#StopUnpaidInternships: Help CSUN Latino Journalists Club raise money for internships

Without an internship, graduating journalism students don’t have a chance in the real world.

Many paid internships are extremely competitive. Not all media organizations can afford bringing on a paid intern. At the same time, not all students can afford taking on an unpaid internship.

That’s where you come in: The CSUN Latino Journalists Club, a student chapter of CCNMA and NAHJ, has a launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $3,000 in funds for two paid internships this summer.

The student organization has partnered with the ethnic media collective LA Beez and CCNMA: Latino Journalists of California to give students the opportunity to intern with either the Asian Journal or El Impulso and cover underrepresented communities in Los Angeles.

By contributing to this campaign you will help these students get the experience they need without the stress of holding down multiple jobs.

They campaign’s goal is almost halfway there! Help them reach their $3,000 goal by donating today: http://igg.me/at/stopunpaidinternships/x/10197937.
