Job Description:

Do you think the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms makes no sense? Is overturning Citizens United one of the most important things we can do to put regular Americans back in the driver’s seat of our democracy? Do we need to go above and beyond to protect consumers from unsafe or unscrupulous practices?

If you agree — and if you’re willing to work harder than you’ll work at most jobs to win smart solutions on real problems that affect millions of lives — consider a job as a fellow with U.S. PIRG.

The Fellowship is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. You won’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing.
