Fund for the Public Interest

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit that builds the people power it takes to win hard-fought campaigns and make real change on some of the most important issues of our day. Right now, the Fund is hiring activists to work on campaigns for America's leading grassroots action groups - here in Portland, we're working with Environment Oregon on a campaign to hold polluters accountable when they violate environmental laws. Oil, chemical, gas, pharmaceutical, and agricultural companies are getting away with dumping their waste into our clean air and clean water. Far too often the government fails to step in and stop them, even though they know that the companies are breaking the law and threatening our public health.
