The Fund for the Public Interest is seeking hard-working individuals with great communication skills and a passion for social change to fill our campaign staff and Field Manager positions across the country this summer.
The Trump administration and some leaders in Congress are pursuing an agenda that puts our environment and everyday people at risk. This summer the Fund is running nationwide campaigns to defend our most important environmental and consumer protections. To tackle climate change and ensure a clean environment, it won't be enough to be right or have a great argument. To get decision makers to do the right thing, you need hundreds, thousands, sometimes millions of people to make their voices heard through petitions, emails, small donations, and meetings. Change takes people power and the Fund builds that power. For more than 30 years, we’ve helped to win campaigns and build resources for the nation’s top public interest and environmental organizations, including Environment America and USPIRG.
Currently, we have paid Canvasser and Field Manager positions open in Portland. These are full-time positions at an average of $10-15/hour
While on staff, you will gain knowledge of pressing issues facing our country, learn how to effectively generate public support to influence decision makers, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.
