The ACLU has a long history and for any person interested in politics it would be extremely beneficial to have in internship. The experience gained would be priceless as there are so many people who still do not have quality and fair rights. It would be good for any future politician to see who they really should be fighting for and who they say they are getting into office to help.
An internship with the American Civil Liberties Union would be a big step for a career path as long as two conditions are true. One you have to believe in the message of the American Civil Liberties Union and two you have to want to pursue a career in the same job field that the internship is in.
The American Civil Liberties Union is an important non-profit organization that seeks to protect the basic rights of Americans. An internship with this organization could teach young people how to work with national issues. Obviously, associations to the ACLU would help people interested in the Democratic party, but not the Republican party.
It depends on the association that wants to gotten, and the party or political affiliation of the person, but an internship with the American Civil Liberties Union could definitely be a good stepping stone. The ACLU is a very well respected, at least professionally, organization, and people are often impressed by such internships.
Yes, an ACLU internship would be a helpful career step for a prospective politician, if they wanted to be a democrat. The ACLU is not very widely respected among Republicans. But for a democrat, time with the ACLU can teach the young person how to articulate important issues. This will help later on, when prospective voters want to know about these issues.
