The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  It runs campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America.  This summer the Fund for the Public Interest will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

Last summer the Fund’s staff helped ban off-shore drilling to protect our coasts, repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and increase food safety standards to make school lunches safer- all while building valuable leadership skills.

Currently, the Fund has paid positions open on its campaign staff in each of its locations. Interested candidates are required to be hard workers who have excellent communication skills.

As a member of the staff, you will fundraise, build membership for partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues.  You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations.  While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.

The Fund for the Public Interest will be holding information sessions and interviews at Wesleyan on April 3 and 4.
