Full-Time Federal Strategist, Policy Accelerator (DC or Oakland)
Job Location: Washington, DC (preferred) or Oakland, CA
The Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund (“the Equity Fund”) is a groundbreaking funding initiative designed to drive resources to advance climate and clean energy equity and justice. Grassroots groups advocating for and organizing people hard hit by climate change — communities of color, indigenous, working class and rural communities — often lack resources, staffing, and access to develop relationships with foundation funders and major donors. Yet they are accomplishing critical work to build the collective power of communities most hurt by climate change and the use of dirty fossil fuels resulting in health problems, job losses, and displacement. The Equity Fund is a conduit for foundations and donors to partner and support these frontline organizations across the country.
The Equity Fund is seeking a highly organized, strategic, detail-oriented Federal Strategist to join its Policy Accelerator team. The primary goal of the position is to work with Equity Fund grantee partners to advance identified federal policy priorities. The Federal Strategist will also support grantee partners to expand their capacity to work on federal policy, initiatives, and programs in order to catalyze leadership in the field of climate and energy justice.
