American Progress’ War Room team works to transform progressive ideas into policy through rapid-response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing, political advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders.
To promote American Progress’ work, the War Room team distills complex ideas into digestible messages. The team uses traditional and digital media strategies to make sure that American Progress’ messages will reach leaders in Washington, advocates across the country, and everyday Americans.
War Room interns will learn many of the basic skills needed to become a communications, digital, and organizing professional in a progressive nonprofit. They are involved in all core activities of the War Room team and are assigned day-to-day activities to help integrate them into the work. Interns will help monitor news stories, compile news clips, develop targeted press lists, conduct political research, staff American Progress events, and much more.
