BECOME AN ENVIRONMENT AMERICA FELLOW
Environment America’s mission is to transform our ideas and imaginations into change that
makes our world a greener and healthier place.
We build support for clean, renewable energy. In just the past year, we helped convince
California, New Mexico, Washington state and Maine to commit to 100 percent zero-carbon
We campaign against pollution and climate change. We’ve won $250 million in penalties
and actions from ExxonMobil and other polluting companies, and programs to reduce carbon
pollution, from Colorado to Massachusetts.
We protect wildlife and wild places. We won the nation’s first statewide bans on single-use
plastic bags in California and single-use polystyrene foam in Maine.
We do what it takes to turn public opinion and political momentum toward a greener, healthier
world. If that’s what you want to do, visit jobs.EnvironmentAmerica.org.
