Dear Professor John A. Commito,

My name is Katie Drumm and I am the Summer Staffing Director for the Fund for the Public Interest, a national non-profit that runs campaigns on environmental and social justice issues for groups like Environment America, U.S. PIRG and the Human Rights Campaign. Right now we’re hiring students for summer jobs on our campaigns. We are holding information sessions and interviews at Gettysburg on 2/25 and 2/26. I was hoping you could help spread the word to students on your list, I imagine some of them will be interested. There is a blurb below with all of the information, can you please send it out?

We would also love to come make a special announcement in your class(es). Please respond back as to which class or classes would be best.

Thanks for your consideration!

Katie Drumm

Impact issues that matter this summer with the Fund!

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

Last summer our staff helped stop toxic gas drilling, worked to end subsidies for junk food, and built support for equal rights for all Americans- all while building valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.

As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.

We will be holding information sessions and interviews at Gettysburg on Tuesday, 2/25 in room 230 in the Union and Wednesday, 2/26 in room 126 in the Union at 10 am, 2 pm, 4pm and 6 pm both days.

To apply, please visit or call 1-800-75-EARTH (753-2784).
