Are you ready to help build the grassroots power it takes to stand up to special interests and give the public a voice? For years, U.S. PIRG Jobs & Opportunities has won real victories to protect our democracy, our health and safety, and our financial wellbeing. Yet we still face enormous challenges, from a flood of big money in our democracy, to hidden genetically modified ingredients in the food we eat. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Fund for the Public Interest, to help us bring together thousands of like-minded students and activists to work on campaigns to win real progress for the public. 

Democracy Campaign Director

Experienced

America’s democracy is in trouble. Elections and policy decisions should be based on competition and debate in which the merits of one’s ideas and abilities, not the size of one’s wallet, dictate the size of one’s influence. Today, the opposite is true. Ordinary people have less and less influence, public decisions are skewed towards the interests of those with the most money to spend, and public confidence in government is crumbling. The public has indicated time and time again they want to rein in big money in politics, but four decades of misguided court decisions have stripped the public’s right to impose even the most common sense reforms.

 

In this challenging environment, democracy activists must be smarter than ever, organizing the public around shorter term solutions that give ordinary people more leverage in the political process, while building a popular movement towards fundamental structural reform.
