Environment America is a federation of state-based environmental advocacy organizations in the United States. The organization researches and advocates for environmental policies through lobbying, litigation, and the mobilization of public support.

 

As an intern, you’ll help us educate and engage citizens on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll help us get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. You’ll learn how to analyze environmental problems, push for smart solutions, and build the public support it takes to win. You’ll work side-by-side with one of our advocates, learning the ropes. And you'll attend briefings and trainings to learn even more about environmental issues and gain organizing skills. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the kind of public support it takes to win.
