Impact is a non-profit project of leading advocacy organizations, including Environment America and USPIRG, that creates the grassroots action and power it takes to make an impact on issues that matter. We’re hiring a team of organizers for a two-year program. Organizers currently work in 25 states. We’re working with national campaigns to get our country to 100 percent renewable energy, reduce corporate agriculture’s pollution of our water, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IMPACT
What will you do with Impact? First, you’ll come together with other new and experienced staff from across the country to learn how to make your impact in classroom trainings on the issues, our campaigns, our strategies and the tactics you’ll be using throughout the year. Then, you’ll put those skills to use in the field. Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and where you can make the biggest difference. For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a major restaurant to stop serving meat raised on antibiotics. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that switching to more renewable energy is an opportunity to be a hero with the public. Even when there’s not a vote coming up, organizing helps build long-term power to secure victories in the future. By first educating people on an issue and then winning them over to our point of view, we lay the groundwork for political change. It’s challenging, fun and incredibly meaningful. We’re taking on big issues and we’re up against big adversaries. We run campaigns with concrete goals, detailed plans, rigorous training, and above all, a laserlike focus on results.
START DATE: Positions starting immediately or August 2017
PAY & BENEFITS The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
