PennEnvironment needs an experienced advocate to drive our online campaigns to protect Pennsylvania’s environment. This person will work with PennEnvironment’s Executive Director and state program team as well as with our organizers, stakeholders and key allies to launch online campaigns to stop global warming, build a strong clean energy future, save the bees, remove lead in drinking water, and end fracking.

Our online network has helped defeat legislation that would grant the fracking industry liability immunity in many cases by generating nearly 10,000 letters from Pennsylvanians in just 24 hours. We’ve helped defeat legislation that would undermine key climate policies. And, we’ve helped recruit hundreds of citizens to community events to highlight local environmental problems.
