Large industrial farms misuse our life-saving antibiotics. Work to fix this problem by turning your online skills into political action.
U.S. PIRG is hiring a Digital Campaigner to work on one very big problem: stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
Life-saving antibiotics are too important to squander, but that’s exactly what is happening due to the overuse of these drugs. Factory farms routinely administer antibiotics to livestock even when the animals are not sick, creating a breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, aka superbugs. It’s the crutch of the industrial farming system, and it’s putting our health at risk.
In joining our team, you will urge more restaurant chains to follow the lead of Chipotle, Subway, and others in no longer serving meat raised on antibiotics. You’ll push for policy changes at the state and federal levels.
We are hiring a Digital Campaigner with sharp writing skills, savvy strategic ability and a talent for using social media.
In today’s world, no advocacy effort is complete without a significant online presence. People today turn to the web for their information, to learn about issues and to take action. Your efforts as an online campaigner will be key to any successful campaign.
With U.S. PIRG, you’ll get great experience, be part of a team, and change the world.
