Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. We emphasize a respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. With 612 local chapters in congressional districts around the United States, we empower everyday citizens with the tools and resources to inspire their elected representatives, local media, and community to build the political will for the climate solutions we all need.
CCL’s Boston chapter is looking for a volunteer Social Media Manager to help manage and grow our existing Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Through social media, we hope to:
inform our current members about local climate action
attract new members
develop relationships with local media, business owners, and community leaders
An existing Social Media working group within the chapter meets on a monthly basis and is available to provide guidance to the Social Media Manager on these objectives.
Manage accounts and posts on a day-to-day basis
Attend 1-hour long monthly Social Media meetings and CCL Boston Chapter meetings
Engage with followers through likes, comments, shares, etc.
Maintain a friendly, professional, non-partisan tone on all posts and comments
The ideal Social Media Manager is someone who believes in our mission and is familiar with (and enjoys using) Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We are looking for a self-directed person who is able to commit 2-4 hours per week. Any prior experience with social media management, Canva, or other graphic design is highly appreciated but not required. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to gain demonstrable social media experience and/or contribute to meaningful climate advocacy work at a national nonprofit!
This volunteer position is fully remote, although we are looking for someone in the Boston area.
Take Action to Solve the Climate Crisis: Dr. James Hansen, climate scientist: "Most impressive is the work of the Citizens' Climate Lobby, a relatively new, fastgrowing, nonpartisan, nonprofit group with [250+] chapters across the United States and Canada. If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group." Citizens' Climate Lobby is committed to two purposes: (1) to create the political will for a stable and sustainable climate and (2) to empower individuals to have a breakthrough in exercising their personal and political power.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of Carbon Fee and Dividend legislation (H.R.763) we train and support volunteers to engage elected officials, the media and the public. During the global Covid-19 pandemic, in-person meetings are on pause but there are many ways to train and volunteer virtually. We welcome anyone who is serious about solving climate change as a volunteer. And we work with members of Congress across the political spectrum to find common ground on climate change solutions.
We'll work with your schedule.
