State Operations Fellowship for the Climate Action Campaign




District of Columbia
United States


The Climate Action Campaign is a highly effective, unbranded coalition of national climate, conservation, and progressive groups, state and local partners, and key allies working to protect clean air and promote action to limit climate change. The Campaign serves as the center of gravity for defense of federal climate policy and the convening point for traditional and non-environmental advocacy groups supporting climate action and clean energy policy at the local, state and federal levels. The Campaign drives activity that creates political space for leaders to take action and holds accountable those who oppose common sense public health and climate change policy.



The Climate Action Campaign Fellowship is an internship program designed to immerse its participants in the environmental advocacy field. Assignments vary and are designed to both support the campaign with its mission to support action on climate change and assist the fellow with his/her professional growth. This position allows interaction with all of the campaign's departments providing a wide breadth of experiences. As an integral part of the team, fellows will experience how public support is generated for action on climate, and how that shapes results on a national level.
