Join Our Team
Granite State Progress serves as a communications hub for progressive organizations in New Hampshire, working to challenge conservative propaganda in the media and make sure that progressive perspectives are heard. Our members mobilize around issues of immediate state and local concern to help amplify the message of coalition partners or step out in front to lead issue or rapid response campaigns when a progressive voice is needed. Core campaigns include economic justice, health care and reproductive freedom, gun violence prevention, voting rights and redistricting, and special interest influence exposes.
We currently have no job postings aside from internships.
Internships are based out of the Concord office; a limited number of hours may be completed at home. All candidates should be committed to progressive issues and ideals; creative and willing to push the envelope with hard-hitting communications activities; excellent at verbal and written communication; organized and detail-oriented; brave enough to suggest their own ideas for campaigns and tactics; able to take charge of independent projects but willing to come together as a team for big campaign pushes.
