Brief Description of the organization:

Impact is a nonprofit that runs field campaigns to influence our elected officials and major corporations. We’re hiring people to work in 25 states to protect our environment, defend our democracy and advocate for the public interest. 


Brief Description of the employee’s role or key qualifications

No single day with Impact looks quite like another. Campaign tactics like running a petition drive or persuading a local group to work with you will keep you on your feet and on the go, but you’ll also need to leverage your work online. You may find yourself recruiting new community groups to join a clean water coalition, organizing a news event on 100 percent renewable energy, meeting with an editorial board about the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, or building an online following for a campaign to stop factory farms from polluting our water.
