Fellow, Environment America (Boston, MA and Washington D.C.)

About the Job:

You know what needs to be done. America needs to move to 100% renewable energy, keep fossil fuels in the ground, ban pesticides that kill off bees and other pollinators, expand protections for our parks and wildlife, and more.

How can you win real results right now while getting us on track toward that green future? Consider being an Environment America fellow.

You might organize a town hall meeting on solar power. You might release a hard-hitting report on power plant pollution. You might build a coalition around clean water or fracking. You will build the organizational power- the funds, the membership, the activist base- that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul.

As an Environment American fellow, you think boldly but work hard- to create more solar and wind power, reduce global warming pollution, keep our parks permanently protected and in public hands, and protect our water from fracking and factory farms.

What You’ll Do: 

Research and write reports: Catalogue and analyze sources of carbon pollution in the United States. Detail the success of the Clean Water Act in our reports. Help us influence public debate and earn media attention for our cause.

Lobby elected officials: Discuss strategy with a champion in Congress. Make a convincing case to a legislator who is undecided on a particular vote. Work the “inside game” to complement our outside field operation, where most of our power is derived.

Build powerful coalitions: Reach out to small businesses, farmers, public health officials, unions and others to demonstrate broad-based support for our policy goals.

Generate traditional media and social media attention: Organize news conferences and write opinion pieces. Maintain presence on Facebook and Twitter for your campaigns. Work to shine a spotlight on our issues.

Run citizen outreach campaigns: Direct citizen outreach offices. Hire and manage a staff of 20 canvassers, raise money, build our  membership and help win one of our key campaigns.

Identify and cultivate donors: Reach out to foundations and major donors and ask them to fund our work to fight global warming, ban fracking and protect our most spectacular natural areas.

Pay and Benefits:

The target annual compensation for this positions is $26,000 in the first year. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
