Review for Free Press, Florence, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently spent a summer volunteering at Free Press as part of their Media Action Bootcamp. It was through this program that I was able to see (and contribute to) Free Press' efforts on a day to day basis.

As a masters student in Public Policy, I was initially skeptical of the role which non profits can have in changing public policy, but the dedicated and knowledgeable staff at FP worked tirelessly in their efforts to advance their policy goals and educate the public about the issues which are key to FP's mission.

Their strategy of inside/outside organizing really was effective (something which I initially doubted would be the case) and their entire staff was a pleasure to work with during my time there. I will certainly be supportive of FP going forward.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the temperature of their conference room, it was like an ice box in there!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Thanks for reviewing, Chris! We're so lucky to have you as part of the media reform movement. Also, so that you know, our new office manager is actively working on the conference room temperature!
