Climate Equity Coordinator
|Department:||FAITH IN ACTION|
Climate Equity Coordinator
Who We Are:
Faith in Action is an international network of people of faith organizing for racial and economic justice. We have grassroots organizing affiliates in 23 states and more than 250 cities and towns in the U.S. We believe that people have the power to transform society through disciplined and creative organizing. We believe that faith can be a source of hope and a driver of social progress. We believe that people and communities most oppressed and excluded in society hold the keys to social change, which is where we focus our organizing and leadership development efforts.
Faith in Action is seeking to hire our first staff position focused on climate change. The person will be responsible for coaching and advising Faith in Action affiliates organizing communities of color and rural and urban communities that have historically been by-passed by environmental organizations, focusing on issues that link clean energy to racial and economic equity. The position will also be responsible for telling the story of climate equity organizing in our network, and helping affiliates raise funding for that work.
Climate equity organizing in Faith in Action:
Faith in Action affiliates in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New Mexico, Colorado, and California are at the forefront of the struggle to transition to clean energy in a way that creates investment and jobs in communities of color, rural, native and other marginalized and disinvested areas. This work is relatively new and we are in a learning curve, knowing that the climate movement cannot succeed unless people who have the most at-risk from the harm caused by fossil fuels are leading the struggle for clean energy. That requires transforming a green movement that has been far too White, too policy-focused and too out of touch with the lives of ordinary people.
