Job Openings at CLCV

We’re looking for passionate, creative individuals who want to be a part of a small, dynamic team that is focused on innovative, sustainable, and equitable solutions to address our climate crisis.

Open Positions:

LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS INTERN

We believe this moment requires transformative change.

The climate crisis is here. And Black, Indigenous and people of color have been bearing the burden of our pollution-based economy for generations. We have the solutions to stop climate change, but we lack the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s needed.

California League of Conservation Voters exists (CLCV) to build the political will and power to solve the climate crisis, use climate action to advance justice, and create a global roadmap. To protect our water, land, air, and our most vulnerable communities, we organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change.

Our vision is to build resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and create a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all.

CLCV Education Fund, CLCV’s 501(c)3 sister organization, protects California’s natural resources and improves the health of our communities. For more information, please visit www.clcvedfund.org.

CLCV’s PACs invest in bold, pro-environmental candidates running for statewide and federal offices. We look for diverse candidates who come from communities most impacted by the climate crisis and help them win and we invest resources in defeating candidates that are groomed by the oil-industry to push for environmentally harmful policies.

Internship Description

The Legislative Affairs Intern will support the Legislative work of CLCV. This position will work with the Legislative Affairs Manager and the Legislative Affairs Associate to advocate for CLCV’s priority bills in the California Legislature, which include environmental, environmental justice, climate, and democracy legislation.

This position will also assist in the organization and management of the Green California network, which is a program administered by the California League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (CLCVEF), and is a robust network of about 100 environmental, social justice, and public health organizations mobilizing for an aggressive environmental and environmental justice agenda for clean air and water, natural resources, and public health protection.

The ideal candidate is someone who has strong writing skills, has an eagerness to learn about environmental and environmental justice policies, works well in a team, and either has experience or is interested in working with and organizing a large network of environmental organizations.
