"I couldn't have asked for a better internship. Everyone was so knowledgeable, passionate, supportive, encouraging, and brilliant. I greatly expanded my vision of justice and developed my critique of the current system and my place in transforming it. I truly feel that DUHC was my launch pad; and I'm thankful it was so solid." ~Teri

"First and foremost, my internship gave me the confidence to undertake activist efforts, and to use my work to embody the values I subscribe to. It taught me the importance of seeking out other organizers, and forming a small community of people who trust each other, and our willing to commit themselves to their activism. It was also at Democracy Unlimited where I learned practical organizing skills, for example how to efficiently run meetings, how to recruit volunteers, and host workshops." ~Claire
