Jobs with Environment New York


Election Jobs

To protect our environment and our families’ health we need leaders at the local level, in Albany and inWashington, DC who will stand up to polluters, who will put environmental values over corporate profits and who are dedicated to conserving the places like the Catskills and the Long Island Sound that make New York so special. This election we are running a grassroots, face to face effort to help elect two such leaders Dan  Maffei for Congress and Barack Obama for President. We are hiring paid canvassers to knock on doors and identify, persuade and mobilize as many citizens and volunteers as we can to help re-elect the President, and send Dan Maffei to Congress.

The stakes are high.  The choices are clear. Learn about how you can join with us to protect the environment and elect pro-environment champs. Apply online through Work for Progress.
