It’s an approach that has worked for four decades to produce important victories that help protect our planet and its people. We’re part of Friends of the Earth International, a federation of groups working in more than 70 countries on today’s most urgent environmental and social issues.
To accomplish our mission, Friends of the Earth is working at the nexus of environmental protection, economic policy and social justice to fundamentally transform the way our country and the world values people and the environment. We are focused on reforming economic drivers such as tax and trade policy that are often used to empower corporations and government to harm the environment.
Friends of the Earth’s climate and energy program challenges the root causes of the burgeoning climate crisis. As part of this effort we are tackling the continued reliance on fossil fuels while refusing to let the drive for non-fossil energy lead to the pollution of our air and water or further threats to our health. We promote energy efficiency and truly clean energy while fighting to end our unhealthy dependence on dirty energy sources like coal, oil, nuclear and corn ethanol.
Friends of the Earth is seeking a talented and dedicated individual to conduct hard-hitting advocacy geared at holding the U.S. president, his administration and members of Congress accountable for the actions they take that impact climate change. The climate change campaigner will be part of Friends of the Earth’s climate and energy program.
