FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR FUTURE.
Impact is a non-profit project of leading advocacy organizations, including Environment America and USPIRG, that creates the grassroots action and power it takes to make an impact on issues that matter. We’re hiring a team of organizers for a two-year program. Organizers currently work in 25 states. We’re working with national campaigns to get our country to 100 percent renewable energy, reduce corporate agriculture’s pollution of our water, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT
Every day with Impact is different. You could be connecting with new health or consumer groups to build a coalition to stop antibiotic overuse, speaking in a church basement or at a town hall meeting on 100 percent renewable energy, organizing a news event on water pollution from factory farms, or meeting with an editorial board about any of these issues. During the summer, you’ll run a citizen outreach canvass—and have the power of a paid staff of college students and others ready to help you build support for an issue, recruit new members, and raise funds for the campaign. And you’ll recruit the next wave of Impact organizers and interns so we can continue to work on more campaigns. So if what you want to do after college is to join a team of people who bring their passion to work every day to make an impact on issues that matter, then we’re the group for you.
