Campaign Description: LAANE is currently seeking a full-time Policy Analyst for our Repower LA
campaign. RePower LA is an equity-jobs coalition proposing solutions to put Angelenos to work in good
green jobs and turn the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) into a greener, more
modern utility. Since 2011, we have won programs and policies at LADWP to ensure that our utility’s
investment in updating infrastructure and clean energy leads to the creation of good union jobs and that
low-income communities of color benefit from energy efficiency programs that save money on utility bills.
Position Responsibilities: Under the supervision of the Campaign Director, the Policy Analyst will
contribute to campaign goals through research into varied areas related to equity and green jobs at
LADWP, potentially including: public employment and the civil service process; technological aspects of
water and power delivery; creating new pathways to employment for low-income communities of color.
The Policy Analyst will create research memos, reports, and fact sheets that inform campaign strategy,
using a combination of government and union data sources, interviews, and public documents. They will
represent Repower LA at various coalitions, including LATCC, SB535, and Energy Efficiency for All. The
Policy Analyst will connect policy research work with Repower LA’s organizing and communications staff.
