We are in the midst of a health crisis of epidemic proportions. Global corporations have driven a breakdown of our food system and children today face skyrocketing rates of diet-related diseases like obesity and type II diabetes. Fast food corporations like McDonald’s target children as young as two—hooking them on the junk food brand at a young age and creating customers for life. With billion-dollar marketing budgets that intentionally target low income communities and communities of color, McDonald’s and the fast food industry drive disproportionately high rates of diet-related disease among these communities.

Corporate Accountability International’s Value [the] Meal campaign challenges the fast food industry and Big Food for their egregious abuses, ensuring we have a sustainable food system which is nourishing us instead of making us sick.

Major Responsibilities:
Mobilize constituencies across the country critical to advancing the goals of the campaign. Lead outreach and relationship-building with strategic partners key to challenging McDonald’s and the fast food industry and develop leaders within these networks.

Foster relationships with and build leadership of activists and allies across the country through in- person, phone, and email communication. Lead trainings with Corporate Accountability International staff and lead activists on campaign issues, organizing, and corporate campaign fundamentals. Develop plans and execute logistics for coordinated national, regional, and local actions and events.

Create campaign action materials and toolkits. Plan, develop, and design materials and toolkits to assist activists and strategic partners in the implementation of campaign actions at the local and regional level.

Participate in the development and implementation of strategic campaign plans that drive the campaign forward and expand the power base of allies and activists involved in the campaign.

Serve as a lead campaign spokesperson on media interviews with local, regional, and international outlets. Represent the campaign and Corporate Accountability International in public presentations in regional and national venues.

Participate in outreach and interviews to recruit new staff and interns and manage one or more campaign interns.

Participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising and campaign activities.


Salary and benefits: Commensurate with experience, with a generous benefits package including health, dental, FSA, 401(k), ongoing training and leadership development opportunities. Positive, fast-paced, collaborative, and impact-oriented organizational culture.

Location: Campaign Headquarters, Boston, MA

Posted: December 12, 2014
