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 policy and action group with more than two million members and supporters spread across all 50 states. We promote national, state and local policies that put the environment first. For example, we’ve won policies that have resulted in more solar and wind power in 22 states, cleaner cars and power plants nationwide, and better protections for our rivers, streams, lakes and drinking water.
Candidates must have at least 4 years of relevant professional experience. Qualified candidates will have a demonstrated commitment to environmental issues and to citizen-based social change as well as a track record of leadership. We're looking for goal-driven and results-oriented individuals who have excellent verbal, writing and analytical skills, the ability to speak persuasively in a charged atmosphere, and enthusiasm for the work.
