Climate Defender Organizer with PennEnvironment @ Environment AmericaMon, 20 Nov 17 16:31:51 -0500http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7833http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7833Organization Name: Environment America
Location: Philadelphia, PA View Google Map
Job Post Date: 20 Nov 2017
Job Terms: Full Time
Salary: $26,000 annualy
Anticipated Start Date: 29 Dec 2017

Job Description

Now hiring Climate Defender Organizers!


The Campaign
2017 is on track to be the hottest year on record. 1 out of 4 days it was dangerous to breathe the air for more than 5 million Pennsylvanians due to smog and soot.

We know what we need to do: we need to stop burning fossil fuels and move to 100% renewable energy.

The good news is that PennEnvironment has been working to cut global warming pollution for decades and we’ve made progress from cleaner cars on the road to boosting solar and wind power. Unfortunately, crucial victories have come under attack from the Trump administration.

We won’t let that hold us back in Pennsylvania or across the country. PennEnvironment is doubling down on our efforts to push our elected officials to support 100% renewables by 2050. And, nationally with Environment America, we’re drawing a line in the sand to stop the Trump administration from rolling back climate and clean air protections from the Clean Power Plan to clean cars.

If we are going to be successful in fundamentally changing the way that we power our country, we are going to need every elected official who believes in the science of climate change and who wants to see us take it on to be vocal in their support and call on other elected leaders to do the same. And we need them to make this stand as loudly as possible—to make it clear that supporting climate action is good policy and good politics.

The Job Description
PennEnvironment’s Climate Defender Organizers are responsible for recruiting, developing and mobilizing powerful teams of concerned citizens to become climate volunteers in critical communities across the state.

As a Climate Defender Organizer, you will work with our existing network of hundreds of team members and activists, and expand volunteer teams in key political areas to ensure support from local decision-makers for climate action. Whether it’s educational events with leaders like U.S. Senator Bob Casey or rallies with elected officials like Philadelphia Councilman Derek Greene, you and your volunteers will organize rallies and forums to push decision-makers to lead on climate change.

You’ll coordinate regular meetings between local decision-makers and constituents; coordinate rapid response media to highlight climate impacts and hold public officials accountable; and help collect thousands of petitions and personal letters on climate change.

By the end of the campaign, you will have built volunteer teams in key areas that can continue the fight for Pennsylvania’s environment for years to come.


Locations
Philadelphia, Philadelphia suburbs

Training
There will be a week-long training near the beginning of the campaign. We will also hold periodic trainings on advanced skills for organizers.

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

Qualifications
We’re seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and recruiting new leaders to protect the environment. We look for smarts, organizing experience and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups. College graduates, graduating seniors, and rising seniors are invited to apply .

Our Climate Defender Organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with PennEnvironment and Environment America--the federation of state groups of which we’re a part--at the end of the campaign.

How to Apply
Apply online here. Positions will be filled on a rolling basis.

Things to Know When You Apply
Environment America and PennEnvironment are part of The Public Interest Network — a group of organizations that share a vision of a better future, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to making positive change. Click here for things you should know about our network when you apply.

Organizing Director for PennEnvironment @ Environment AmericaMon, 20 Nov 17 16:24:09 -0500http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7831http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7831Organization Name: Environment America
Location: Philadelphia, PA View Google Map
Job Post Date: 20 Nov 2017
Job Terms: Full Time
Salary: To be negotiated
Anticipated Start Date: 15 Dec 2017

Job Description

As the state’s largest citizen-based environmental advocacy group, PennEnvironment seeks a dynamic leader and experienced organizer who is ready to lead a team of staff members who will move Pennsylvania to 100% renewable energy, clean up the Commonwealth’s largest polluters, protect the outdoor places we love, and stand up to the fracking industry.

At PennEnvironment, we know that it takes an active and engaged citizenry to tackle the largest problems facing our environment, from climate change to pollution in our rivers and streams. As part of our leadership team, the PennEnvironment Organizing Director leads our statewide campaign staff as they build the grassroots and political power it will take to protect our air, water and open spaces. Specifically, the Organizing Director works with our staff to activate volunteers in key communities, coordinate our coalition work, and drive media coverage throughout the Commonwealth. The Organizing Director should be based in Philadelphia and will report directly to the Executive Director, David Masur.
BACKGROUND

PennEnvironment’s mission is to advance the environmental values we share and win tangible results. We advocate for 100% renewable energy that doesn’t pollute and never runs out; clean rivers and streams, and water to drink; and clean air to breathe; preserved parks and wilderness from Ohiopyle to the Delaware Water Gap.

During our forty-year history, PennEnvironment has stood up to powerful polluters and politicians in our fight for the environment. We were the first organization to call for a ban on fracking, and we lead the effort to mobilize over 100,000 Pennsylvanians to join our call to ban this dangerous practice. We’ve developed a network of hundreds of Climate Defender volunteers; organized town halls and rallies with critical decision makers from U.S. Senator Bob Casey to Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto to Philadelphia City Council Blondell Reynolds Brown. Our research on lead in drinking water received statewide media coverage, leading to a bipartisan group of legislators pledging to introduce legislation to implement some of our policy recommendations. And, we’ve helped launch innovative coalitions, such as the Philadelphia Healthy Schools Initiative, which includes Philadelphia’s teachers’ union, parent groups, public health experts and environmental officials working to tackle health problems in our school buildings.
KEY RESPONSIBILITIES
• Staff Management and Training: Oversee PennEnvironment’s staff across the state. Provide them with management and mentorship, skills training, and the support they need to build power and to win campaigns. You’ll help develop campaign activities, run trainings with your staff to develop and hone skills, and travel regularly to participate in campaign activities with your staff.
• Strategic Planning and Program Development: Be part of the team that sets the organization’s agenda by identifying the biggest environmental threats and developing the strategy and tactics to solve these problems. You will also help develop campaign materials for key organizing tactics your staff are executing, including media materials, grassroots materials like petitions, and event materials.
• Communications and Organizational Visibility: Work to increase coverage of environmental issues in the media and highlight PennEnvironment’s work on these issues through events, news releases and meetings.
• Power Building: The big solutions needed to protect our environment, from moving to 100% renewables to banning fracking, will take years. The Organizing Director will help PennEnvironment build more political power through our campaigns. You will develop and execute best practices to improve our organizing; innovate new methods to engage the public; develop plans to expand our volunteer networks, coalition partners and reach; and evaluate the success of our programs to ensure we’re building more power over time.
• Fundraising: Build lasting relationships in the foundation community, develop a network of donors through your work, and help execute small donor fundraising opportunities to build our membership.

QUALIFICATIONS
Candidates must have at least 5 years of organizing experience, such as community organizing, campus organizing, campaign coordination, environmental advocacy, or coalition-building. Environmental advocacy and campaign coordination is strongly preferred. The ideal candidate is passionate about mobilizing the public support crucial for protecting our environment and movement building, and has a track record of accomplishment and an ability to work effectively with people from divergent political beliefs and experience.
If you have less experience, you can apply for our Climate Defender Organizer or Fellowship at www.PennEnvironment.org/jobs.

COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS
Compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience. PennEnvironment offers a competitive benefits package.

Represent.Us is based in Northampton, MA, and recently opened a satellite office in San Francisco. Come work with us!
