At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature – to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive!
The Center for Biological Diversity seeks a full-time Organizer in our Climate Law Institute to join our campaign for progressive, urgent federal action to address the climate emergency. The position will be based in our Washington, D.C., Los Angeles or Oakland, CA offices, or another location as considered on a case-by-case basis. This is a 1-year term position with the possibility for extension.
General position overview:
The Climate Law Institute wages innovative legal and grassroots campaigns to protect people, wildlife and ecosystems from climate change and the dirty and dangerous fossil fuel industry. We work to eliminate greenhouse pollution and speed the just transition to 100 percent clean, renewable energy. Our current federal campaign priorities include ensuring President Biden follows through as the climate president by ending all federal fossil fuel leases and permits, banning crude oil and gas exports, declaring a climate emergency, and paving the way for a nationwide just transition that fully phases out fossil fuel production.
The successful candidate will play a key role in our national organizing and campaigning work, and will further deepen our work across movements for climate, racial and economic justice. Organizers are part of a dynamic, collaborative team including fellow organizers as well as scientists, legal and media professionals.
