CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2016-2017 HJAAP EDITORIAL BOARD!!!
DEADLINE: AUGUST 24TH!
ABOUT THE JOURNAL
The Harvard Journal of African American Public Policy (HJAAP)  is the second-oldest, student-run review published annually by the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Created as an effort to promote, discuss and disseminate perspectives affecting communities of color, our mission is to educate and empower in order to improve the quality of public policies affecting the African American community specifically and the African diaspora at-large.

We believe policy is best achieved when it is properly – and holistically – informed. Thus, we seek to expand the conversation to offer compelling analysis and insight that is reflective of our varied perspectives and influential through its reach. In so doing, we hope to further the economic, social, and political empowerment of African Americans.

HJAAP has led the HKS Journal transition from a dense, academic text to a more accessible compilation appealing to a wide-ranging audience. We’ve incorporated musical playlists, contemporary art and poetry into the issue(s), have been cited in amicus briefs and across other publications, and expanded the editorial board to include multiple Harvard graduate institutions.
 
We currently have vacancies for numerous board positions including Editor in Chief, Managing Editors, Senior Editors, Associate Editors, Art Director and Communication Director.
We encourage graduate students from across Harvard to apply!

First-round applications are due by August 24, 2016
