LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU
You believe that good public policy leads to better lives. You know that an engaged an informed citizenry was as important in the 1700’s as it is today. And you understand that the freedom movement needs innovative programming to appeal to more than just the wonks.
Reclaim New York is looking for someone like you. We seek an Affordability Policy Intern that is interested in learning about the core processes of a non-profit policy effort. The internship requires a minimum of 20 hours per week, at Reclaim headquarters. Because of a dumb New York law that restricts freedom – you must be a degree-seeking student for this position.
You should have ridiculously strong organization abilities. You understand the plight of New Yorkers crushed by taxes and pushed out of the state by our high cost of living. You should be a rock star at finding information online so quickly that our heads will spin. You must be creative.
