The Public Interest Network

Our mission is to tackle some of the big questions facing our country. How do we make sure the next generation has clean air, clean water and a livable climate? How do we change our energy and transportation systems to meet the needs of today, not the last century? How do we grow our food in ways that leave both people and our environment healthier?

Our country needs smart solutions to these problems, and our researchers and advocates have come up with dozens of them. But having good ideas isn’t enough. We have to find ways to cut through all the noise in today’s politics and win over decision-makers, opinion leaders and the public. 

Our network operates more than 15 organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to change. We’re transpartisan. We value dialogue over polarization. We invest in people and strategies that deliver results, including advocacy, lobbying, campaigning, litigation, policy research and grassroots organizing.

COMMUNITY ACTION WORKS HIRING FOR COMMUNITY ORGANIZER POSITIONS in MASSACHUSETTS and CONNECTICUT “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead At Community Action Works (formerly known as Toxics Action Center), we believe that environmental threats are big, but the power of well-organized community groups is bigger. That’s why we work side by side with everyday people to confront those who are polluting and harming the health of our communities. We partner with the people who are most impacted by environmental problems, especially Black, Indigenous, communities of color and poor communities, training them with the know-how anyone would need to make change in their own backyard. Because when neighbors know how to make change, they can build the power to transform our world. To be the best organizers we can be, we’re diving deep into what it means to undo racism and...

U.S. PIRG Zero Waste Campaign Associate The Zero Waste team with U.S. PIRG is seeking a Campaign Associate to help lead our Beyond Plastics campaign. Nothing we use for a few minutes should threaten our health and pollute our future for hundreds of years. Every day, people throw away tons of plastic “stuff” — cups, plates, bags, containers, forks, knives, straws, spoons and more. All of this waste not only clogs our landfills, trashes our parks, and litters our streets, but it also washes into our rivers and oceans, where it can harm wildlife. It’s time to move beyond single-use plastic, by getting rid of the most harmful waste, and stopping the use of things we truly don’t need. U.S. PIRG is calling on our decision makers to lead us toward a zero waste future by passing a statewide ban on polystyrene (commonly known as styrofoam) take-out containers and single-use plastic bags.   Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy...

Wisconsin PIRG Transportation Campaign Associate Wisconsin PIRG is seeking a Campaign Associate to help lead our Transform Transportation campaign. Each year, pollution from cars, trucks and other vehicles cuts short an estimated 58,000 lives, and increases the risk of lung cancer, stroke and heart disease. Cars are much safer than they used to be. But motor vehicle crashes each year still kill an estimated 40,000 Americans and seriously injure 4.5 million. And, in a conclusion that should shock nobody, one study found the morning commute to be the least favorite part of the day for many Americans. Transportation is also now America’s number one source of carbon pollution, with greenhouse emissions from cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles surpassing every other source. That’s why we’re launching Transform Transportation here in Wisconsin to reduce the need to drive, electrify buses and electrify cars — so the easiest, cheapest and most pleasant ways to...

BECOME A DIGITAL ASSOCIATE WITH ENVIRONMENT AMERICA The damage we're doing to the earth is both unsustainable and infuriating. Climate change is speeding up. Plastic pollution is piling up. There's even evidence that global deforestation is spreading diseases like COVID-19. But solutions to these problems are all around us, practically begging us to adopt them: solar and wind power, electric cars and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, sustainable alternatives to harmful single-use plastics, more protections for wild places and wildlife, and on and on. Environment America’s mission — the thing that drives everything we do — is to transform our ideas and imaginations into change that makes our world a greener and healthier place. Imagine using your sharp writing skills to protect a national forest from logging. Imagine creating unique, engaging digital content to help a clean energy bill make it over the finish line.

Join the Environment Texas Conservation team, led by state director Luke Metzger, with our current campaign to expand protected parkland in Texas. From camping under the stars at Big Bend Ranch to exploring the cypress swamps of Caddo Lake, our parks make life better here in Texas. Our parks protect the clean water we depend on and provide a home for some of Texas’ most wondrous wildlife, like the black bear and the leatherback sea turtle. But unfortunately our parks and open spaces face chronic underfunding which threatens their very existence. Every hour, almost 20 acres of open space are destroyed in Texas to make way for new strip malls and subdivisions. That is why Environment Texas has launched the Million Acre Parks Project — a campaign that seeks to better protect the beauty, character, and heritage of the Lone Star State by adding one million additional acres of parkland for us all to enjoy. We are seeking a Campaign Associate who will spearhead this campaign...
