LCV believes our earth is worth fighting for because everyone has a right to clean air, water, and a safe, healthy community. To ensure those rights are protected, we help people use their power to shape policy, hold politicians and polluters accountable, and influence elections. At the same time LCV believes that in order to achieve our climate goals, we need a healthy democracy to allow all people to have their voice heard on the issues that matter most.
For more than 50 years, LCV has grown into a potent political force for protecting our planet and our democracy. We have built a powerful national movement with over 30+ state affiliates across the country.
LCV is seeking a State Democracy Policy Intern who will support the State Democracy Policy Director in working with LCV and our 30+ state affiliates, collectively referred to as the Conservation Voters Movement (CVM), to support our network-wide democracy and voting rights program that advances bold policies at the state level. They will provide valuable support to state affiliates and the LCV democracy team, offering timely assistance to states, legislation tracking, and research for policy papers on priority issues. The State Democracy Policy Intern will also play a supporting role in collecting resources, identifying state legislative victories, and facilitating coalition spaces.
The State Democracy Policy Intern will join a Summer 2024 internship cohort that will have access to development opportunities including a Capstone project, informational interviews with staff, and organization-wide training and discussions. Summer interns participate in brown bag lunches with various members of LCV’s senior management team, including President Gene Karpinski.
