Impact is a campaign team that works in states where we can win positive change for our environment, our democracy and our future. Our mission is to create timely, focused citizen action, energy and power – the kind it takes to make an impact on important issues – through campaigns run in targeted cities and states. We partner with Environment America, the Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs) and Fair Share – well-established groups with solid track records on the issues. We currently employ campaign organizers in 25 states, working on national campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, restore Clean Water Act protections to America’s streams, expand solar power in 12 states from Georgia to Maryland to Texas, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
We’re expanding our campaign organizer team, so we’re hiring graduating seniors and recent college graduates for two-year commitments beginning in the fall of 2015. So far, Impact’s Class of 2017 is nearly full. We’ve hired more than 35 organizers in nearly 25 states to protect clean water, stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, move forward with solar energy and work on other critical issues. Because of the success of the program, we are expanding Impact next year to make an even bigger difference on some of the most critical issues our country faces.
