Did you know that some of the CADEM staff got their start as young political interns?
Our Communications Director Shery Yang got her start as an intern for John Burton (our former Chair!)
Our Political Director Ben Seinfeld and Training Director Vincent Jones got their start as interns for the DNC.
We know that paid internship programs like ours are integral for building the bench of young California Democratic leaders. Every $15 donated means that we can keep one of our brightest interns employed and gaining valuable experience for just a bit longer!
Grassroots donations build our progressive bench. If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Paid internship programs are critical for the growth of our Party because people can’t pay rent or eat with just good intentions. Our Chair fought to raise the wages of nearly 1 million working Angelenos to $15 an hour and passed a progressive ballot measure to build more affordable housing and create good union jobs.
We value our staff and that means making sure each and every intern gets $15/hr for their labor. Can you help us build the bench of CA Democrats with a $15 donation today?
Paid interns build a more inclusive Party because they bring in student organizers and activists — everyone can build valuable connections and gain more professional experience.
