U.S. PIRG Fellows work on big problems: whether it’s stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, checking the influence of billionaires and Super PACs over our elections, giving consumers the right to know if GMOs are in their food, passing new recycling laws, or promoting smart transportation options for a 21st century economy. Fellows learn how to become an experienced organizer and advocate for the public interest. This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders within PIRG. Fellows receive a salary of $26,000 in the first year and competitive benefits package for positions in Washington, D.C., Boston and Chicago. Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Start date: August 1.
