Lillian's List of NC - Fall 2014 Internships (4 positions available)
Lillian's List interns will build a variety of marketable skills in nonprofit fundraising and development, campaign finance and strategy, event planning and political communications. Interns will learn to use the NGP VAN campaign database system.
Undergraduate and graduate students with a demonstrated interest in women's issues or progressive politics preferred. This internship is unpaid and begins in early January continuing throughout the spring semester for 10-15 hours per week. We are willing to work with students and universities to coordinate academic credit. The position is onsite at our office in Raleigh. Interns must have access to a personal laptop.
I only say IF, because there is much work to be done in the next five months and we can't take anything for granted.
IF all our Featured Candidates for the NC Senate win, there will be more Democratic women serving in the NC Senate in January of 2015 than at any time in history.
There are currently 17 Democrats and 33 Republicans in the Senate. Only five (29%) of the Democratic Senators are women. IF all the following women win, we could more than double the number of Democratic women serving in the NC Senate and the percentage of Democratic women Senators could soar to 48%. This would also break the veto proof majority in the Senate. This would be astonishing!
