Intern positions for UW students on a statewide Initiative 594 campaign

The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility needs interns for their campaign to pass the statewide Initiative 594 for universal background checks on gun sales this November!

An internship on the WAGR campaign will give you a broad range of experience in what makes a state-wide campaign work - participating in every department with a focus on field including:

• Support the field program as needed through data management, volunteer recruitment, and voter contact at events

• Support the general campaign effort by participating in campaign meetings and events, drafting communications materials, and doing research

• 10-20 hours a week, at least one weekday evening

• Flexible schedule to split between week days and weekends as needed

Your day-to-day work will include everything from representing the campaign at community meetings, recruiting volunteers to call voters, and assisting research efforts as well as administrative responsibilities. Interns will support the efforts of our staff in all areas which will include evening and weekend event duties. 

Internships are unpaid, may have opportunities later, and are open to all ages. For students, this experience can typically qualify for school credit.
