Research and Data Entry for Web-Searchable Database of Human Relations Resources

1. OBJECTIVE:
To procure a student intern to perform research of Los Angeles-base human relations organizations and database entry of this information for the Commission's searchable website database of human relations resources. Position requires cursory knowledge of human relations resources in the County of Los Angeles, for example, community based organizations that provide assistance in the areas of hate crime victim assistance, human relations curriculum, peer mediation, conflict resolution, and support services serving the many ethnic, cultural and faith communities in the County. Knowledge of data entry systems is also required.

2. BACKGROUND:
The Los Angeles Human Relations Commission is one of the oldest and largest agencies of its kind in the United States. The Commission works to foster harmonious and equitable inter-group relations, empower communities and institutions, engage in non-violent conflict resolution and promote an informed and inclusive multicultural society. The Commission is contacted for hate crime victim assistance and anti-discrimination resources by schools, cities, community leaders, hate crime victims, the faith community, immigrant communities, and several other sectors of Los Angeles County. In this way, the Commission's Human Relations Database will provide vital and valuable information and resources that will help communities, cities, schools, businesses, and individuals stand up to and address hate crimes and discrimination all over Los Angeles County.

3. PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE:
The period of performance will commence upon execution of agreement between the intern and the Commission. All tasks described in Section 1 above will be completed by 2 months after the date of execution of such agreement. Project hours will be based on availability of intern.

4. COMPENSATION:
Due to restricted budget of the Commission resultant from across-the-board budget cutbacks in Los Angeles County departments, the Commission is unable to provide financial compensation for interns. However, the Commission has remained an attractive placement for interns due to exposure gained and relationships built with some of the most prominent agencies in Los Angeles working in the area of hate crime, civil rights, social justice, anti-discrimination, and immigrant rights
