Topics for Academic/Research Input: We are looking for Long Island specific economic information for our Worker Cooperatives work. Specifically looking for small business numbers related to age of ownership. We would like the info made into infographics and other visually pleasing methods for presentations, web, and press.
Student Internships: Yes. LIPC is always looking for interns to assist on a variety of campaigns. An intern at LIPC can expect to be fully engaged in our campaigns while learning how to message to an audience, outreach to communities, communicate via social media, plan events, and help win real change on Long Island.
