLink has a significant number of summer internships
( this year, including one in
Washington DC and one in New York City as well as those in our Oakland
headquarters. Most, but not all, are for graduate students, and they cover
a wide range of subjects and disciplines, from health to transportation to
the use of social media for organizing. We hope you will look them over and
encourage your outstanding students to apply as soon as possible. The
internships are described on the PolicyLink website.

Thank you,

Victor Rubin

Haiti Donations

As you may know, the nation of Haiti has been devastated this week with deaths estimated to be 45,000-50,000.

There are some easy sources for which you can donate funds -- here is a brief list:
- Texting "Yele" to 501501 will donate $5 to the foundation Yele Haiti ($5 will be added to your next phone bill)
- Texting "Haiti" to 90999 will donate $10 to the Red Cross.
- You can also call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit

The OC Red Cross cannot accept any physical goods right now, so the best way is money donations.
