350Vermont is hiring a full-time Community Organizer to join our team of grassroots climate justice organizers! We’re looking for someone who has been involved in grassroots organizing before (volunteer or paid), and who brings a strong commitment to social justice and a deep justice analysis to their organizing and relationships, communicates and listens well, connects easily with a wide range of people, and thrives both collaborating closely with others and working independently.
The Community Organizer will build and strengthen the climate justice movement statewide. They will bring in new volunteers, support local volunteer teams around the state, develop volunteers’ leadership, organize events, contribute to campaign strategy, and build and maintain relationships with allies and partners. They will work closely with 350VT staff, board members, and volunteers in the context of a highly collaborative, continually evolving shared leadership structure.
The Community Organizer position is $42,226 – $44,226/year with benefits. We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and people from other underrepresented communities to apply. Learn more about the role and apply by May 29th: https://www.350vermont.org/jobs-internships
We believe that to address the climate crisis adequately, we must address its root causes. One of those root causes is power being concentrated in the hands of a few at the expense of our people and planet, which has led to many intersecting injustices. We must respect and act in solidarity with those who have been historically excluded from that power, both locally and globally, and work for solutions that hold the powerful accountable and that address energy consumption and impacts globally.
The climate crisis impacts all of us, but it disproportionately impacts those who have been excluded from decision-making tables, particularly BIPOC, frontline, and poorer communities. We must work to address how privilege and oppression show up in our organization as well as in the wider world. We believe that learning from and working with partners from the communities most impacted by the climate crisis, and making the connections between the climate crisis and interconnected injustices explicit, is essential for transforming what is politically possible.
