Hiring Passionate Activists to Defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

U.S. PIRG is a consumer group that stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our financial security, or our right to fully participate in our democratic society.

Right now U.S. PIRG is fighting to defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from legislation that would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the CFPB as we know it.

The CFPB is the first federal agency devoted to protecting consumers in the financial marketplace. You may recall that in in 2016 the CFPB held Wells Fargo accountable for unfair treatment of its customers. The enforcement action the CFPB took against Wells Fargo was one of many times the CFPB has required banks and other financial companies to pay fines and compensate customers for wrongdoing.

In order to mobilize widespread support to protect the CFPB, U.S. PIRG is hiring people who are passionate about advocating for our citizen’s best interests.

U.S. PIRG fellows work hard to advocate for the public interest — whether it’s by developing campaigns, building coalitions, mobilizing and organizing the public, showcasing our work online and in the media, or making our case directly to decision makers.

Work with Environment America Think bold? Work hard? We’re hiring.

Environment America is hiring summer field organizers to help us fight global warming!

Background
2016 was the hottest year ever recorded. And in 2015, 72 U.S. cities had more than 100 days with dangerous air. At a time when we need to be moving forward to protect our health and climate, President Trump and the Congress are moving backward – dismantling dozens of important environmental protections. This summer, Environment America will be building public support in politically critical states across the country to defend against attacks to our air and climate. We’ll organize to guard against rollbacks to the Clean Air Act, clean car standards, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Job Description
That’s where you come in. Environment America’s summer field organizers will work to generate media attention, mobilize hundreds of citizens across their states, and build diverse coalitions of organizations and opinion leaders to push for action. Our summer field organizers will also spend two weeks working with our citizen outreach offices to recruit new members and raise money through canvassing to support the campaign.

Timeline
This position begins in May and ends in August. Our summer field organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with Environment America at the end of the campaign.

Location
Columbus, OH
Washington, DC or Richmond, VA

Training
There will be a week-long training in Washington D.C. near the beginning of the campaign.

Compensation and Benefits
Target annual compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate has. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package.

Summer Field Organizing is an incredible opportunity for both experienced and brand new organizers who want to gain skills in environmental activism and organizing. We offer an excellent training program and work to place our organizers with organizations working for change after the summer campaign.

Qualifications
We’re seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and fighting for the environment. We look for smarts, academic excellence, and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups.

WorldTeach Climate and Ocean Education Symposium

WorldTeach is concerned about how we are harming the future with our collective, negative impact on the world’s ocean. WorldTeach wants to do its part to promote awareness and protect the coastal and marine ecosystems.

We all depend on the same ocean. It is the very “foundation of human life” according to the United Nations’ Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This is why WorldTeach has teamed up with Stevenson School and the Monterey Bay Research Aquarium Institute (MBARI) to offer the first Symposium on Ocean and Climate Education. Please consider joining from June 19th-23, 2017 in Pebble Beach, CA as we learn about the latest in marine and climate science, and are guided in using data to educate our own communities about the fate of our ocean. Invited guests include field researchers from Stanford Hopkins Marine Station and representatives from environmental and education agencies in the Marshall Islands, American Samoa and Micronesia.

The Symposium partners are generously contributing their time and resources to this effort, enabling us to price this conference at cost for $350, including meals, accommodations, outdoor excursion, and all symposium fees. Here is a brochure with more information. To register, email to indicate your interest to symposium@worldteach.org before May 20th.
