From Kathleen Page of MASSPIRG, Campus Organizer: " I have a great job and get to make an impact on issues I care about. You can work on issues you care about too. I will be at the Just-In-Time Career Fair on April 8 and the deadline to apply in April 10. As a Campus Organizer with U.S.PIRG you’ll get to work with students to make social change on issues that are important to them. Right now the students that I work with are working to increase voter participation in our elections, increase recycling on campus and label food that contains GMOs. It’s great because I’m working directly with people who want to make social change on their campus and in their community. Every day I’m training students to be leaders and activists so we can make more progress and win our campaigns. We are hiring more Campus Organizers and I think you should come and work with me! Our priority campaign is working to give consumers the right to know what's in the food we buy, by labeling food that contains GMO ingredients. Monsanto and other giant agribusinesses are spending millions to oppose labeling efforts—Big Ag spent close to $40 million against a labeling initiative in California last year. With people increasingly concerned about food choices and taking charge of their health, our goal in the next five years is to pass a federal law that will establish GMO labeling in the U.S. But, we can’t do that without finding smart and passionate graduating seniors to help us fight for progress in the coming years. If you’re like me, you’ll agree that these issues are too important to sit on the sidelines. Get serious about social change by applying to run campaigns like this.
Become a Campus Organizer with U.S.PIRG! The deadline to apply in April 10. Please email me with any questions about the position or the application process. "
