We’re looking for a leader who will direct our team to achieve more for bicycling in LA than we ever have before.

21st Century Transportation Campaign Director Based in Boston, DC, or Chicago, U.S. Public Interest Research Group
We’re hiring a Transportation Campaign Director to lead our national transportation campaign to advocate against spending so many public dollars on unnecessary highway expansion and to advocate for better public transit, biking and walking infrastructure, and repairing the roads we already have.

Our Field Organizer will work with our people around the country on the transportation campaign, setting them up for campaign tactics or reaching out to the media, public leaders and civic organizations yourself. You will sometimes need to travel — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing.

Transportation Digital Organizer, U.S. Public Interest Research Group, Denver, CO
The Public Interest Network is hiring five digital organizers ready to protect the environment and restore our democracy. One of these organizers will be focused on our 21st Century Transportation campaign. This is an entry-level position for recent-college graduates ready to turn their online skills into political action. We’re looking for people who are eager and ready to learn new skills, want to work hard, and who won’t be satisfied until they win.

Communications Manager, Congress for the New Urbanism, Chicago
