DescriptionSeeking an intern for the Institute for Public Accuracy -- Accuracy.org. We're a non-profit organization that increases the reach of progressive and grassroots organizations by getting them and their ideas into the mainstream media. Our team puts together news releases each day covering the most pressing issues of that news cycle. Our releases source experts whose voices are typically excluded from corporate-backed discourse.
