CPC CENTER WOMEN’S RIGHTS LEGISLATIVE FELLOWSHIP

About the CPC Center

The Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPC Center) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that drives progressive ideas into the debate, supports greater cohesion across the progressive movement, generates the momentum we need to advance racial, economic, and gender justice, and builds progressive power across America.

Position Description

The CPC Center seeks a Women’s Rights Fellow for placement in a congressional office. This is a paid, six-month fellowship.

The CPC Center Legislative Fellows Program is an educational program that seeks to expand the pool of progressive talent prepared for legislative and advocacy work. Fellows are generally early to mid-career professionals with substantive experience in policy or advocacy but little or no previous work experience on the Hill.

This Fellowship will provide exposure to legislative processes and procedures, practical experience with how the House of Representatives works, and opportunities for interaction with constituents and issue stakeholders. To enrich the educational experience the Women’s Rights Fellow will join other CPC Center Legislative Fellows for a speaker series and networking events with other relevant organizations and individuals.
