We’re hiring people to help solve some of our country’s biggest problems, problems we shouldn’t tolerate in an age of great abundance and technological progress.
When we tackle a problem like this we almost always encounter special interests trying to block progress or maintain the status quo. To overcome that opposition, and make sure our solutions stick, we have to win a lot of people over to our side. To do that, we have to bring people together in ways that get beyond political labels; we have to find common ground and use that to generate broad support. Take our work reducing air pollution for example. Even with huge opposition from utilities, car manufacturers and fossil fuel interests, we've won laws and policies which continue to save lives by limiting air pollution from power plants, cars and other sources. In fact, deaths from air pollution dropped nearly in half between 1990 and 2010.
If you are ready to roll up your sleeves and win more results for the public, we’d love to hear from you. But you'll also be joining a great team of advocates, researchers, policy experts and communications specialists, who share a vision, and a passion for making a difference in people’s lives. At our online jobs center you can find out more about all our positions including:
