Clean Virginia is an independent advocacy organization with an associated Political Action Committee, Clean Virginia Fund, working to fight legalized corruption in Virginia politics in order to promote clean energy and community control over our energy policy. We are motivated by the core belief that our democracy should serve the interests of citizens over special interests and that our energy policy should be a vehicle for social and economic justice in this country, not a driver of climate change, environmental degradation, inequality and political disenfranchisement.
Clean Virginia is working towards these goals in three ways: first, we design innovative campaigns to educate, inform, and engage Virginians on clean government and consumer-first clean energy. Second, we engage in innovative research to enact structural reform that protects consumers, promotes clean government, and advances 21st-century energy policy. Third, we support candidates for state-level elected office in Virginia who prioritize the interests of Virginians over those of the Commonwealth’s utility monopolies in order to eliminate the undue influence of these monopolies over the public officials who regulate them.
About Us: We are a small team of dedicated people headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia. We are a highly collaborative staff, and we lean on the collective experience, knowledge and skills of our team and cultivate interpersonal trust and open communication.
Clean Virginia is committed to a just, representative and inclusive working environment. All interested individuals, particularly people of color, women, persons with disabilities, and persons who are LGBTQ are urged to apply.
