In a collaboration between the Department of International Studies (INT) and JooJoo Azad, we're excited to be launching a series of paid internships for students to get involved in the launch and development of a sewing co-operative for refugee and low-income immigrant women here in Chicago! Most recently featured in the in-print September issue of VOGUE magazine, this sewing co-operative looks at labor holistically, and along with providing women with employment, also provides free social services, legal services, healthcare, mental health, transportation, and childcare, among other services. This internship, if funded, would allow INT students the exciting opportunity to work hands-on with this co-operative and gain valuable and unique experiences in entrepreneurship, business development, fundraising and budgeting, as well as insight into larger issues on themes of: immigration and migration, socioeconomic status, womens' issues, Islamophobia, and labor rights.
