The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 3.1 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 500 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.
NRDC is seeking a Clean Energy and Equity Advocate to join our Western Energy and Energy Efficiency for All project (EEFA) teams. This position will develop and oversee California strategies, policies, funding proposals, and long-term advocacy solutions to drive the deployment of affordable energy efficiency, health measures, renewable energy, and other clean energy resources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve living conditions for low-income families. It will also support NRDC’s expanding focus on ensuring access to quality jobs and that the transition out of a fossil fuel dependent energy economy will be just and equitable for all communities.
Our Western Energy team advocates for deep cuts to carbon pollution by ending our dependence on dangerous, climate-warming fossil fuels that pollute the air and water and harm public health and communities. We work for clean energy solutions that will lower consumer energy bills, create jobs, and build our economy.
EEFA unites people from diverse sectors and backgrounds to collectively make multifamily affordable buildings healthy, as well as energy- and water-efficient, to improve housing in low-income communities so they can receive their share of environmental and economic benefits. We build power to change policies and practices by seeding and supporting coalitions in 12 states including California as well as providing a platform through a national network so diverse sector leaders can convene, learn from one another and develop collective solutions.
