Twenty Days of Interns: Jessica Rigsbee

This summer, 20 Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law interns are spread across four states and ten countries, going not only with the Gospel, but also with legal training and a passion to see the Lord’s justice carried out on a fallen earth.

Jessica spent her summer in Strasbourg, France working with the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ). The ECLJ is an international, Non-Governmental Organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights in Europe and worldwide.
The ECLJ advocates in particular the protection of religious freedoms and the dignity of the person with the European Court of Human Rights and the other European Institutions. Jessica assisted the ECLJ with translating many petitions and documents to be used to raise awareness of current human rights issues in the Council of Europe, the Parliamentary Assembly, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Whether fighting sex trafficking in India and Indonesia, advocating against partial-birth abortion in Europe, advancing the rule of law in Uganda, or securing religious freedom in Bulgaria and South Africa, our interns are making a difference.
