Got a story on intersectional feminism, reproductive rights, or abortion access burning a hole in your chest? Come write for us! As a student blogger for URGE, you represent one of the many young voices we lift up everyday on campuses in Kansas, Ohio, California, Texas, Georgia, and Alabama. Our staff is always looking for diverse voices that can resonate with young people across the country, and we want to give six students that opportunity.

Writing for URGE means more than you may think. Firstly, YOU’LL GET PAID (that in and of itself should make you wanna apply, right?), and your pieces will be featured on our website and shared on all social media platforms on the national level. Your voice, your story could contribute to the national conversations on body positivity, abortion, sexual health, sex education, racial justice, and much, much more.

Our bloggers have been featured in a variety of online publications, as a part of their role as URGE student journalists. Huffington Post, RH Reality Check, and Feministing have all featured articles by our students; the next piece that shakes up the movement could be yours!

Apply to join URGE’s journalist team, and you’ll be one of six featured bloggers for an entire school year. You’ll have a national platform, and the opportunity to come to Washington, DC (travel and rooms are on us!) to participate in our 2016 National Conference, meet your fellow writers, and mingle with URGE students from all over.

To Apply: By April 8, send completed application and 2 writing samples via e-mail to klonden@urge.org. Top candidates will be asked to do short telephone interviews April 11-26. Student Journalists will be selected by May 4. You can find the application here.

URGE is an equal opportunity employer. People of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people and those with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
