Clean Wisconsin seeks a motivated professional to fill a new position as our Climate Justice Organizer. This is an exciting opportunity to build power in communities across Wisconsin to advocate for bold and equitable climate solutions. The ideal candidate will have organizing experience, a familiarity with strategies to reduce our climate impact and increase resilience in Wisconsin, and established relationships with grassroots organizations. Responsibilities include outreach and dialogue with diverse communities, education and training, and elevating voices through media and events to demonstrate strong public support for addressing climate change in Wisconsin. The organizer will specifically strengthen relationships and engage in mutual learning with underserved communities disproportionately subjected to environmental harms, and work to center these voices in advocating for solutions.
This is a full-time position reporting to the Climate Solutions Director that will eventually be based at one of Clean Wisconsin’s offices (Milwaukee or Madison). Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this position will currently be remote, with limited exceptions, until Clean Wisconsin determines it is safe for staff to return to the office. Similarly, once it is safe to travel for outreach and educational events, the Climate Justice Organizer will engage in in-person activities requiring limited travel around Wisconsin. Occasional early morning, evening, and weekend events may be required.
