Intern with us!

We're looking for INTERNS!

Join us for a remote internship this summer!

In this crucial moment we are mobilizing thousands of people across the Hudson Valley to demand healthcare for all and housing justice in New York, and to get three progressive women elected to the New York State Senate.

Our summer interns will have an important role to play in mobilizing people around progressive state-level campaigns for Healthcare For All, Housing Justice, Immigration Justice, and Energy Justice! 

We will continue to build the sustainable organization we need to win big fights.  From making hundreds of thousands of phone calls and recruiting hundreds of volunteers, to managing the data and raising the money to make all this work possible — there are many roles to play in building the political power we need to win transformative change!

 

Interns will get to learn fundamental skills of organizing for change and be a critical part of one of the fastest-growing organizations in the Hudson Valley.
