PIRG Jobs

I’m Lucas Gutterman, an organizing director with PIRG Campus Action. I’m writing to let you know I’ll be on campus 2/28 and 3/1 to talk to graduating seniors about our full-time job opportunities.

PIRG Campus Action, the national federation of student-run nonprofits which includes WashPIRG, is the nation’s premier student action group. We work to organize, amplify and empower students as we tackle the issues that shape our future.

Over the years, PIRG Campus Action organizers have worked with students to help them win major victories, from passing a landmark global warming bill in Massachusetts, to students across the country registering more than 40,000 of their classmates to vote in the last election, to helping convince McDonald’s, Subway and KFC to stop serving meats raised on antibiotics. This year I’m working with students on campaigns to get their campuses to 100% renewable energy, completing hundreds of hours of community service, and working to pass a statewide law to empower small donors.

We are looking for graduating seniors who are interested in nonprofit jobs.

​PIRG Campus Action, the national federation of student-run nonprofits which includes WashPIRG, is the nation’s premier student action group. We work to organize, amplify and empower students as we tackle the issues that shape our future.

We need to save the planet, defend the public interest, and protect consumers. To achieve that, we need to imagine what society should look like in the future, and we overcome opposition by special interests in the present to get there. The future belongs to young people. It’s up to them to dream it up, and their idealism, energy, and vision will build the people power to make it a reality. Click here to apply today.

We know college students have the power to make a difference. From the Freedom Riders of the ‘60s to the voter registration drives of today, from the anti-apartheid movement of the ‘80s to the drive for fossil fuel divestment now—students are always pushing our communities, our country and our world forward.

This term, student at UW are working to get their campus to commit to 100% renewable energy by 2050. There’s going to be an amazing rally with three on-campus speakers on March 1st at 11:30 am in Red Square. You can RSVP on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/700775276977562/

This program combines our 3-week intensive and our 6-week summer session to offer a full summer in Alaska. From nearshore aquatic habitat monitoring to the impacts of transboundary mining, the Semester Equivalent surveys the complex issues facing North America’s largest temperate rainforest. Lengthy immersion in the backcountry and rural communities from Sea Otter Sound to the Stikine River provides students the opportunity to dig deeper on topics that fit their major or course of study and work closely with faculty and guest lecturers.

Topics covered will include–but aren’t limited to!–Alaska Native studies, climate change, collaborative governance, community development, fisheries, forestry, glaciology, paleontology, public lands management, restoration ecology, sustainable aquaculture, international law and politics, and wildlife conservation.

Students enrolled in the Semester Equivalent will stack the 3-week intensive and the 6-week summer session to build your 10-week program. During the week between, you may travel independently or enjoy downtime in Wrangell. Students enroll in up to 20 quarter units in community ecology, applied methods in field research and education, aquatic and terrestrial ecology, and politics of place.

Call for presentations for symposium on diverse communities and climate change

The interdisciplinary PhD in the Built Environment at UW is organizing a one-day symposium on April 26th around the theme of “Giving Voice, Being Seen: Community Agency and Design Action in a Time of Climate Change.” This symposium provides a forum for examining the intersections of climate change, urbanism, and environmental justice, and the ways in which diverse voices contribute to or are excluded from climate change conversations. The symposium invites presentations and projects that are addressing the ways in which diverse communities are being affected by climate change, and the role of diverse communities in design and climate change. If interested in participating, please submit a brief abstract by March 12th. Please see the attached PDF for more details.

New Diversity & Justice course, GRDSCH 640

The Graduate School is pleased to announce a new course for the Spring quarter entitled:

“Engaging with Microaggressions & Macroassaults- Equity in Praxis”.

We invite graduate students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines to participate in this interdisciplinary course which seeks to equip participants to critically engage with microaggressions and macroassaults- both the everyday insults and hostilities as well as the structural, large-scale policies and practices that perpetuate the oppression of marginalized populations. Inspired by Paulo Freire’s notion of praxis (the intersection of reflection and action), the course will work to empower participants to address, interrupt, and confront these forces in their personal and professional lives.

Please see the attached flyer for more information.

You may email Saejin Kwak Tanguay (gsdivra@uw.edu) with any questions.
