Food & Water Watch’s New Jersey Organizing Fellowship is a unique opportunity to learn organizing, create positive change in your community, and get paid while you’re doing it. Apply now!
Our democracy and our climate are under attack by the greed of the fossil fuel industry, harming our people and planet. The only way forward is to educate and organize our communities, building a people powered movement to win the future we deserve.
This year, Food & Water Watch is working to pass 100% renewable energy laws in Cherry Hill, Long Branch, North Brunswick, Teaneck, and Woodbridge. To do this, we’re circulating a petition to qualify the policy for a mandatory vote in each of these five towns, using direct democracy to win the climate solutions we need!
Organizing Fellows will:
Get paid $300 once they’ve collected 30 valid petition signatures, and $10 for every additional valid signature after that
Have flexible hours that can work around your existing schedule
Have access to a weekly training series to learn organizing skills
Get one on one support from Food & Water Watch organizers
Be part of an exciting and powerful new campaign to win real climate solutions
Food & Water Watch strives for a diverse work environment and encourages women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and persons with disabilities to apply.
In the midst of the pandemic, we expect most signatures to be collected through relational organizing- outreach to friends, family and other relationships in your community. That means fellows with relationships in one of our five target towns are much better positioned to reach the threshold of 30 signatures.
