The Sierra Club, the nation's largest and most effective grassroots environmental organization, seeks a Chicago-based communications strategist for our ground-breaking, history-making Beyond Coal campaign. 

This key Associate Press Secretary position helps guide regional media strategy across the Midwest for the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign.

In addition to shaping messaging, strategy and tactics, this person will maintain key media relationships, pitch and promote stories for the campaign, create paid-media plans, and provide on-the-record comments for news outlets.
