We know all about the damage we're doing to the planet: climate change,
plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But solutions are all
around us: better solar panels, better energy storage technology, better
electric cars, and on and on.
Our mission-the thing that drives everything we do-is to harness our
country's wealth, our technology and our imagination to make our world a
greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live for all of us.
Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or building
a community coalition to keep local waters clean. Imagine building the
organizational power-the funds, the membership, the activist base and
more-that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long
That's what you'll do with Environment Massachusetts during this two-year
fellowship program. We work to mobilize the support it takes to build more
solar and wind power, reduce global warming pollution, keep our beaches,
rivers and streams clean, protect our wildlife and wild places, and hold
polluters accountable when they violate our environmental laws.
What you'll do
Build powerful coalitions: Reach out to small business owners, farmers,
public health officials and others to demonstrate support for our policy
Earn traditional media and social media attention: Organize news conferences
and write opinion pieces. Build a following on Facebook and Twitter for your
Lobby elected officials: Coordinate strategy with a champion in Congress.
Make a convincing case to a legislator who is undecided on a particular
vote. Work the "inside game" to complement our outside field operation,
where most of our power is derived
Research and write reports: Catalogue and analyze sources of carbon
pollution in the U.S. Detail the success of the Clean Water Act in our
reports. Help influence public debate and earn media attention for our cause
Identify and cultivate donors: Reach out to foundations and major donors and
ask them to fund our work to tackle global warming, promote clean energy,
and protect our most spectacular natural areas
Run a grassroots campaign office each summer of your fellowship: Hire and
manage a staff of 20 canvassers. Raise money, build our organization and
membership, and help win one of our key campaigns
