NNIRR's summer 2015 interns, both in our office in Oakland, and by participating "remotely" from the Washington, DC area, made outstanding contributions to the National Network. They tackled the development of our new Just Borders advocacy toolkit; monitored emerging election 2016 issues and candidates and put up a new website section; monitored immigration-related legislation in Congress and developed profiles of key immigration reform policy areas; and provided staff support to one of our global partnerships, the Women & Global Migration Working Group.
