The NRDC Action Fund is an affiliated but separate organization from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). The NRDC Action Fund’s mission is to build political support in the United States for protecting the planet and its people. We mobilize influential constituencies, experts, community leaders and others to directly advocate for clean air and water, public health, biodiversity, and a stable climate. We support candidates who stand up for environmental protection, and we expose those who side with polluters rather than the public good.
The NRDC Action Fund political and advocacy director has lead responsibility for guiding the advocacy strategies for the NRDC Action Fund’s environmental defense campaign. Working with key program, communications, and Center for Policy Advocacy staff, the political and advocacy director will ensure that all activities undertaken by the NRDC Action Fund advance the strategic direction of the organization and are aligned with the work of the communications team and the issue advocacy work of the institution. The political and advocacy director will also work with NRDC Action Fund staff to develop and implement a powerful electoral plan.
The NRDC Action Fund is committed to workplace diversity and inclusion. We are equal opportunity employers and do not discriminate in hiring or employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.
