FEF PAC Summer Internship Program

The Freethought Equality Fund is seeking a full or part time intern to assist with campaign activities for the upcoming 2016 General Election. Interns will develop a better understanding of how a progressive, nonprofit organization operates, while gaining exposure to campaign-style politics on a national level.

Interns will be paid a monthly stipend with the commitment to work at least 20 hours per week and must be available for at least 10 weeks (with preference to those who can commit to longer). Part time commitment will earn $800/month, while full time interns can receive a $1,600/month stipend.

Our mission at the Freethought Equality Fund is to provide Americans the opportunity to make their voice heard in the political process by supporting candidates who identify as humanist, atheist, agnostic, and who share our goals of protecting the separation of church and state and defending the civil liberties of secular Americans.
