CLIMATE EMERGENCY! ACTIVISTS NEEDED!
New York's largest environmental and consumer advocacy group is now hiring for a statewide campaign to protect the environment and public health. The New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that advances important public interest issues through sophisticated grassroots organizing and advocacy, public education, and media exposure. Since 1973, NYPIRG has played a key role in fighting for more than 150 public interest laws and executive orders that protect the environment and public health, safeguard consumers, improve public transportation, and foster open responsive government.
Climate change is the most urgent issue of our time. With climate deniers firmly in control of national policies, it will be up to the states to hold corporate polluters accountable. New York must lead the way!
NYPIRG is hiring college students, recent grads, and others to mobilize the public on this critical issue. Build your resume, make friends, earn $2800/month this summer, and help build a movement to stop climate change and win a renewable energy future. The position is well-suited for students interested in a job that provides valuable organizing and public speaking skills in a campaign environment as well as for recent graduates interested in a career in public interest work or preparing for law or graduate school.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate is energetic and has good communication skills and a strong concern for environmental and social justice issues. Prior campaign experience is a plus, and there are rapid advancement opportunities for qualified individuals.
