Climate Justice Director - Community Action Works

Opportunity Type: Job

The Lead Community Organizer and Climate Justice Director organizes on the ground with local community groups in Massachusetts and co-coordinates the statewide coalition Mass Power Forward that joins frontline and fenceline groups with the environmental community to advance clean energy and environmental justice. In leading the organization’s climate-related work, the Climate Justice Director also supports our team region-wide to organize with local communities facing the most profound threats to their health and the climate. 

Joining the team at Community Action Works, you’ll get to dive into building power with communities facing the most profound environmental and climate threats, while driving a statewide coalition led by the very community members who are most impacted. You will have the opportunity to work side by side with community leaders, developing their leadership while growing your own. And your role in working with other environmental organizations will be to center Black, Indigenous, communities of color and working class communities, and other communities deeply impacted by pollution. Our team at Community Action Works is closely knit, and we weave in relationship-building, cultural exploration, on-going training, and healing practices into every aspect of our work, as we build a culture where organizers can thrive.

Location: Boston or Northampton, MA

Application Deadline: October 19, 2020
