Communications Intern: Progress Texas Internships
Who We Are
Progress Texas is a non-profit media organization working to promote progressive values in our state. Since 2010, we have been leading the progressive voice in Texas media that stands up for the left, fights the right, and advocates for issues important to a growing number of people in our state. Each year our team generates hundreds of original articles, podcasts, posts, and videos for the progressive movement - and we'd like you to help us keep it going.
Texas is the fastest growing state in the nation, yet our political leaders do not always reflect the opinions and priorities of a growing number of people in our state.
Location: Austin, Dallas or remote office (in Texas). We are interested in qualified candidates from all major media markets in Texas.
That's where you come in.
