Job Description: Just Transition Associate

OVERVIEW

MEJC is a statewide coalition working to achieve a clean, healthy and safe environment for Michigan’s most vulnerable residents in alignment with the EJ Principles through increasing knowledge, enhancing networks and taking action for systemic change. We are a membership-led organization, with members from diverse skillsets, backgrounds and identities. MEJC convened in 2011 to grow the environmental justice movement in Michigan. Every two years MEJC hosts the EJ Statewide Summit to bring together local EJ groups, leaders of color, and tribal members to strategize and amplify their fights. In 2020 we hosted the 4th EJ Summit, led 3 major campaigns in energy democracy, toxics, and cumulative impact, deployed 3 community action research projects, and engaged in the Get Out the Vote efforts in Michigan reaching over 65,000 EJ voters. By 2023 we hope to define climate justice in Michigan for an ambitious climate agenda. MEJC is a sponsored project of the Allied Media Projects (AMP).
