Grassroots Organizer

Clean Water Action focuses on campaigns related to water access, water quality, and environmental justice. Our recent victories include increasing Michigan's renewable energy goals, stopping bottled water withdrawals from the Great Lakes, and funding lead pipe replacement in the city of Flint.

Our current work focuses on passing a strong polluter pay law. Michigan has no shortage of water quality concerns. Many polluting companies put our water and health at risk, and right now, taxpayers are often left to pay for the clean up. We're working to pass a law that holds these polluters accountable and makes sure they're responsible for the clean up instead.

As part of our staff, you would organize communities around these vital issues. Responsibilities include one-on-one communication, education, fundraising, dispersing information, volunteer recruitment, and good record keeping.

We look for candidates who have strong oral and written communication skills, and who possess good attention to detail. Candidates should have an interest in environmental or social justice issues, non-profit work, or politics. Though we accept applicants from all major backgrounds, candidates with a background in Social Work, Sociology, Communications, Political Science, Public Health, or Environmental Studies are especially encouraged to apply. We do provide extensive training on the job responsibilities and on the issues we cover.

The hours for the work are from 2pm to 10:30pm, Monday through Friday. Pay for full time is $450-575 per week. We are currently interviewing for full time positions starting in the fall, or beginning in January or May of 2020. We provide a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, and life insurance, and 401k; opportunities for travel within Michigan and throughout the US; and the potential for long term growth within the organization.
