Job Title: Communications and Outreach Coordinator

Department: NJ Chapter

Location: Remote in NJ, Proximity to Trenton Chapter Office Preferred.

Reports To: Chapter Director

Supervises: N/A

Context: At the Sierra Club, we believe in the power of togetherness. Together, we remain committed to the fight for a healthy climate built on a foundation of environmental, racial, economic, and gender justice – a future where all people benefit from a healthy, thriving planet and a direct connection to nature. As the climate crisis and deeply entrenched systemic racism all fuel inequity, we will continue to fight for a bold, transformational agenda that recognizes the interconnectedness between our planet, our humanity, and our democracy. By recognizing that our destinies are tied, we continue to name that all things are fundamentally connected, and the overlap between ecology, race, gender, and representative government will move to either advance our collective humanity or to oppress it.

Sierra Club is comprised of staff across the country and a network of local chapters that support our grassroots engagement. We are also proud to be a unionized employer, with two labor unions representing more than half of our employees.

Scope: The Communications and Outreach Coordinator is responsible for coordinating and executing the Chapter's communications plan with the Chapter Director and other staff, including earning media coverage, elevating our social media presence, producing our monthly newsletter and other chapter-wide communications, and assisting with fundraising efforts. The Communications and Outreach Coordinator assists chapter staff and volunteer leaders at the Chapter and Regional Group level, in outreach to the general public, donors, and to public officials in the shaping and implementation of public policy.
