We are Friends of the Earth and we are looking for a Digital Advocacy Communication Coordinator to expand our organization’s capacity and ability to direct compelling campaigns and engage our membership through online advocacy and other digital engagement tools. You will work in collaboration with campaign teams to produce compelling, engaging content for Friends of the Earth’s 1.6 million+ email subscribers.

Our Digital Advocacy Communications Coordinator position is located in our Washington DC Headquarters and we invite you to apply.
Who We Are
First of all, you need to know more about us. Friends of the Earth is working for a healthier and more just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Our mission is to change the perception of the public, media and policy makers – and effect policy change – with impactful, well-reasoned policy analysis and advocacy campaigns that protect people and the planet. This hard-hitting advocacy has been the key to our successful campaigns over our four-plus decades in operation. Our programs address a wide range of domestic and international issues as they relate to the environment, including but not limited to: climate and energy, food and agriculture, oceans and water, economic policy and democracy reform.

What Else You Should Know
We are a culture of can-do people, working in open spaces, regularly supporting each other. You will be working out of our Headquarters in Washington, DC, which is a highly collaborative environment.
Your salary will be competitive for the role and market and you will find our benefits to be generous – organization-sponsored medical/dental/vision care, generous paid time off, contribution to retirement, flexible spending accounts, commuter benefits, paid maternity/paternity leave and more.
We are an equal opportunity employer who encourages applications from women, people of color and other members of underrepresented groups who will contribute to the diversity of its staff. Also, please note that references will be requested during the screening process and we will ask final candidates to tackle some exercises that directly relate to the job description.
