The Public Justice Food Project seeks a Food Project Communications Intern for summer 2021 to join the Food Project team in our communications and outreach efforts.

The Public Justice Food Project is the only legal project in the country focused solely on dismantling industrial animal agriculture and supporting a vision of animal agriculture that is sustainable, humane, and owned by independent farmers. We believe we cannot make change alone, and that we must align ourselves with allies across movement sectors and combine litigation with basebuilding and narrative shift to create meaningful and lasting change.

Position Summary: The Food Project Communications Intern supports the Food Project team by creating written and visual content to engage different audiences, and expand people’s understanding of issues surrounding food, farming, work, climate, racial inequity, and more. This intern will also help with other communications and basebuilding efforts.

We are seeking applicants looking for communications, non-profit, and advocacy experience. Through this internship, you will gain valuable experience in advocacy-oriented writing, digital strategies, and organizing. The ideal candidate for this position is a self-starter, with strong verbal and written communications skills, and an interest in the nonprofit sector. The position is a remote position due to the pandemic, but the intern must be physically based in D.C., Virginia, Maryland, or California. Applicants based in other states may inquire about eligibility.

Responsibilities:

·       Write blog posts, social media posts, emails, and other content for the Food Project

·       Create graphics for campaigns and social media channels

·       Assist with communications and project-related research

·       Assist in maintaining up-to-date content on the website

·       Take the lead on one or more outreach projects

·       Stay up to date on relevant news and share daily news clips with the Food Project team

Qualifications:

·       Strong writing skills and an interest in writing for advocacy

  • Strong organizational skills and ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously
  • Ability to ask questions and seek out advice, as well as take the initiative to move projects forward when possible
  • Team-oriented with the ability to work well independently
