The Romero Institute — a nonprofit law and policy center at the forefront of social and environmental justice movements — seeks an experienced Online Organizer to serve as the frontline, online voice for our Let’s Green CA program. You’ll write amazing content and help lead our digital grassroots strategy, you’ll relish expanding our movement by driving our supporters to action, and you’ll be excited to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the environmental justice advocacy space. The ideal candidate must love to create inspiring copy for diverse, environmentally active audiences, design creative multimedia content, and grow our netroots-based fundraising.

Our Let’s Green California program operates at the local, regional, and statewide levels to promote effective climate action. Are you passionate about justice for the communities most affected by the climate crisis? Do you believe we must reach carbon neutrality as fast as we can? Now is the perfect time to join our team, because we’re empowering people across California to embrace energized stewardship of the Earth.

In this role, you’ll work closely with our leadership team to build local, regional and statewide support for global climate solutions, including:

  • Developing and promoting written content and outreach materials — including blogs, eblasts, and social media copy — that keep our organization and the State of California at the forefront of climate action;
  • Tracking and participating in the online dialog around climate initiatives in California;
  • Educating and mobilizing a diverse coalition of people — inclusive of BIPOC and environmental justice communities — in support of progressive climate policy, events, and advocacies;
  • Identifying and developing calls to action that engage and grow our universe of online supporters;
  • Identifying, cultivating, and mobilizing online leaders, including collaboration with other environmental justice-focused influencers and organizations.

Our ideal candidate will:

  • Demonstrate a fierce commitment to social, economic, racial, and climate justice;
  • Have excellent organizational, writing, and verbal skills — with the abilities to inspire, observe, and be political in all communications;
  • Be passionate about fostering genuine working relationships based on trust and solidarity with a diverse array of partners;
  • Be highly proactive, taking initiative on projects from conception to completion;
  • Show the ability to juggle projects, deadlines, and relationships with key stakeholders;
  • Have at least three years experience working for a community, labor, nonprofit, or environmental organization;
  • Be English-Spanish bilingual (preferred but not required)

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or three to five years of relevant experience;
  • A passion to address the climate crisis and issues faced by BIPOC communities;
  • Prior work with senior-level executives, preferably in a nonprofit environment, to develop and execute plans and campaigns;
  • Ability to see the big picture and think strategically while executing tactical tasks;
  • High energy and relentless positivity; team-oriented, motivated, flexible, and attentive to detail;
  • Exceptional communications and relationship building skills;
  • Knowledge of environmental policy and public health issues

Dedicated to equity, we embrace diversity and take equal opportunity seriously. We’re committed to building and supporting a team that reflects a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We strongly encourage applicants from all walks of life.
