Job Description:

We're currently fighting for affordable drinking water in the state. Over the last 40 years, water rates in Michigan have nearly doubled when adjusted for inflation. According to current estimates, one in ten Michigan families struggle with unaffordable water bills. Michigan is surrounded by 20% of the world’s fresh surface water, so it is unacceptable that families here can’t afford the water coming from their taps. At Clean Water Action, we believe water is a human right, not a commodity to be bought and sold and not a luxury for those fortunate enough to be able to afford it. So we're working to pass a law that would limit what can be charged for water, ensuring that all families have access to clean water in their homes.

For 51 years Clean Water Action has succeeded in winning some of the nation's most important environmental protections through grassroots organizing, expert policy research and political advocacy focused on holding elected officials accountable to the public. As part of our staff, you would organize communities around these vital issues. Responsibilities include one-on-one communication, fundraising, dispersing information, volunteer recruitment, generation of letters to lawmakers, and good record keeping.
