* Food Justice Certified – social media intern
This is a newly launched domestic fair trade label. We need a student with experience using twitter, facebook, and blogging who can bring up our social media profile. We have a basic marketing plan – your job would be to use your creativity to enhance this plan by getting our voice on popular food blogs, and posting frequently on facebook/twitter accounts. You would also be responsible for combing the websites of partners and food blogs to figure out what is being said about fair trade in the US, and helping develop public messaging for FJC website and blog responses.
* Food Justice Certified – research intern
Our social justice standards attempt to fill in where state laws fail at protecting the rights of workers and farmers. However – state laws are all different. We are looking for an experienced researcher with patience and an eye for detail to prepare a report for us on the labor laws in various states.
* Just Foods Program – media intern
Our program encompasses a wide variety of work – from GMO campaigns to fair trade labels. Our media intern will help us make our work more visible and accessible to the general public by creating a series of short, very simple films to post on our website and youtube. The media intern will also help develop content for the Just Foods webpage, and create blog posts.
