Maryland District 20 Race Internships

Lorig Charkoudian for D20 Seeking Summer Interns

Lorig Charkoudian is a progressive Democrat from Takoma Park and candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates representing District 20, which includes portions of Downtown Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and White Oak.  As our campaign kicks off at the beginning of June, we're seeking motivated high school and college students with an interest in politics and passion for Democratic policies to intern during the summer.  Applicants should be available to commit to 15-30 hours per week between June - August/September.  Although not necessary, weekend availability and access to a vehicle are both helpful.

This unpaid internship will provide exposure to the essential components of a grassroots campaign:  direct voter contact, visibility, fundraising, political events, and communications/press.  The internship will have a particular emphasis on direct voter contact such as canvassing neighborhoods in District 20 to connect with and persuade registered Democratic voters.  This will be a unique experience among political internships because it will provide a broad introduction to political campaigns and chance to play a larger role than a statewide campaign.  We have a competitive 2018 Democratic primary in District 20 and we need to hit the ground running! 

To apply, please send your resume and a brief paragraph discussing your interests in politics/campaigns in the body of your email to friendsoflorig@gmail.com.  Also feel free to check out our website at http://lorigD20.com.  Please address your email to Tim Wolff, Campaign Manager.  We provide an inclusive work environment and welcome applicants from all backgrounds and walks of life.
