As traffic pollution now causes more deaths than traffic-related accidents, this campaign also intends to push back and put pressure on the Trump administration’s rollbacks on the Clean Car Standards; a motion that freezes progress and puts our society in reverse and our hardworking families in harm’s way
The intern will report directly to Green For All’s Organizing Director & assist with various tasks including, but not limited to:

About Green For All
Green For All was founded by CNN political commentator and former Obama White House advisor, Van Jones. Van started Green For All in 2007, to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. Today, we do just that - through smart climate and clean energy policies that build green infrastructure, create green jobs, and improve health conditions for low-income communities and communities of color. We use strategic communications, distributed organizing, and partner and influencer engagement, to build public support for the solutions we need most.
We are looking for an intern who has a collection skills/experience/interests in the following areas:
- Community organizing
- Climate change solutions
- Clean transportation
- Basic graphic design
