Job Status Not Specified
Salary Not Specified



The Climate War Room has an immediate opening for a Press Secretary to execute the team’s earned media strategy and to serve as a spokesperson engaging with state and national reporters. The 2020 presidential election will be a defining moment in the nation’s ability to address the climate crisis. It is critical that the next administration and Congress emerge from the election emboldened to act on climate change.

The Climate War Room will engage in the presidential election using research, earned media, and digital content to spur a national conversation on climate. The team will elevate the threat of climate change and shape the conversation on solutions; put the Trump administration on the defensive for its extreme positions; and rebut attacks from the fossil fuel industry and their allies. It will also ensure that nominees lean into this issue and lay the groundwork for legislative success in 2021 and beyond.

The Climate War Room is an independent project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, League of Conservation Voters, and Sierra Club—three organizations committed to making the urgency of climate change and the Trump administration’s opposition to action critical to the 2020 political conversation. This position is funded through the end of November 2020.
