U.S. PIRG needs your help

U.S. PIRG is about standing up for the public interest and doing all we can to win – the same approach that over the past 45 years has helped us win literally hundreds of victories. Because of these laws and other policies, people are recycling more and wasting less, buying healthier and safer products, getting a better deal on credit card fees and student loans, driving cleaner and safer cars, drinking cleaner water, and living longer, healthier lives.

We’re looking for smart, passionate, and driven students who work well in a team and want to make a tangible difference. Specifically, we’re hiring our 2018 class of U.S. PIRG Fellows and Digital Campaigners to help run powerful campaigns for the public interest.

We need students from Northwestern University to join our fight and become leaders who will stand up for what’s right.

The Fellowship program is a great entry point to fact-based advocacy. During your 2-year fellowship, you will learn everything you need to know to become an advocate for issues like consumer protection, government reform, and modernizing our elections.

As a Digital Campaigner, you will support our campaign team by running a powerful digital campaign to tackle problems like the overuse of antibiotics and overturning Citizen’s United.
