The Western Organization of Resource Councils (WORC) is seeking to hire two experienced community organizers to join our staff team. WORC’s regional organizers work with network leaders and staff to plan and execute regional and national campaigns, and provide support to WORC’s member groups. The two regional organizer positions we are hiring for will help lead our work to hold coal, oil and gas companies accountable; create a just transition for fossil-fuel dependent communities; accelerate community-scale renewable energy; and win an agriculture and food system that is fair and just for family farmers, ranchers, workers and eaters.
In addition to these issues, one of the Regional Organizers will work with the Native-led organizations in WORC’s network to support at the regional and national levels their work around Indigenous community priorities that may include Missing and Murdered Indigenous People; health care; voting rights; tribal sovereignty, law and policies; and other issues.
WORC is a regional network of eight grassroots community organizations in seven Western states. WORC is nationally respected for its 42 years of winning campaigns on natural resource, food and farm issues through community organizing, training, leadership development and voter engagement.
