Environment Connecticut’s Field Associate will build the public and political support we need to protect Connecticut’s environment. We face powerful opposition, and to overcome that opposition we need media attention, the support of broad-based coalitions, an informed public, and grassroots action to win the day for our environment. Our field associate will organize news events, bring community leaders and other constituencies together around our issues and organize grassroots actions to show support for our campaigns to bring wind power to the state, protect Long Island Sound, get Connecticut off oil, and more.
<b>And we’re not just hiring here in state; we’re hiring nationwide.</b> Environment Connecticut is part of the Environment America federation, a federation of 29 state-based citizen-funded environmental advocacy groups hiring recent college graduates who have the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to fight for our environmental values across the country.
<b>As an Environment America fellow,</b> you’d get a two-year crash course in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism – working alongside senior staff to plan and run grassroots campaigns, lobby lawmakers, set up and speak at news conferences, organize town hall meetings, identify new members, raise money, recruit and manage staff and much more.
