About the job
The Sierra Club’s Clean Transportation for All Campaign works at the local, state, and national levels – using a lens of equity and justice – to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and harmful air pollution from the transportation sector, while focusing on making clean transportation solutions affordable, accessible, and convenient.
The Illinois Chapter works with our powerful base of 14 volunteer-run Groups and over 130,000 members and supporters to pass environmental legislation and advocate for policies that protect our water, air, and land.
This position would work at the intersection of the Clean Transportation for All (CTFA) Campaign and the Illinois Chapter. The Advocate would work in Illinois with staff and volunteers to plan, coordinate and implement strategic campaigns to address harmful air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, which is the largest source of climate pollution in the United States and Illinois. The Advocate ensures that the campaign engages the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club’s members and supporters, and builds powerful partnerships that are oriented toward a shared vision of climate and environmental justice.
The Advocate will collaborate closely with staff in Illinois working towards adoption of 100% clean energy. The position will initially focus on the transportation sector, but it may shift to include related priorities across Sierra Club Illinois’s energy campaigns depending on needs.
