About EVHybridNoire

EVHybridNoire is the nation’s largest network of diverse electric vehicle drivers and enthusiasts. A Black-led organization with a passionate and dedicated team, our mission is to advance EVs and other e-mobility solutions--and ensure those solutions are inclusive and equitable. We engage with communities often left out of e-mobility discussions, advocate for e-mobility solutions in underserved communities, and shift the narrative about e-mobility to be more inclusive of diverse populations. Specifically, our work involves a mix of grassroots engagement, media outreach, research, speaking engagements, and advocacy and decision-maker education. That work spans many aspects of e-mobility and equity, including climate justice, workforce development, public health, multimodal mobility and creative financing of e-mobility solutions. We’re currently focused on growing our organization to meet growing demand for our advocacy efforts and thought leadership.

The Western States Program Manager, who will be based in California and reports to the Deputy Director, is responsible for the following:

  • Coordinating the development and implementation of multiple e-mobility project and campaign plans in several different cities and states
  • Representing EVHybridNoire at coalition tables, conferences and in meetings with policymakers and partners, and advocating for EVHybridNoire’s priorities

  • Drafting and submitting opinion pieces, research summaries and action alerts to media outlets, online forums and EVHybridNoire’s citizen members
  • Keeping abreast of policy and e-mobility market developments in multiple states, to help ensure we direct our resources toward where they are most needed and can have the biggest impact 
  • Working with our team, as well as with our partners and decision-maker contacts, to develop policy proposals that advance EVHybridNoire’s priorities
  • Building and nurturing working relationships with decision-makers, advocacy partners and opinion leaders in the e-mobility space
