Work to protect the Boundary Waters with Environment Minnesota this summer!
The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns. In Minnesota, we’ll be working with Environment Minnesota to protect the Boundary Waters from toxic sulfide mining.
Last summer our staff worked to stop toxic gas drilling, end subsidies for junk food, and build support for equal rights for all Americans. Throughout the summer, our staff will build valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations across the country. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.
As a member of our staff, you will fund-raise, build the membership of our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on critical issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you will gain knowledge of pressing issues, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.
