Are you an ambitious organizer with activist experience looking to become a leader within the environmental movement? Do you want to train other activists and see your impact spread beyond yourself?
Clean Water Action is dedicated to building a movement of strong environmental leaders. For that purpose, we are hiring experienced activists that wish to grow within the organization and the movement.
In order to make real progress on issues that we care about we need to build a grassroots people-powered movement. People-power is built when hundreds and thousands of folks come together and make their voices heard. And that’s the kind of work we do at Clean Water Action and Field Managers play a critical role ensuring the success of Clean Water Action’s grassroots campaigns.
You will expand your community organizing skills while helping run a successful grassroots campaign, including, but not limited to, staff management, donor recruitment, sustainability initiatives, public policy, and strategic campaign planning.
Clean Water Action is a non-profit environmental political advocacy group founded during the passage of the landmark Clean Water Act in 1972.
Our mission is to protect our environment, health, and quality of life for all communities. Clean Water Action advocates for strong environmental policy on the local, state and national level through coalition building and grassroots pressure. For 50 years Clean Water Action has succeeded in winning some of the nation's most important environmental protections through grassroots organizing and political advocacy focused on holding elected officials accountable to the public.
Clean Water Action is dedicated to being an anti racist organization. We believe that those most affected by environmental degradation should be at the forefront of the environmental movement to contribute to broader goals of justice for the most vulnerable among us.
In order to be an effective ally and partner in environmental justice work, we are working to create a culture that allows all people to thrive and grow within the organization. We know that a diverse staff will result in more varied, effective ideas and approaches to our campaign objectives, strategy, and tactics.
