Description

Clean Water Action works on water quality, water access, and environmental justice issues in Michigan. Our current campaign is focused on Nestle's water withdrawals from Michigan. Nestle already withdraws 200,000 gallons of water a day from our state's groundwater. They are now proposing to more than double their pumping (to 400 gallons per minute) at one of their sites. We are working to defeat this proposal. We need to make sure that decisions about Michigan's water, and control over it, stay in the hands of the people here in Michigan.

Clean Water Action is an organization with nearly 300,000 members in Michigan working to empower people to take action to protect America's waters, build healthy communities and to make democracy work for all of us. For 45 years Clean Water Action has succeeded in winning some of the nation's most important environmental protections through grassroots organizing, expert policy research and political advocacy focused on holding elected officials accountable to the public.

Responsibilities

As part of our staff, you would organize communities around environmental issues. Responsibilities and benefits include:

• Helping to elect environmental champions and pass legislation at the federal, state, and local levels
• Serving as the in-field support for our lobbying team by doing fundraising and recruiting volunteers for the organization
• Giving community members a voice by enabling them to contact their elected officials
• Gaining knowledge about environmental issues and grassroots organizing

The hours for the work are from 2pm to 10:30pm, Monday through Friday, or at least 3 days a week between Monday and Friday. Pay for full time is $400-515 per week. We are hiring for full or part-time positions starting immediately or with the fall semester. We provide full benefits for both full and part time, opportunities for travel to other offices within our network and to national conferences, and the potential for growth within the organization.

Clean Water Action provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics.

Requirements

We are currently looking for dependable, motivated individuals to be part of our grassroots campaigns. Good communication and reading skills are a must. You must also possess a genuine interest in environmental and social justice issues, non-profit work, or politics. A background in environmental or political science is preferred, but not required. We do provide extensive training on the job responsibilities and on the issues we cover, and you will receive regular briefings from our team of policy experts on how your work impacts our campaigns day to day.
