Progressive Public Affairs
111 West Washington, Suite 1920
Progressive Public Affairs is a growing lobbying, political marketing and communications agency based in Chicago. Our business is helping individuals and organizations with their goal of creating a better world. Our clients include state and local elected officials, policy institutes, progressive organizations and government agencies. We’re currently seeking highly qualified, passionate and dedicated young citizens to lend their talents to our growing practice. Interns will be expected to help with the development of an outreach program, which will include managing contacts with media sources and community leaders, creating press releases and marketing causes directly to elected officials. This is an ideal opportunity for a student who wishes to pursue a career in marketing, communications, PR, government, public service or social change.
On a regular day, the associate will be calling the offices of aldermen, state legislators and county leaders, asking the staff if the elected official would support a particular progressive agenda item. The associate would speak directly with elected officials as well to convince them to get behind a particular cause. It's a high-profile and exciting opportunity.
Interns must be politically progressive, self-starters and genuinely interested in talking directly with elected officials to help implement the progressive agenda.
