**Summer Job Opportunities fighting for LGBTQ equality**

**Summer Job Opportunities fighting for
LGBTQ equality**

In 28 states, people still risk being fired or losing their homes just
for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans. If you believe, as I do,
that all LGBTQ Americans deserve a fair chance to earn a living and provide for their families, you may be a good fit for a full-time position with our organization this summer. I represent the Fund for Equality, and we will be holding information sessions about our open positions, as well as holding interviews with qualified candidates. We’re looking for smart, hard-working students who work well in a team and are eager to make real change this summer.

The Fund for Equality partners with leading nonprofit groups from around the country, providing the kind of people power it takes to build organizations for the long-term, win hard-fought campaigns, and make real change on some of the most important issues of our day. And we’re hiring!
Specifically, we're hiring campaign staff and leaders to be a part of our grassroots campaign offices across the country this summer -- working on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign. We’re currently working to build support to pass the Equality Act, which would prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ people in key areas like employment, housing, and education, providing full federal equality under the law.Change takes people power. The Fund’s job is to build that power for great groups working on important issues.
We all want to make a difference. But wanting change, or hoping for it, or even passionately arguing for it isn’t enough. That’s where you come in. The president or the governor usually gets the headline when change does happen. But the real story takes place behind the scenes, with hundreds or thousands or even millions of people making their voices heard through petitions, emails, small donations, and meetings.That’s people power, and that's what you deliver with the Fund. You are a part of a  team that recruits supporters, raises money and mobilizes thousands of people to take action -- for equality, for our democracy, and more.
We are looking for motivated students who want to lead the way in
working for the change our country needs.If you are interested in applying, visit our website at to fill out an application, or contact me directly at 312-559-4700 or
