350 Vermont is seeking an intern to help with the Keep Vermont Tar Sands Free campaign. This campaign, which is in solidarity with the First Nations resistance in Canada, aims to raise public awareness of and mobilize opposition to industry plans to use the 60 year old Portland Montreal Pipeline (PMPL) for transporting tar sands products through New England. The Campaign Intern will help with the Town Resolutions campaign. Our goal is to pass resolutions on town meeting day in every town in the Northeast Kingdom. Intern would support outreach through out the Kingdom, public education forums, film screenings, tabling at local events, press and social media, occasionally door-to-door canvassing and preparation of presentations for Town Meeting day.
Desired skills/attributes include good interpersonal style, ability to assimilate campaign information, press outreach and social media generation, flyer/brochure creation, willingness to interact with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, an eagerness to learn new skills, ability to work independently and a deep personal commitment to climate activism. Access to a car would be very helpful (mileage reimbursed) since we will be working extensively in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. This work involves a flexible schedule and will most likely change from week to week. We would like to begin orientation early Dec. with flexibility based on semester schedule.
Please send resume and brief letter of interest to Jade Walker: Jade@350VT.org by Nov. 29th.
