Transit Justice Internship

Mission of our organization:

MN350 is building a climate movement by inspiring Minnesotans to take collective action grounded in urgency, justice, and possibility. MN350 plays a role in the global movement for climate justice by engaging people in strategic campaigns to keep fossil fuels in the ground and move Minnesota to a just transition to renewable energy.

Transit Justice internship – Fall 2021

The Clean Transportation team has just kicked off a new campaign dedicated to transit justice. We are building power by canvassing everyday transit riders, and bringing our demands to the Metropolitan Council to improve overall transit experience. We hope to establish guaranteed transit funding, reduce police presence on transit, and make transit more accessible to all. Interns will have the opportunity to lead transit canvasses, connect with and educate legislators on the importance of transit, and engage volunteers around further transit action items as our capacity increases.

Skills and experience

We work with people from diverse backgrounds. Interns would benefit from prior canvassing experience, strong interpersonal, writing, and communication skills. Bi-lingual in Spanish and/or Somali is a plus but not required.

How to Apply

This internship is unpaid. Students can frequently arrange to receive academic credit for our internships if allowed by their institution. To apply, please send your resume and cover letter to Adrianna Jereb at Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
