Career Opportunities for Graduating Seniors

In the last seven years, we’ve seen a lot of big changes in this country. After helping elect Barack Obama, progressive leaders and activists were able to implement the largest change in healthcare availability in over 100 years. We’ve seen marriage equality go from 6 states to the entire nation. We’ve seen Hawaii become the first state to ban plastic grocery bags, and three states ban fracking.

That’s a great start, but there’s a lot of work left to do.

It’s still legal in 29 states to fire someone from their job just because of their sexual orientation. Women’s reproductive healthcare is under constant attack, threatening access to basic healthcare services for millions of American women. The effects of global climate change are becoming more pronounced and severe, and time to do anything about it is running out.

Grassroots Campaigns is a national, progressive political consulting firm specializing in running face-to-face field campaigns. Over the next year, our activists will reach millions of people all across the country to talk about the issues and call those people to action, inspiring millions to act by giving donations, time, and energy to top organizations working on the issue. We’re currently partnering with groups like the ACLU, The Nature Conservancy, Doctors Without Borders, and many others. In 2016, we’ll also be working in key states across the country to elect candidates who will advance progressive issues.
