Nonprofit Entry-Level Campaign Staff

Chicago, Illinois
6 Sep 2022

Who We Are:

The Fund for the Public Interest is seeking hard-working individuals with good communication skills and a passion for social change to fill citizen outreach and field manager positions across the country this summer. We currently have paid canvasser and field manager positions open in select cities across the country.

In Chicago we're working with Environment Illinois on a campaign to reduce plastic pollution. A lot of pollution comes from things we don't need and we've known for decades we shouldn't be using-like foam cups and take-out containers. Each year, more than 11 million pounds of plastic ends up in Lake Michigan, where it injures and kills our fish and birds. So Environment Illinois is working to pass a statewide ban on single-use polystyrene foam cups and containers.
