Nevada Conservation League Education Fund (NCLEF) seeks a field organizer to develop and implement strategic statewide campaigns on clean energy and toxics.
As the threat of global warming grows, NCLEF’s top priority remains building a clean energy economy and cutting dependence on dirty energy sources such as coal and oil. NCLEF is also focused on other key public concerns such as the regulation of toxic chemicals and holding polluters accountable. NCLEF will continue to wage these fights on many fronts in the coming year and are looking for a creative and skilled organizer with a knack for online work to help run these campaigns in Nevada.
Working closely with NCLEF in Nevada, as well as with the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund in Washington, D.C., the Field Organizer will develop and implement campaigns that aim to move forward with critical new pollution rules for power plants and other major pollution sources, while also pushing the Obama Administration to implement the strongest pollution standards. The Field Organizer will focus in part on holding Members of Congress accountable if they side with polluters in weakening public health protections. The Field Organizer will also work to build support for new policies that regulate the most hazardous and toxic substances, many of which are currently unregulated.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Salary is commensurate with experience. This is a contract position based in Nevada that will run through completion of the campaign (approximately December 2011).
To Apply: Send cover letter, resume, and writing sample (blog, LTE, article) to firstname.lastname@example.org with "NV Field" in the subject line by March 22, 2011. No phone calls please.
