Work with our national program team, local organizers and other key allies across the country to build momentum, expand support and win policies to go fossil fuel free, promote carbon-free transportation, reduce power plant pollution and more.
Environment America is seeking an experienced program/campaign director to lead our Global Warming Solutions Team. This person will work with our national program team, local organizers and other key allies across the country to build momentum, expand support and win policies to go fossil fuel free, promote carbon-free transportation, reduce power plant pollution and more. You will be the public face of Environment America’s climate campaign and interact directly with decision-makers, the media, coalition partners and funders.
Environment America is a national network of 29 state environmental groups with one mission — to change our country and our world to be a greener, healthier place. With more than 2 million members and supporters spread across all 50 states, our staff have been working for nearly four decades to promote national, state and local policies that put the earth first. For example, we’ve won policies that have resulted in more solar and wind power in 25 states, passage of the 2020 Great America Outdoors Act, America’s most sweeping conservation law in decades, and better protections for our rivers, streams, lakes and drinking water. We run campaigns that not only raise awareness but win results on the national stage, in states and cities, on the ballot and in the courtroom.
In every campaign we run, we put the earth first. Nothing else matters if we don’t have a healthy planet. Restoring and protecting the environment is our only mission. We also know that lasting progress for the planet comes one challenging step at a time. We have a bold vision of a greener world. But we know that making a difference often requires compromise. No single law can completely solve a problem, but each victory sets the stage for more action and progress. We also know that, to make progress sustainable, we need to reach out to everybody, not just the people who already agree with us. We recruit supporters from every state we can — whether it’s considered “red,” “blue” or “purple.” We work with any elected official — Democrat or Republican — who wants to protect our environment. And we do whatever we think will turn public opinion and political momentum toward a greener, healthier world.
