Develop and advocate for policies to build a greener, healthier world
The damage we’re doing to the planet is just heartbreaking: climate change, plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But the solutions are all around us, practically begging us to adopt them: solar and wind power, electric cars and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, reusing and repairing stuff instead of throwing it away, and on and on. Environment America is seeking a Federal Legislative Director to promote our policy agenda and lead our D.C.-based advocacy team.
The Legislative Director will work with our staff of researchers, campaign staff and communications experts to develop and implement advocacy campaigns at the federal level. The legislative agenda will balance proactive policies with a robust defense of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act and other important environmental protections that have come under attack in Washington, D.C.
We do what it takes to turn public opinion and political momentum toward a greener, healthier world. If you want to work hard, challenge yourself, and make an actual impact on the critical environmental issues of our time, then consider a career with Environment America.

Experience as a legislative advocate within Congress, the state legislature or another organization is a plus but not required.
