Organizer, North Atlantic & Chesapeake Regions
Waterkeeper Alliance is a global environmental movement uniting more than 300 Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates around the world and focusing citizen action on the issues that affect our waterways, from pollution to climate change. Waterkeeper Alliance is seeking candidates for the role of Organizer, North Atlantic & Chesapeake Regions.
The Organizer is a dynamic, goal-oriented professional within the Organizing Department that works to strengthen and amplify the voice of Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates in the North Atlantic/Chesapeake regions through capacity-building, advocacy, communications, and fundraising. The Organizer reports directly to the Organizing Director and will work to support Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to ensure that they are the most effective, best, and brightest water advocates.
The Organizer is responsible for ensuring the needs of Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates are met, uniting them as a powerful force, and organizing their collective action. As a liaison for Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates in the North Atlantic/Chesapeake regions, the Organizer coordinates and promotes the work of all of Waterkeeper Alliance’s grassroots advocates. The Organizer will work to implement the Strike Force/Rapid Response team that both supports Waterkeepers in a time of crisis, and addresses critical water issues in communities that do not yet have a dedicated Waterkeeper. The Organizer will also work with Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to integrate Waterkeeper Alliance’s three campaigns into watersheds and communities and provide opportunities for our Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to amplify local struggles against polluting agriculture, damaging fossil fuel development and other threats to clean water by connecting them to our broader campaigns.
