Fight the climate crisis and tar sands in Maine @ Environment MaineMon, 28 Jul 14 17:07:50 -0400http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=4926http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=4926Organization Name: Environment Maine
Location: Portland, ME View Google Map
Job Post Date: 28 Jul 2014
Job Terms: Full Time

Job Description

Fight the climate crisis and tar sands
We’re building a movement in Maine to solve the climate crisis, which threatens so much of what makes our state home—lobstering, farming, tapping, ice fishing, our rugged coast, mild summers, fall foliage, great skiing and so much more. At Environment Maine, we’re bringing together citizens, local leaders and elected officials to stop ExxonMobil’s tar sands pipeline through Maine, pass bold U.S. EPA action to require the biggest polluters to clean up and lay the groundwork for transformational change in our energy future to preserve our state and planet.

Environment Maine is hiring an organizer to stand up to polluting industries and fight for a green future.

Apply here.
.
Environment Maine
Environment Maine works to advance the environmental vision and values Mainers share—from reversing the trend of deteriorating water quality in our treasured lakes to bringing the local foods movement to scale to building an energy future based on the wind, sun, and other renewable energy. Drawing on a strong track record of success, and the support of 19,000 citizen members and supporters, we organize the support it takes to stand up to polluting industries and ultimately sweep past them.

Recent results of our work include forcing ExxonMobil to give up its state permit to export tar sands out of Casco Bay, protecting the North Woods from development, and phasing toxic BPA out of products for babies.

We are part of the Environment America federation, with sister organizations in 28 other states and a national office in Washington, D.C. The expertise and partnerships we draw from our federation allow us to have a big impact on national issues right here in Maine and to showcase what’s happening in Maine nationally.

Environment Maine’s Fellowship Program
Our organizer will be a part of our Fellowship Program. As a an Environment Maine Fellow, you’ll get a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy, and the kinds of institution building that can sustain long-term battles like the fight to solve the climate crisis.

You’ll work alongside our Campaigns Director Taryn Hallweaver, and you’ll participate in classroom trainings with Fellows from the Environment America federation a few times a year to complement what you learn in the field.

As a fellow, you won’t just learn how to make an impact; you’ll make one. Here are a few examples:

- You’ll organize rallies and public hearings. You’ll bring people together at events that draw attention to your campaigns, build momentum for action, and hold politicians accountable.

- You’ll build powerful coalitions. You’ll recruit other organizations, local leaders, and VIPs to join your campaigns.

- You’ll set up and speak at news conferences. You’ll organize news events to get the word out about your campaigns through the media. You’ll also be a spokesperson for the organization, meet with editorial boards, and publish op-eds.

- You’ll run citizen outreach campaigns. You’ll help build Environment Maine’s membership, learning to fundraise, manage staff, and educate the public.

- You’ll lobby lawmakers directly, learning to make a convincing case for our policy goals.

You’ll also have the opportunity to educate and mobilize voters to support pro-environment candidates. We’ve endorsed pro-environment candidates in tight state races since 2008, organizing in key places to help them win. And we plan to do so again in the fall of 2014, including ousting Governor Paul LePage.

Beyond your first two years
After two years as an Environment Maine Fellow, you’ll have learned the ropes, gained invaluable hands-on experience, and you’ll have made a real difference for the environment. Best of all, you’ll be ready to become a lead advocate, a lead organizer or a state director with Environment Maine or with one of our state affiliates in 28 other states. That’s the path taken by many of the people who are now leading Environment America’s top state and federal campaigns.

Qualifications
We’re seeking highly qualified candidates committed to fighting for a green future. Being a Fellow is not for everybody. It’s tough work, and the challenges never stop. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience with organizing, including building campus groups or volunteering/working with a campaign.

Location
Portland, Maine

Let us know if you’re interested in positions in other states. We can put you in touch with our state affiliates across the country.

Start date
This position would start in August.

Salary and benefits
You’ll earn $24,500 in your first year and $26,000 in your second year. You’ll be eligible to join our group health plan at no cost to you. You’ll receive two weeks of paid vacation at the completion of your first year, and accrue three weeks over the course your second year. You’ll be eligible to apply for college loan assistance after your third month, and to participate in our 401(k) plan at the end of your first year.

