When you’re looking for a job, it’s hard to remember that it’s not a zero-sum game. Jobs aren’t a fixed resource, so your chance of getting a job actually increases as other people land jobs (though it’s not quite as true for internships). The mechanics behind this aren’t obvious, and that’s a big part of the reason that immigration has become such a divisive issue in our country (and lots of other ones too). The “they took our jobs” mentality satirized by South Park is unfortunately still petty common. The National Immigration Forum is working to change that. They’re a Washington, DC based non-profit organization founded in 1982 that “advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to our nation.”

Join the Forum

Over the past three decades the National Immigration Forum “has worked to advance sound federal immigration solutions through its policy expertise, communications outreach and coalition building work, which forges powerful alliances of diverse constituencies across the country to build consensus on the important role of immigrants in America.” The organization’s priorities include Immigration Reform and Workforce Needs, Integration and Citizenship, Borders, Interior Enforcement, and State Level Issues. What I like about the National Immigration Forum is that they offer an annual Impact Report that dives into what they’re working on and what they’ve accomplished. Look it over, and if you’re inspired to join, visit the National Immigration Forum’s Internship postings on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for an unpaid Communications Intern.
