Environment America seeks a skilled and savvy advocate to persuade key decision-makers to protect our rivers and our drinking water from pollution. Responsibilities include developing strategy and messaging, advocacy, coalition-building, generating media and visibility, fundraising, coordinating grassroots efforts, and helping us build our team.
Clean water is vital for our health, our ecology, and our quality of life. Yet from the lead in Flint to factory farms, we are seeing our water at risk. It’s time to hold polluters accountable and ensure that all our water is clean.
With a new administration and Congress, it will take strong public support and visibility – conveyed through persuasive advocacy - to make a compelling case for prioritizing bold action on clean water.
Environment America is a national grassroots advocacy organization tackling today’s toughest environmental problems. Working with our state affiliates and members across the country we use creative strategies, effective tactics, grit and determination to win positive change for our environment and our families’ health. That’s how we helped bring millions of people together with thousands of constituency groups, coalition partners and elected officials to restore Clean Water Act protections to thousands of waterways despite opposition from the oil and gas industry, corporate agribusiness, developers, and coal companies.
