Campaign Organizer, Impact, (Various Locations)

Our mission is to create the grassroots action, energy and power it takes to make an impact on important issues. We’re working on national campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, restore Clean Water Act protections to America’s streams, expand solar power across the country, end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, and counter the influence of Super PACs and billionaires over our elections.

Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and what issue we can make the biggest difference on in that state. For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a wavering senator in your state to vote the right way on crucial Clean Water Act protections. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that “going big on solar” is an opportunity to be a hero with the public.

The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year and $27,000 in the second year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Application Deadline: February 14, 2016
