CLIMATE JUSTICE MANAGER

JOB ANNOUNCEMENT

The California Environmental Justice Alliance (CEJA) is a statewide coalition of grassroots, community-based organizations. We organize in communities most impacted by environmental issues – low-income communities and communities of color – to advance statewide policy that protects the environment and our health. For more information about CEJA, including our core member and partner organizations, please visit www.caleja.org. CEJA’s role is to advance an environmental justice (EJ) agenda in statewide policy, guided by the lived experiences of the communities we serve, and to grow the power and breadth of the EJ movement. Our work is based in the belief that no one EJ organization can win by itself; we need to be in a strategic alliance with each other to address the root causes of environmental and climate injustice.

POSITION DESCRIPTION:

 The Climate Justice Manager reports to CEJA’s Climate Justice Director and works closely with CEJA program staff, coalition members, and allies. As a key member of one of CEJA’s core programs, you will work to: lead, coordinate, and partner on strategic climate initiatives; analyze, research, and advance climate justice policy at state agencies; track and advance climate justice legislative bills; participate in public hearings and provide comments when necessary; implement strong climate justice regulatory measures; participate in and support local community efforts and initiatives; support CEJA communications strategy; advance analysis on environmental and climate federal and state investments; develop strategy documents and materials for coalition members and partners; advance fossil fuel transition strategies and provide strategic climate solutions to advance CEJA programs. 

The Climate Justice Manager will exercise good judgment and maintain a realistic balance among multiple priorities and enjoys working within a diverse organization that is mission-driven and community-oriented.

This is a regular, full-time, exempt, at-will position.

LOCATION/EMPLOYMENT STATUS:

The Climate Justice Manager position is mostly remote but will require occasional travel to CEJA’s hubs in Sacramento, Oakland, and Los Angeles, and to other locations throughout California. The Climate Justice Manager must be a resident of California.

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES: Job duties and responsibilities include but are not limited to:  

  • Committee Management: In close collaboration with the Climate Justice Director, manage the ongoing work of CEJA’s Climate Justice Committee – composed of CEJA member and partner organization staff – including preparing, facilitating, and following up on committee meetings and retreats.
  • Committee Workplan: Co-lead the development and implementation of the Climate Justice Committee’s annual work goals and priorities. 
  • Organizing and Outreach: Organize CEJA members to engage in climate justice advocacy and campaigns, committee work, and collaborative decision-making; provide capacity-building through one-on-one meetings and training; foster strong working relationships within CEJA.
  • Climate Justice Policy: Co-lead the development of climate-related policy proposals, in coordination with Committee members, relevant CEJA Directors, and other CEJA staff and play a leading role in implementing CEJA’s climate justice work; ensure progress toward deadlines and goals while adapting as necessary. 
  • Coalition Building: Build and foster strong working relationships within the Alliance, with CEJA members and partners; build relationships with external climate, transportation, and environmental justice coalitions to advance CEJA’s climate justice goals; promote issue-area alignment with allies and coalitions and provide leadership on EJ-related issues in those spaces.
  • External Representative: Serve as one of CEJA’s external representatives, cultivating and furthering relationships with a variety of decision makers and stakeholders, including elected officials, labor unions, and social justice organizations and coalitions. 
  • Communications: Work closely with the communications team and the Climate Justice Director to develop timely and relevant communications materials; as requested by the Communications Director and Climate Justice Director, serve as a media spokesperson on CEJA’s Climate Justice work. 
  • Advocacy: Participate in events to advance CEJA’s goals, as requested by the Climate Justice Director, including advocating before the legislature, executive branch, and regulatory agencies; support policy analysis of climate-related regulatory and legislative proposals.
  • Event Planning and Coordination: Plan and lead events in collaboration with CEJA staff and members to promote community building, advance climate justice campaign strategies, and provide spaces for community-led education on climate-related issues.
