The Organizer is a dynamic, goal-oriented professional within the Organizing Department that works to strengthen and amplify the voice of Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates through capacity-building, advocacy, communications, and fundraising. The Organizer reports directly to the Organizing Director and will work to support Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to ensure that they are the most effective, best, and brightest water advocates.
The Organizer is responsible for ensuring the needs of Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates in Latin America are met, uniting them as a powerful force, and organizing their collective action. As a representative for Waterkeepers Organizations and Affiliates, the Organizer coordinates and promotes the work of Waterkeeper Alliance’s grassroots advocates. The Organizer also will work with the Advocacy Department, and Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to integrate Waterkeeper Alliance’s three campaigns into watersheds and communities throughout the world. Additionally, the Organizer will provide opportunities for our Waterkeeper Organizations and Affiliates to amplify local struggles against polluting agriculture, damaging fossil fuel development and other threats to clean water by connecting them to our broader campaigns. The Organizer will work to implement the Strike Force/Rapid Response team that both supports Waterkeepers in a time of crisis, and addresses critical water issues in communities that do not yet have a dedicated Waterkeeper.
Waterkeeper Alliance is a global environmental movement uniting more than 300 Waterkeeper organizations around the world and focusing citizen action on the issues that affect our waterways, from pollution to climate change. Waterkeepers patrol more than 3.7 million square miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.
