Evolve California is seeking spring 2017 interns in the Bay Area to help build our campaign to reform Prop. 13 and increase public education funding.

About Evolve:
Evolve is a non-profit committed to restoring our democracy through smart grassroots organizing. We know there are no easy and fast solutions to the huge issues we face today, especially in a system plagued by big money and political infighting. We believe the basic building block of political participation is one person talking to another. So we are building from the ground up, one conversation at a time. We are taking steps every day to achieve our long-term vision of a better California.

We have been working for the past four years to lay the foundation for Prop. 13 reform to finally reinvest in our schools and social services. Through effective grassroots organizing--educating voters, organizing education advocates, and building a statewide network of elected and community leaders--we have made tremendous progress.
