Greenpeace believes that a healthy democracy is a precondition for a healthy environment. Our democracy should be our best tool to advance climate solutions, ensure environmental equity and hold corporations accountable, but it’s not working. The corrupting influence of money in politics thwarts real solutions. Obstructions to participation excludes scores of voters from engaging. And a new wave of crackdown on activism seeks to shrink democratic space and silence the dissent that makes a democracy thrive.
Greenpeace is hiring a Democracy Campaigner to work with our supporters across the country and with allies within the movement to fix our democracy, focusing on issues that intersect with Greenpeace campaigns. The Campaigner will work work with our Research, Communications, Engagement, Campaign and Legal teams to expose and combat money in politics, defend and expand voter participation, and protect the right to non violent protest to advance a better future for all.
The Democracy Campaigner will use their creative communications, campaigning and digital organizing skills to inform and engage Greenpeace supporters on issues of democracy, and working in coalition with allies in the environmental, labor, civil rights and other movement sectors to advance our shared democracy goals. This is a full time, exempt, benefits eligible position reporting to the Policy & Issue Coordinator based in Washington, DC.
