United for a Fair Economy is a national non-profit organization that spotlights growing economic inequality and inspires action to narrow the growing economic divide.
Estate Tax Media Assistant
As part of its economic fairness work, United for a Fair Economy is campaigning to prevent the repeal of the federal Estate Tax, the most progressive tax in the US. The Estate Tax is owed only on estates worth more than $1.5 million, so 99% of Americans pay no estate tax. Repealing the Estate Tax would cost almost $1 trillion over the next 20 years, resulting in cuts to important programs such as education, and shifting the tax burden to low- and middle-income taxpayers. The intern will help with media efforts to research, educate and inform the public about the values of preserving and reforming the Estate Tax.
Media Assistant/Racial Wealth Divide Assistant
This intern would work with the Communications Director to help win media coverage for United for a Fair Economy. Also, UFE plans to publish a book on the roots of the racial wealth divide in government actions. The intern would gather information for this book.
This intern would work with the Research Director on all aspects of UFE research, including researching CEO pay trends, developing materials for UFE workshops on state tax policy and other topics, updating website information on the estate tax and other topics, and answering economics questions from UFE members and trainers. Experience in research on economic topics required.
UFE is an equal opportunity employer, committed to a multiracial, multicultural staff.
