Environment America works to advance the environmental vision and values we share—clean energy, clean water, wilderness and wildlife protection, healthy food and sustainable agriculture, and more. With nearly 100 professional staff, more than 1 million members, activists and allies, and affiliates in 29 states, we organize the support it takes to stand up to polluting industries and ultimately sweep past them.
The clean energy associate will spearhead our national campaign to promote more energy efficient buildings – building support in Washington D.C. and key states to urge President Obama to move forward with bold policies. Specifically, the clean energy associate will engage cities and institutions in committing to energy efficiency goals, organize national report releases and tours of energy efficient buildings to generate media attention, and build relationships with Obama administration officials and key allies.
The clean energy associate will also help to build the organization by recruiting and overseeing interns, recruiting new staff, directing a summer citizen outreach office over two summers, and communicating with our members through email alerts, newsletters and mailings.
We’re seeking candidates ready to commit themselves to fighting for the environment. Being a fellow is not for everybody. It’s tough, demanding and the challenges never stop. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.
