With ambitious climate policies failing to gain traction at the state level and increasing numbers of wildfires, droughts and other climate impacts already hitting Oregon, now is a more critical time than ever to make concrete progress in the fight against climate change. We need to stop using fossil fuels, shift to renewable energy, use energy more efficiently, and reform the material economy that drives our society to consume past Earth’s carrying capacity. Oregon can and should play a key role in realizing this vision.
The Environment Oregon Climate Associate would work on our Climate Defenders campaign, organizing volunteers who regularly make their voices heard and help educate and engage other Oregonians on climate change.
We are seeking a Campaign Associate who will spearhead this campaign and work with our experienced team of advocates, researchers, and digital and communications experts.
Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate. Ideal candidates will have leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, an eagerness to learn, and be ready for a challenge. We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.
