Fuse is the state’s largest progressive organization, with over 100,000 members across the state who organize online and on the ground on issues that matter. An internship with Fuse will give your students hands-on experience in political and issue advocacy and an opportunity to network with local experts and see how campaigns really work. Past interns have been instrumental in developing our Progressive Voter’s Guide ( viewed by over 100,000 Washingtonians), traveled to Washington D.C. to represent Washington citizens for tax equality, and been given the opportunity to work with some of the best and most experienced people in the progressive community! We want to extend this opportunity to more local students and we hope that you can help.
I’ve already posted our listing at Career Services, but I wanted to explain in a little more detail how our opportunities could benefit your students, so that you can help us get the word out.
This fall we have several research and writing needs. Our growing research department examines PDC filings, news accounts, and produces issue papers and profiles of candidates and political organizations. Interns would come away with a deep knowledge of the progressive political landscape, as well as get research and writing experience.
Our organizing program is working to grow an offline community of activists building power in their districts with voter contact through phones, doors, house parties, block parties, and other neighborhood and community events. An intern here would gain invaluable experience in direct voter contact and strategy, and would be able to use these skills in other campaign work. Additionally, interns would help with creating powermaps for legislative districts across the state, track and database important influentials information, and gain valuable experience in donor research.
Please let me know if you need additional information, and please let your students know that Fuse is looking for a few great interns.
Thanks very much for your time,
