Environment California is hiring an experienced advocate to protect public health and the environment by shifting California’s electricity, cars, and buildings to be powered by 100% clean, renewable energy. Especially when the federal government is rolling back clean air laws, the need for leadership from California is more critical than ever. The top area of focus will be the transportation system, our state’s largest source of air pollution and global warming pollution. We need to accelerate the transition to 100% clean electric vehicles, including clean trucks, buses and cars. Mission and Background Environment California is a policy and action group with tens of thousands of supporters across the state. Our mission is to protect clean air, clean water and open space. Over the last 15 years we have won campaigns to dramatically expand the use of solar and other clean energy, and get cleaner cars and buses on the road. We’ve reduced plastic pollution flowing into the Pacific Ocean, we’ve stopped oil drilling and blocked efforts to expand fracking, and protected our parks and beaches and forests throughout the state. The Clean Energy Advocate is responsible for developing our strategy, approach and local message to win campaigns. The advocate will meet with local decision-makers and opinion leaders and represent our organization to allies and the media. Advocates also help to build and foster our membership, grassroots and online base of support. Finally, the advocate will help recruit staff and volunteers to join us, fundraise for our programs, and maintain good systems for tracking and building on our work. Representative Responsibilities Program:   Run the California clean energy program, participating in and overseeing policy development, research and messaging.

Campaign strategy:   Develop plans to win on our campaigns for trucks, buses and cars that run on 100% clean energy. Assess opportunities for building political support for our agenda through coalition-building, grassroots organizing, media coverage, endorsements and message development. Media outreach:   Serve as the public spokesperson for our environmental campaigns through media events, press releases, editorial board meetings and other outreach with a goal of building name recognition for the organization, educating the public about our issues, and building and demonstrating support for our positions. Coalition building:   Identify, reach out and work with partners who can help us win our campaigns. Fundraising:   Write grant proposals, build relationships with foundation staff and meet with donors, all to bring more resources to campaigns we're waging to protect our environment. Staff recruitment and development:   Recruit new staff and volunteers to increase our impact and build our power. Qualifications Candidates must have at least 3-5 years of relevant professional experience. Qualified candidates will have a demonstrated commitment to environmental and public interest issues and to citizen-based social change, as well as a track record of leadership.

The ideal candidate will have experience in state-level political advocacy and organizing, a proven ability to recruit, train and develop staff, the ability to raise money, and demonstrated success in building relationships with the full spectrum of environmental and political stakeholders.

As the state’s largest citizen-based environmental advocacy group, PennEnvironment seeks a dynamic leader and experienced organizer who is ready to lead a team of staff members who will move Pennsylvania to 100% renewable energy, clean up the Commonwealth’s largest polluters, protect the outdoor places we love, and stand up to the fracking industry. At PennEnvironment, we know that it takes an active and engaged citizenry to tackle the largest problems facing our environment, from climate change to pollution in our rivers and streams. As part of our leadership team, the PennEnvironment Organizing Director leads our statewide campaign staff as they build the grassroots and political power it will take to protect our air, water and open spaces. Specifically, the Organizing Director works with our staff to activate volunteers in key communities, coordinate our coalition work, and drive media coverage throughout the Commonwealth. The Organizing Director should be based in Philadelphia and will report directly to the Executive Director, David Masur. Background PennEnvironment’s mission is to advance the environmental values we share and win tangible results. We advocate for 100% renewable energy that doesn’t pollute and never runs out; clean rivers and streams, and water to drink; and clean air to breathe; preserved parks and wilderness from Ohiopyle to the Delaware Water Gap. During our forty-year history, PennEnvironment has stood up to powerful polluters and politicians in our fight for the environment. We were the first organization to call for a ban on fracking, and we lead the effort to mobilize over 100,000 Pennsylvanians to join our call to ban this dangerous practice. We’ve developed a network of hundreds of Climate Defender volunteers; organized town halls and rallies with critical decision makers from U.S. Senator Bob Casey to Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto to Philadelphia City Council Blondell Reynolds Brown. Our research on lead in drinking water received statewide media coverage, leading to a bipartisan group of legislators pledging to introduce legislation to implement some of our policy recommendations. And, we’ve helped launch innovative coalitions, such as the Philadelphia Healthy Schools Initiative, which includes Philadelphia’s teachers’ union, parent groups, public health experts and environmental officials working to tackle health problems in our school buildings. Key Responsibilities Staff Management and Training:   Oversee PennEnvironment’s staff across the state. Provide them with management and mentorship, skills training, and the support they need to build power and to win campaigns. You’ll help develop campaign activities, run trainings with your staff to develop and hone skills, and travel regularly to participate in campaign activities with your staff. Strategic Planning and Program Development:   Be part of the team that sets the organization’s agenda by identifying the biggest environmental threats and developing the strategy and tactics to solve these problems. You will also help develop campaign materials for key organizing tactics your staff are executing, including media materials, grassroots materials like petitions, and event materials. Communications and Organizational Visibility:   Work to increase coverage of environmental issues in the media and highlight PennEnvironment’s work on these issues through events, news releases and meetings. Power Building:   The big solutions needed to protect our environment, from moving to 100% renewables to banning fracking, will take years. The Organizing Director will help PennEnvironment build more political power through our campaigns. You will develop and execute best practices to improve our organizing; innovate new methods to engage the public; develop plans to expand our volunteer networks, coalition partners and reach; and evaluate the success of our programs to ensure we’re building more power over time. Fundraising:   Build lasting relationships in the foundation community, develop a network of donors through your work, and help execute small donor fundraising opportunities to build our membership. Qualifications Candidates must have at least 5 years of organizing experience, such as community organizing, campus organizing, campaign coordination, environmental advocacy, or coalition-building. Environmental advocacy and campaign coordination is strongly preferred. The ideal candidate is passionate about mobilizing the public support crucial for protecting our environment and movement building, and has a track record of accomplishment and an ability to work effectively with people from divergent political beliefs and experience. If you have less experience, you can apply for our Climate Defender Organizer or Fellowship at   www.PennEnvironment.org/jobs. Pay & Benefits Compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience. PennEnvironment offers a competitive benefits package.
