The Community Organizer is responsible for working directly with members and potential members to design, run, and support issue campaigns. Clean Air’s issue campaigns address a range of problems primarily through the lenses of environmental justice and just transition work. The Community Organizer builds strong member teams, collaborates with the staff team, and plans and facilitates regular events including team meetings, public and membership meetings, workshops, and trainings.


This job offers an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of equity and grassroots community organizing work. We invest in and follow the leadership of our members. Member-leaders set the pace, identify issues and targets, and create the strategy and tactics. This work requires a generous and ferocious love of people, and willingness to take on the powerful even when it’s uncomfortable or messy. You will be challenged often, pushed to the limit, learn a bunch, have a lot of fun, be frustrated on occasion, inspired frequently, and make a real difference in people’s lives.
