Grassroots Political Canvasser

Bookmark This


TEXAS CAMPAIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (TCE) is the state’s largest non-profit environmental and consumer advocacy group with a 25 year history of winning groundbreaking campaigns. Amongst other landmark victories, we've recently made several notable accomplishments:
• 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 you to help tackle Texas’ most recent problem, law-breaking oil and gas polluters damaging public health.

We are currently looking for dependable, motivated individuals to be part of our grassroots campaigns.

TCE’s canvassers are the best around. We seek candidates who are committed to a professional, highly community-focused door-to-door canvassing environment. We provide paid, in-house training for those with a desire to work hard. The Canvasser will be responsible for creating relationships within designated community areas of the city and building our grassroots base of supporters. The Canvasser will be held to high expectations of performance with weekly and monthly goals for various organizing activities.