To learn more and apply
Apply here or contact our Environment Maine Director Emily Figdor at Emily@EnvironmentMaine.org with any questions.

Internships
Looking for an internship instead? Apply to be an Environment Maine intern. You’ll learn how to make an impact on critical environmental issues, and there’s no better way to get the experience to launch your career with us.

Work with Community Voters Project this election season @ Community Voters ProjectMon, 28 Jul 14 17:04:47 -0400http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=4925http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=4925Organization Name: Community Voters Project
Location: Portland, OR View Google Map
Job Post Date: 28 Jul 2014
Job Terms: Full Time
Salary: $459 weekly

Job Description

Directors for Community Voters Project Offices

People in power only listen to constituencies who vote. When large swaths of the public aren’t voting, that means less political power for the people who need it most. Yet, from voter ID laws to long lines at the polls to Supreme Court decisions crippling the Voting Rights Act, it seems like everywhere you turn there are forces preventing voters from turning out on Election Day.

Overcoming the increasing barriers to political participation takes a big on-the-ground effort in the communities most affected. That’s where the Community Voters Project comes in. We’re a non-partisan voter registration and get out the vote campaign, and we’re hiring directors to help thousands of new African American and Latino voters nationwide register to vote and turn out to the polls this November.

As a director you’ll be based in a city and recruit, hire and train a team of canvassers from within the community to help register new voters. You’ll oversee the entire operation from staff management to payroll and keeping accurate records in your office.

In 2012 the Community Voters Project built on its past successes by opening 19 offices and helping to register over 165,000 African American and Latino voters. There’s more work to be done, and we need you to join us.



Qualifications: Candidates must have leadership experience, strong communication skills, and have completed at least one year of college. Experience with political campaigns, canvassing, or phonebanking is a plus.

Compensation: Salaries for Citizen Outreach directors will start at a salary rate of $459 per week. Staff will be expected to cover initial relocation costs. We offer paid training and opportunities for travel and advancement.

Locations: Community Voters Project is seeking canvass directors to run offices in Colorado, , North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, and Georgia..

To apply:
Apply online. Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis and candidates will be hired on a rolling basis between August 1 and August 30, 2014.

Recruitment and hiring for the Community Voters Project is conducted by Work for Progress.

Job Description

MIDTERM CAMPAIGN DIRECTORS: HELP KEEP PROGRESSIVES IN CONGRESS

The 2014 Midterm elections will be close, and control of the Senate will come down to a few key races. One of the most important races in the country is in Colorado.

Colorado is a key battleground for stopping a right-wing takeover of Congress. Work for Progress is working with its partners to open 11 campaign offices to re-elect Mark Udall and defeat his Tea Party challenger, and we’re seeking talented organizers to run those offices. You’ll recruit, hire, and train a staff of campaigners who will help turn out voters for progress on Election Day. Together, you and the staff you recruit will help stem the conservative tide and be part of moving our country forward this November.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Staff Management
Being a Director requires that you work independently, exercising good judgment and discretion, to meet the office’s staffing, campaign, and field work goals.

Recruit, Train and Manage a Staff of Canvassers
• Recruit, hire, and manage a campaign staff of 10-40 staff.
• Train staff on effective canvassing and campaigning techniques.
• Run staff meetings and skills trainings.
• Evaluate staff performance and give ongoing feedback.
• Identify strong staff, teach them leadership skills, and promote from within.

Canvass
• Lead by example. Canvass five to six days a week so you can train new staff, evaluate current staff, and meet your personal voter contact goals.

QUALIFICATIONS
Candidates must have leadership experience, strong communication skills, and have completed at least one year of college. Experience with political campaigns, canvassing, or phonebanking is a plus.

SALARY / BENEFITS
Salaries for Citizen Outreach directors will start at a salary rate of $459 per week. Staff will be expected to cover initial relocation costs. We offer paid training and opportunities for travel and advancement.
