Interested in progressive politics and communications? Join End Citizens United’s communications team this Spring and help us fight for meaningful campaign finance reform in the new Democratic House!
ECU is a grassroots campaign finance reform group dedicated to getting Big Money out of politics. We spearheaded the No Corporate PAC movement, helped elect nearly 60 new candidates to Congress, and elevated campaign finance reform as a national priority.
As a member of the communications team, you’ll be working directly with us to help frame and shape the reform movement. Intern responsibilities include drafting press releases, monitoring breaking news, compiling news clips, writing op-eds, and getting a front row seat to progressive politics and campaigns. Interns will learn directly about how to deal with reporters on and off-the-record, the ins-and-outs of political communications.
Interns should be self-starters with an interest in progressive politics and campaigns. We are looking for organized individuals with strong writing skills and the ability to copy-edit and write creatively for a variety of audiences. Attention to detail is a must.
Interns will also benefit from the Intern Educational Program, which aims to educate interns on Democratic politics and the issue of reform while providing unique opportunities to hone their professional development skills. The program includes presentations with top Democratic professionals, tutorials on networking best practices, and discussions on themes within the reform movement. Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to interact directly with and receive professional guidance from all members of ECU and will gain strong experience in progressive politics.
Qualified applicants should submit resume, cover letter, and writing sample to with “Political Communications Internship” in the subject line. Please indicate in your cover letter where you viewed this posting. The intern will receive a monthly stipend.
