Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund will be hiring a full-time advocate/organizer in our Boston office to support the organizations’ Massachusetts campaigns to combat climate change, promote environmental justice and ensure all communities have access to affordable clean energy.
Clean Water Action is a national, grassroots environmental organization that works to protect the environment and safeguard public health, promote passage of strong environmental laws, and help communities address local environmental problems affecting them. Clean Water Fund is a national research and education organization which promotes justice and the public interest on issues related to water, waste, clean energy and toxics. Top issue priorities include: preventing harm to our health from toxic chemicals, promoting energy efficiency and clean energy, advocating for Zero Waste policies, and holding our policymakers accountable. Ensuring that those most affected by environmental degradation have a voice at the table, and that solutions to environmental problems contribute to broader goals of justice for all, are central goals in all campaigns.
Energy is essential to our daily lives and has a dramatic impact on our swiftly changing climate, but most people don’t know where their energy comes from or that energy policy is largely determined at a state level. Educating members of the public on our outdated, centralized, polluting energy system and engaging residents in transforming the grid into a more green, distributed, and equitable network of power is vital to our future. The Clean Energy Advocate will press for statewide reforms by working in broad coalition and organizing Clean Water members to fight for clean energy and climate justice in Massachusetts.
Skills required for this position include:
A minimum of two years experience with issue campaigns is a must. Background in energy and climate issues is helpful. Familiarity with campaign organizing in Massachusetts, organizing in a variety of racial and socio-economic communities, and/or communications is highly desired.
