At Community Action Works (formerly Toxics Action Center), we believe that environmental threats are big, but the power of well-organized community groups is bigger. That’s why we work side by side with everyday people to confront those who are polluting and harming the health of our communities. We partner with the people who are most impacted by environmental problems, especially Black, Indigenous, communities of color and poor communities, training them with the know-how anyone would need to make change in their own backyard. Because when neighbors know how to make change, they can build the power to transform our world.
ABOUT THE POSITION
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 leading the organization toward our vision of creating the beautiful, just world we know is possible. You will have the opportunity to work side by side with community organizers, developing their leadership and helping them troubleshoot campaigns. You’ll back organizers in centering Black, Indigenous, communities of color and working class communities, and other communities deeply impacted by pollution. You’ll join the team in diving deep into what it means to undo racism and classism through our work. 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.
