The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of over three million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 430 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, MT and Beijing.
NRDC is seeking a Strategic Communications Manager to focus on a cross-section of local and national policy advocacy, lifestyle and brand public relations.
