Interning with APAN never felt like a job! It was extremely fulfilling, uplifting, and enjoyable working with passionate advocates during a pivotal time for Palestine. Highlights from my experience include meeting UN Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese and lobbying politicians across the continent to stand up for Palestine. I highly suggest applying!
