Riverside Organizing is hiring field organizers for a large-scale volunteer mobilization and issue advocacy campaign it is conducting on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters (LCV). Riverside Organizing field organizers recruit and train volunteer teams who work with local leaders, organizations, and diverse communities.

Riverside Organizing field organizers will join an already powerful network of volunteers and activists to execute grassroots advocacy and accountability campaigns and hold a wide range of events and trainings to amplify public support for equitable and just climate policies and solutions.

*The Project*

The League of Conservation Voters serves as the political voice of the state's conservation community, working to make sure Nevada elected officials recognize that our natural heritage is an environmental and economic treasure for all.

Nevada LCV elects conservation leaders to statewide office and strives for a conservation majority in state government. We secure good public policies on the state level and hold public officials accountable for their positions on environmental issues.

Together, they have developed a powerful volunteer organizing structure engaging thousands of volunteers to make phone calls, canvass, attend events and advocate on behalf of climate action. Nevada LCV's priority is to ensure our efforts to protect and advocate for the environment are rooted in a deep understanding of racial, social and environmental justice. NV LCV prioritizes racial diversity and inclusivity as core values and is committed to creating opportunities for communities of color to participate in the democratic process.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel is strongly discouraged and all Field Organizer duties will be performed remotely. Once safe to do so, the position will be based in Las Vegas, Nevada.
