Clean water is a core environmental value. Our rivers, lakes and streams are central to nature and our engagement with it. We swim, fish, canoe, kayak or just wonder at the stunning scenery and wildlife around our waterways. They provide us with clean drinking water. We should be doing all we can to protect them.
Next year, the Clean Water Act turns 50. Yet we still have billions of gallons of sewage overflows, millions of lead pipes, and thousands of polluters dumping into our waterways. It’s time to dramatically upgrade our water infrastructure, and shift our economy from pollution to prevention, so that all our water is clean.
Environment America is seeking a Clean Water Advocate to advance solutions to the biggest pollution challenges facing our waterways. The Clean Water Advocate will work with our experienced team of lobbyists, researchers, organizers, and communications experts on advocacy campaigns for bold policy changes that win the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans.
If you want to work hard, challenge yourself, and make an actual impact on these issues, then this could be the right job for you.
The ideal candidate will be:
