The Public Interest Network's Editorial & Creative Team

We’re the Public Interest Network’s in-house editorial and creative team.

The Public Interest Network operates and supports more than a dozen organizations – including PIRG, Environment America and Green Corps – committed to a shared vision of a better world and a strategic approach to change.

The network focuses on the problems that arise from America’s single-minded pursuit of endless economic growth: We’re still burning fossil fuels even though it’s changing the climate. We keep giving antibiotics to healthy livestock, even though it leads to “superbugs” that are antibiotic-resistant. We use plastic products for a few minutes only to throw them away so they pollute the oceans for centuries. 

We’re building a following for change

Our team plays a vital role in addressing those problems. Our mission is to build a larger and more deeply engaged following for our network. We hone the messaging for many of the network’s projects, programs and campaigns. We partner with the network’s advocates, organizers and researchers to craft stories that will resonate with everyone, regardless of political ideology. We turn those stories into the materials and online content that will motivate people to take action, support our work, and join our movement. 

Whether we are writing an email, creating a newsletter, producing a video or crafting web content, we take the same data-driven, results-oriented, maximum bang-for-the-buck approach that wins positive changes now, and help build a platform for more change in the future.
