Center for Auto Safety
The Center for Auto Safety is a nonprofit consumer protection organization located in the heart of Washington, D.C., dedicated to preventing deaths and injuries from unsafe cars, trucks, and other vehicles, and protecting consumers from unfair and deceptive practices of the automobile, truck, recreational vehicle, and mobile home industries. Since 1970, it has been the leader in these fields, and is directly responsible for initiating investigations and other government and industry actions leading to the recall of millions of defective automobiles and trucks, as well as securing better motor vehicle safety standards and warranty protections for thousands of consumers. It uses public advocacy, petitions to government agencies, litigation, Congressional testimony, the Freedom of Information Act, coalition building, media attention, and a host of other advocacy tools to accomplish its mission, and is one of the most effective public interest groups in the country. This is a premier opportunity for an innovative, creative, persistent and dynamic leader to influence public policy and public health.
