About 350.org

About the Senior Organizer Position

The Senior Organizer will build 350.org’s base and membership in the United States, bring those members and groups into campaigns, and develop leadership. The senior organizer will use traditional organizing skills and digital platforms  to recruit members, activists and leaders to take concrete action on the climate crisis, to stop the fossil fuel industry, and to usher in real climate solutions.  The organizer will also support individuals and groups on leadership development, strategic planning, campaign development and organizing coordination.
