U.S. PIRG Needs Your Help

unnamed

My name is Andre Delattre and I’m the Executive Director of U.S. PIRG, the Public Interest Research Group. I’ll be working this year to connect passionate and driven Miami University students with the jobs that will help them make meaningful change and fight for the public interest.

Let me explain what I mean by public interest group: Every day, whether it’s in Washington, D.C., a state capitol, or a corporate boardroom, someone is making a decision that will affect all of us – it could be about our health, our safety, or our democracy. Special interest groups spend billions of dollars to influence these decisions. Someone needs to speak for the public interest. That’s what we do.

Right now, we’re working on everything from reducing the overuse of antibiotics in the food industry to defending consumer protections on Wall Street. We don’t see these issues as liberal or conservative. They’re just problems we shouldn’t tolerate in this day and age. And we’re willing to work with everybody we can to solve them.

This non-partisan, result-oriented approach works. We have a 45-year track record of winning hundreds of new laws and other policies, making the lives of people in states across the country healthier, safer and more secure.

I got my start with U.S.PIRG as a student volunteer during my time at Berkeley. Over three decades later, I am grateful to those who inspired me to take on this meaningful work. That’s why I’m looking for Miami University students – so I can provide them the opportunity to work on issues that they care about and immediately make a difference.

You can learn more about U.S. PIRG here.

I’m hoping you can forward the note below to students on campus. It’s a little more information about our jobs and how to apply.

Thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to working with you this year!

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 Miami 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.
