Our Field Organizer will work with our people around the country on the transportation campaign, setting them up for campaign tactics or reaching out to the media, public leaders and civic organizations yourself.

Transportation Digital Organizer, U.S. Public Interest Research Group, Denver, CO
The Public Interest Network is hiring five digital organizers ready to protect the environment and restore our democracy. One of these organizers will be focused on our 21st Century Transportation campaign. This is an entry-level position for recent-college graduates ready to turn their online skills into political action. We’re looking for people who are eager and ready to learn new skills, want to work hard, and who won’t be satisfied until they win.

Major funding for the position comes from the California Endowment and a generous anonymous donor. And, of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our readers.
