Clean Vehicles Program
Union of Concerned Scientists
Our transportation system – the way we move people and goods through a network of cars, trucks, buses, and rail – is old and outdated. And it’s the leading source of pollution in the Northeast. It’s time for an upgrade. Join our campaign in the New England and Mid-Atlantic region to build a modern, clean, accessible, and equitable transportation system that expands access and mobility, cuts climate and health pollution, and strengthens the economy with good jobs.
The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), a leading science-based advocacy organization, seeks a motivated and detail-oriented individual to help plan and implement campaign organizing activities with the Clean Vehicles Program. The Outreach Coordinator will develop and implement online and offline activist and expert engagement activities and build relationships with key partners and allies in ways that complement the work of analytic and policy staff.
