Green America is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a just and sustainable society by harnessing economic power for positive change. Our unique approach involves working with consumers, investors and businesses. Our workplace reflects our goal of creating a more cooperative, environmentally sound economy. We have a participatory decision-making process, which aims to build consensus within the departments and teams.
This position is within Green America’s Corporate Responsibility Division, which works to promote greater social and environmental responsibility with larger corporations. The Division works in four main issue areas, with ongoing campaigns focused on food, energy, finance, and labor.
The Food Campaign Manager will be in charge of Green America’s Food Campaigns, which seek to educate the public about problems with the increasing industrialization of our food systems and GMOs, the importance of local and organic foods, and the need for all Americans to take action to take back our food supply to protect the health of people and the planet. A major part of the position will be directing GMO Inside (www.gmoinside.org), a thriving campaign that educates Americans about GMO foods, better alternatives, and how to take action. In the last two years we’ve had success targeting General Mills, Hershey, Chobani, Abbott Labs (Similac), and other with food manufacturers and getting them to remove GMOs from products. Current campaign targets include Starbucks, Sabra (Pepsi), and Dean Foods, with others under development.
