LDB Welcomes Caitlyn Carmichael and Edward Kunz

February 6, 2017


Washington, D.C: The Brandeis Center is proud to announce its new spring interns for 2017, Caitlyn Carmichael and Edward Kunz. Caitlyn and Edward will bring their diverse experiences and skills to the advancement of justice for all. Over the next few months, they will conduct research and write press releases and articles for the Brandeis Blog. LDB is a national, non-profit civil rights organization that works to combat anti-Semitism in higher education.

“We are honored to have Caitlyn and Edward join our team this spring,” says LDB President and General Counsel Kenneth L. Marcus. “With their talent and passion, they will make great contributions to our work against campus anti-Semitism.”

Caitlyn is a senior at University of Maryland, College Park majoring in Government and Politics, with a minor in Law and Society. She has worked as an advertising-marketing intern at her school newspaper and interned for 3D Communications, a general council law firm in DC, over the summer. For Caitlyn, this internship complements her interests in Constitutionalism and the interaction of public policy and human rights. She is “excited to be a part of LDB and continue [her] studies about the evolution of civil rights.” Caitlyn ultimately hopes to attend law school, after taking a year off to work with human rights organizations.

Edward attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he received a BA in History. He recently spoke on the topic of anti-Semitism in social media at the southeastern conference of the Academic Engagement Network (AEN). Edward’s plan for the future is to attain his doctorate in diplomatic history, then teach history at an institute of higher learning.

“I chose to work with LDB due to both my Jewish background as well as my interest in free speech,” says Edward. “The Brandeis Center fights for the rights I believe in, and any ability to help an organization whose stated objective falls so closely to my own goals is an opportunity I cannot pass up.”

Caitlyn and Edward will join intern Katherine Hung (Harvard ’20), who has been with LDB since the beginning of January .

and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
