Do you write? Want to get paid to do it?
Apply to be our Political Writing Fellow! It’s a paid internship to write 4 posts & 1 newsletter.
Compensation: paid monthly stipend (per experience), Democratic National Convention access
The Asian American Action Fund works to increase Asian American political participation at all levels, especially Congressional. We do so by mentoring candidates, advising campaigns, aiding logistics (get out the votes, writing assistance), media (blog, social media, newsletter), endorsing candidates, sponsoring events, and making donations. We seek a writing fellow to write our newsletter, press releases, and social media posts.
What We’ll Give You:
- nationally renowned AAPI PAC to add to your resume
- access to prominent AAPIs politicians per your role & interests
- opportunity to cover the 2016 DNC (Democratic National Convention) in Philadelphia where the party will select their nominee for POTUS; access but room/board not paid though we can book together
You’ll write monthly:
- 8 social media posts to reinforce our mission to increase AAPI political participation in the US

- 1-2 press releases, often in short order since they’ll be about the news of the day
We pay by mailing a check by the 15th of the month following the calendar month in which the requirements are completed.
