Campaign Organizing Internship Position (Minneapolis)

My name is Jasmine Ruddy and I'm working in Minneapolis with a non-profit organization called Corporate Accountability International. This spring, we're continuing our Value [the] Meal campaign to target McDonald's negative influence on public health and targeted marketing in public schools. Coming out of the recent announcement from Abbott Northwestern Hospital to end its contract with McDonald's, we're working with parents and teachers in the community to build on that progress by ending fundraising partnerships between McDonald's and public schools in Minneapolis.

We have a few internship positions open for the spring to help us with this campaign. Would you be willing to send the internship information (below) to your class listervs? Our internship application deadline is this Sunday, January 17th.

Thanks so much, and I look forward to hearing from you!
