ABOUT FOR THE PEOPLE
For the People is a 501(c)(4) political media and action organization that breaks down politics and policy affecting people of color, and young folks, to help a new generation of leaders make an actual difference and focus on issues we care about by answering three questions— “What do I need to know?,” “How does this affect me?,” and “What can I do about it?”— for each piece of politics or policy that we discuss, and by holding public forums, town halls, debates and other in person events later this year.
For the People is seeking reporters -- you’ll work to cover stories that make up the conversation on social media and in newsrooms around the country using your own unique perspective, while locating your own stories to report on.
People of color, LGBTQ+, minority & young people are especially encouraged to apply. Basic knowledge of social media & Dem/progressive policy required. Strong networking skills & social media presence encouraged, but absolutely not required.
To apply, please email with a cover letter, writing sample & resume.
