Volunteers for Fatima – Fatima Baryab (D) campaign for city council, seeking interns!

Message from Fatima Baryab:

My name is Fatima Baryab and I took on the endeavor of running for New York City Council at the age of 22. I want like-minded youth to get involved in my campaign because now it’s our time to shine.

We only stand strong when we are united. Therefore, as a fellow New Yorker, I am asking for your help. I am looking for passionate New Yorkers who want to reclaim our city. New Yorkers who wish to take control of our history. New Yorkers who wish to be the flicker of hope in the darkness that surrounds us today.

I am willing to provide a platform to initiate this change. As Interns/volunteers participants will be compensated with recommendations, community service credits, and a stipend to cover food and travel expenses. Additionally, this is an ideal opportunity for students wishing to gain experience in the fields of political science and public affairs. Students will be provided a safe and nurturing environment that will facilitate them in their career search.

I am writing to you to help spread the word of this opportunity to your students at Baruch College.

Please find the flyer and application attached to this email. Please contact my team at team@fatima4ny.com with any questions.
