Hiring Passionate Activists to Defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

U.S. PIRG is a consumer group that stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our financial security, or our right to fully participate in our democratic society.

Right now U.S. PIRG is fighting to defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from legislation that would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the CFPB as we know it.

The CFPB is the first federal agency devoted to protecting consumers in the financial marketplace. You may recall that in in 2016 the CFPB held Wells Fargo accountable for unfair treatment of its customers. The enforcement action the CFPB took against Wells Fargo was one of many times the CFPB has required banks and other financial companies to pay fines and compensate customers for wrongdoing.

In order to mobilize widespread support to protect the CFPB, U.S. PIRG is hiring people who are passionate about advocating for our citizen’s best interests.

U.S. PIRG fellows work hard to advocate for the public interest — whether it’s by developing campaigns, building coalitions, mobilizing and organizing the public, showcasing our work online and in the media, or making our case directly to decision makers.

Work with Environment America Think bold? Work hard? We’re hiring.

Environment America is hiring summer field organizers to help us fight global warming!

2016 was the hottest year ever recorded. And in 2015, 72 U.S. cities had more than 100 days with dangerous air. At a time when we need to be moving forward to protect our health and climate, President Trump and the Congress are moving backward – dismantling dozens of important environmental protections. This summer, Environment America will be building public support in politically critical states across the country to defend against attacks to our air and climate. We’ll organize to guard against rollbacks to the Clean Air Act, clean car standards, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Job Description
That’s where you come in. Environment America’s summer field organizers will work to generate media attention, mobilize hundreds of citizens across their states, and build diverse coalitions of organizations and opinion leaders to push for action. Our summer field organizers will also spend two weeks working with our citizen outreach offices to recruit new members and raise money through canvassing to support the campaign.

This position begins in May and ends in August. Our summer field organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with Environment America at the end of the campaign.

Columbus, OH
Washington, DC or Richmond, VA

There will be a week-long training in Washington D.C. near the beginning of the campaign.

Compensation and Benefits
Target annual compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate has. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package.

Summer Field Organizing is an incredible opportunity for both experienced and brand new organizers who want to gain skills in environmental activism and organizing. We offer an excellent training program and work to place our organizers with organizations working for change after the summer campaign.

We’re seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and fighting for the environment. We look for smarts, academic excellence, and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups.

European Politics and Society: Vaclav Havel Joint Master Programme

In September 2017, Institute of International Studies at Charles University in Prague will start a new Joint Master Programme – European Politics and Society: Vaclav Havel Joint Master Programme (EPS) open for EU and non-EU students interested in history, political science and international relations.

The European Politics and Society (EPS) is a multidisciplinary two-year Joint Master Degree Programme linking the fields of European politics, contemporary history and culture, economy, international relations and policymaking. The first semester of the EPS Programme is based on Master level introductory courses (in Prague), the second semester focuses on EU related courses (Krakow, Leiden). In the third and fourth semesters, the programme offers four different study tracks reflecting the diverse expertise of the Consortium members (Prague, Krakow, Barcelona, and Leiden). Each track combines various elective courses, research methods training, an internship and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation supervised by key staff from each Partner University.

The EPS Programme gives its students the possibility to acquire high-profile pluridisciplinary knowledge and skills. The first goal of the EPS Programme is to prepare a new generation of managers, policymakers and research leaders. The excellence of the programme is based on a central focus on the societal, political, economic and cultural processes that have formed contemporary Europe and its role in the international environment, the programme also fosters exchange among diverse European and non-European cultures, and offers a unique learning experience to both EU and non-EU students. The EPS Programme thus contributes to build a real trans-European community of students, experts and academia that deal with current European challenges.

You can find more details in a leaflet annexed or at the web page of the programme: http://eps.fsv.cuni.cz/

Deadline for applications is 31 May 2017.
