Overview

We’re looking for a campaign coordinator to oversee and coordinate various projects, including creating ad campaigns, action alerts, public letters, and other initiatives for PETA’s Animals in Entertainment Division. In this position, you can help Corky the orca at SeaWorld who was ripped from her mother and has been forced to live in concrete tanks for more than 50 years, elephants forced to perform in circuses, and dogs suffering in the dogsledding industry. Past victories include shutting down Ringling Bros. circus and getting it to return animal-free, convincing UniverSoul Circus to drop animal acts, pushing SeaWorld to stop breeding orcas, and succeeding in urging more than a dozen companies to stop sponsoring the Iditarod.
