Intern with Move to Amend!

interns.jpgMove to Amend is the national campaign to Abolish Corporate Personhood and get money out of politics through community organizing and grassroots movement building. We are mobilizing a movement to amend the US Constitution to establish that corporations are not people and that financial contributions to political campaigns are not free speech.

We are seeking bright, energetic folks to join our intern team! Move to Amend interns work with national staff and board as well as grassroots volunteers to further the mission of Move to Amend and learn important organizing skills.

Some things to note:

  • All national internships are telecommute so applicants must have access to reliable internet, computer with webcam, and phone.
  • Unfortunately we are unable to accept applicants who will be working outside the US during any part of the internship cycle. No exceptions. Sorry!
