About

Description of Project:

The Sierra Club has created the Mass. Local Climate Leadership Project in order to educate and empower local (municipal) elected officials to take action in their own communities and on Beacon Hill, to protect our air, our water, and our lands. Protecting the environment means protecting communities, and safeguarding public health. This initiative will provide training and guidance to local elected officials about what more they can do. From implementing community choice energy, to divesting from fossil fuels, to setting aggressive 100% renewable energy mandates, local officials can give the people what they want: clean energy, climate justice, and a livable planet.

Description of Responsibilities:

  • Research and track information local elected leaders, local elections in various cities/towns
  • Contact municipal offices with timely requests (attend an event, sign a letter, etc.)
  • Attend meetings with Sierra Club staff, other volunteers, and municipal officials
  • Help prepare organize and attend climate leadership summits to further the project goal
  • Research and write about Sierra Club's municipal priority issues
The majority of work can be done remotely, but this opportunity may require occasionally attending meetings at the Sierra Club's Boston office.
