NY Organizing Coordinator, 350.org

350.org


Description
350.org is looking for a talented New York-based person to support a mass mobilization in September, 2014. This is a full- time contract position in New York City.

On September 23, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is hosting a Climate Leadership Summit for heads of state from around the world to come to New York City and spend a day announcing new "pledges" of how they will take action to address the climate crisis. We're less interested in what will happen inside the summit, than what could happen out in the streets.

We think this UN climate summit is a unique opportunity to mobilize hundreds of thousands of people in the streets of New York City--and around the world--to demand climate justice and a new economy that puts people and planetary health first. The summit will likely be the only time in the next five years that the world's presidents and prime ministers will be in the same place to talk about climate change. This is our moment to turn the tide - helping organize a historic, ambitious event that brings together a diverse "movement of movements" to transform our political landscape and confront the climate crisis.

Position Type: Full time contract April through September, 2014 Application Deadline: This position is open until filled Start Date: ASAP Compensation: Competitive compensation based on experience Location: New York City

Popular education campaigns on climate and inequality led by civic, community, environmental justice and labor groups. Leadership development programs within key neighborhoods and constituencies. Managing and developing projects for three 350.org Fellows for the summer focused on the mobilization. Recruitment and up-to-date tracking of local volunteers for all aspects of the mobilization. Developing and managing NY-area canvass, phone bank and outreach programs. Engaging on overall mobilization logistics as part of a small team.

Qualifications:
