The Fund for the Public Interest
3435 Wilshire Blvd #380
Los Angeles, CA
Application Deadline: Available Year-round
Position: Part-time, Unpaid
DescriptionDo you want to make a difference? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and work on the most pressing environmental issues of our generation? Are you ready to stand up to the corporations that are compromising the integrity of our democracy? Apply for a job or an internship with us today.
Change doesn't just happen.
It takes hard work from dedicated individuals to build grassroots organizations from the ground up. This is more true today than ever before. Big, powerful special interests actively fight sensible solutions to environmental problems, government corruption and discrimination, so elected officials only act to bring about those solutions when they know the public is informed and ready to take action.
ResponsibilitiesWhat you'll do:
You will work in the political arena, getting your hands dirty, building organizations and fighting for the victories that put us on a more sustainable and more democratic course.
The heart of our paid jobs is canvassing. In order to build the necessary citizen support, you will go out into communities and go door-to-door, or go into public places and talk with people about the issues, raise money, and build membership for the great organizations we work with.
Our interns work in the office and are a fundamental component to making the office run effectively. You have the opportunity to work with the media, help build coalitions with other organizations and mobilize activists to help us win our campaigns.
