Job Description: 

Toxics Action Center, a New England-wide non-profit public health and environmental organization, seeks a dynamic and hard-working community organizer who knows that it takes an engaged and active citizenry to make our democracy work, hold polluters accountable, and win real results for our health and the environment. Corporate polluters will go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for their messes, and government bureaucracies are slow to act. Building powerful local organizations and empowering communities to take action are critical for us to win against powerful special interests. Community organizers for Toxics Action Center organize with communities to tackle environmental threats, bring residents together to achieve proactive, positive change, and develop long-term leaders to broaden the environmental and social change movement.

 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Campaign development: You’ll identify the biggest local environmental threats, enter the threatened communities, and build relationships with key local leaders. You’ll work with local leaders to identify solutions to local environmental problems and develop creative strategies to win.
  • Community organizing training and leadership development: You will organize with 10-15 community groups each year, conducting group training consultations on campaign skills and running one-on-one coaching and leadership development sessions with community leaders.
  • Coordinate coalitions: You will work with the traditional environmental community, volunteer activists, and unlikely allies to build public support to influence decision-makers.
  • Communications: You will work to increase the organization’s media presence and name recognition through events, news releases, campaign materials, and online organizing.
  • Fundraising: You will identify and cultivate donors, assist with grant-writing, and participate in other grassroots fundraising tactics including door-to-door canvassing and planning other fundraising event

 

Salary and Benefits:
Salary for this position is commensurate with relevant professional experience. Toxics Action Center offers a competitive benefits package. Eligible staff receive health insurance, paid holidays, sick days, vacation days, and the opportunity to enroll in our college loan assistance and 401(k) programs.
