DescriptionTEXAS CAMPAIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (TCE) is fighting for real environmental protections while politicians are making vague promises about what they will do if elected. You can dedicate your time to a candidate with whom you "kind of agree with on some issues if he/she has the attention span to remember campaign promises," or you can join the biggest, baddest environmental activist group in Texas that works year round to accomplish what elected officials can not or will not.
Amongst other landmark victories, we've recently accomplished:
- Fort Worth-based Pier 1 Imports phasing out out toxic flame retardants in their furniture
- Houston Mayor Annise Parker bringing curbside recycling to all Houston households
- Rayovac publicly announcing its support for manufacturer-led battery recycling programs
TCE has truly pioneered a community-based structure of organizing. Now we need your help to tackle Texas’ most recent problem, law-breaking oil and gas polluters damaging public health.
The Community Organizer will be responsible for creating relationships within designated community areas of the city and building our grassroots base of supporters. The Organizer will be held to high expectations of performance with weekly and monthly goals for various organizing activities.
