Three recent Beloit alumni are among 138 volunteers from across the country who are currently beginning a year of service through the Lutheran Volunteers Corps (LVC), a national service-leadership program that unites people to work for peace and justice.
Natalie Asmussen’13 (below, right) of St. Paul, Minn., will work as a paralegal intern for The Defender Association in Seattle, Wash. Alex Davenport’13 (below, left) from Ann Arbor, Mich., will be a media intern for the Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund in Berkeley, Calif. Finally, Tobias Gurl’12 (below, center), from Madison, Wis., will work for the Eviction Defense Collaborative as a rent counselor in San Francisco, Calif.
In the LVC program, volunteers−who are working in 14 cities across the U.S.−live together in community houses, practice simple and sustainable living, and work full-time with social justice organizations. LVC is open to people from all spiritual traditions and welcomes people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered in all aspects of the organization.
