Shannon Fauver Judicial Campaign

Shannon Fauver for Judge is looking for one graduate student for 5 -10 hours a week, at $13 per hour, which may increase as the campaign progresses. If you are interested in getting a deep understanding of judicial campaigns and how races work, this is the internship for you! For some background, this will be my first campaign, but I was raised to be an activist (my first-time campaigning was when I was five).  I have been a solo practitioner for 17 years and generally handle cases for underserved populations including race, gender identity, social status, nationality or sexual orientation.  So, it is important for me to help people. One of the highlights of my career include filing (along with an associate) the marriage equality cases in Kentucky, which were two of the cases merged with the Obgerfell case to win marriage equality cases in June 2015. This speaks to my passion for fairness and preferred legal strategy.
