      Summary: The non-profit Bikes Belong Foundation is looking for an
      energetic and dynamic professional with at least 4-5 years proven success
      in a senior advocacy/policy/legislative position to work with the Safe
      Routes to School (SRTS) National Partnership as our Policy Manager. The
      Policy Manager will work on government relations, lobbying, policy
      research and analysis, and report writing to advance the SRTS national
      movement. The SRTS National Partnership is a coalition of more than 300
      organizations. Its mission is to serve a diverse national community of
      organizations that advocates for and promotes the practice of safe
      bicycling and walking to and from schools throughout the United States.

      Background: SRTS is a new federal program designed to make it safe, easy
      and convenient for children grades K-8 to walk and bicycle to schools. Due
      to federal legislation adopted in 2005, State Departments of
      Transportation (in all 50 states and the District of Columbia) now have
      $600 million in funding to make SRTS programs available to local
      communities during the next two years. Congress plans reauthorize the
      federal transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU during 2009, so the SRTSNP is
      starting work in 2008 to build the case for increased funding and improved
      policies for SRTS. We are also working to ensure that the SRTS funding
      allocated in 2005 is spent on good projects, that Congressional members
      become aware of the of the successful SRTS programs in their communities,
      and that we are working to insert SRTS language into other key pieces of
      federal legislation.

      Key Responsibilities: The Policy Manager will report to Deb Hubsmith,
      Director of the SRTS National Partnership. Key responsibilities include:
      * Working with federal policy makers and staff to get SRTS included in
      federal bills such as the reauthorization of SAFETEA-LU, climate change
      legislation, and energy, health and education bills;
      * Ensuring that all states have SRTS Coordinators hired and that grant
      application guidelines are released in all states;
      * Researching and writing policy papers on issues such has how SRTS has
      impacted the built environment, Wellness Councils, and reductions in
      greenhouse gas emissions, as well as how school siting policies, school
      buses, and hazard busing policies affect safety and physical activity;
      * Organizing site visits with Congressional members to showcase successful
      SRTS projects and creating an on-line kit for scheduling site visits;
      * Researching Title 23 requirements for SRTS funding and how various
      states are complying with federal procedures so that we can make
      recommendations to lower the overhead and time required;
      * Working with national organizations to show the links for SRTS to public
      health, environmental concerns, complete streets, and more;
      * Working on high profile state legislation and policy initiatives that
      could provide precedent-setting national implications for SRTS;
      * Helping to develop SRTS State Networks and grassroots advocacy in states
      that are not currently served by our State Network Project;
      * Assisting the Director with fundraising efforts;
      * Communicating with other organizations at national, state and local
      * Scheduling meetings, developing web content, responding to media
      inquiries, producing materials, and executing other tasks, as needed, to
      advance the goals of the SRTSNP; and
      * Attending regular staff meetings via telephone, and working as a team


      * Live in the Washington DC region or be willing to move there in
      September 2008.
      * Successful legislative experience at state and federal levels.
      * Bachelors degree required; masters degree preferred.
      * Knowledge of Safe Routes to School, transportation and health issues.
      * Minimum of 4-5 years proven success in a senior
      advocacy/policy/legislative position.
      * Self motivated, creative, detail-oriented and energetic.
      * Ability to work from home, and to work independently with minimal
      * Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
      * Experience in meeting facilitation.
      * Experience with network/coalition building to create policy changes.
      * Track record of supervising complex projects with multiple stakeholders,

      Progressive States Network is seeking a highly motivated individual to
      advance green jobs and smart growth policies across the nation and help
      build a nationwide network of state legislators and advocates in support
      of these progressive reforms.

      The Policy Agenda: Creating jobs based on clean energy and reshaping the
      urban environment through smart growth policies is a cornerstone of
      progressive policy. Wasteful energy and development policies have created
      an environmentally destructive cycle of urban sprawl, long commutes and
      fragmentation of community life. Rightwing activists have promoted the
      myth that jobs and the environment are incompatible, a divisive strategy
      used to undermine wage standards for workers, undercut
      environmentally-sound planning, and deepen racial and economic segregation
      patterns. On the other hand, a strategic alliance around smart growth and
      green jobs can bring together unions, environmentalists, low-income
      housing activists and civil rights groups in a combined effort to promote
      sustainable economic growth for our communities.

      The goal of this position is to help strengthen those alliances with
      sympathetic state legislators to promote model green jobs and smart growth
      legislation in states across the country. Key policies will include:
      * Encouraging ?green jobs? policies, such as retrofitting buildings for
      energy efficiency, building mass transit and deploying solar and other
      alternative energy sources;
      * Promoting economic and housing developments along established transit
      * Supporting higher-density affordable housing policies in urban and inner
      suburbs to discourage urban sprawl;
      * Developing innovative policies to fight greenhouse gas emissions, such
      as clean car legislation and ?pay by the mile? auto insurance to help
      encourage the shift from autos to alternative transit options.

      The position will be based in our New York City office.

      About Progressive States Network: The Progressive States Network works
      with legislators and community organizations across the country to advance
      legislation at the state level that protects individual freedoms, promotes
      sustainable economic growth, and strengthens America's working families.
      Backed by labor unions, community leaders, environmental groups,
      grassroots organizations such as MoveOn.org, and other individual
      supporters, Progressive States blends analysis and action and is working
      to establish a cohesive network and support system for progressive
      legislators in all 50 states, while building a concerted movement
      dedicated to grassroots social and political change across the nation. See
      www.progressivestates.org for more information.

      Additional Qualifications:
      Skills Needed: This job requires the skills to develop and explain
      policies to legislators, the media and potential allies. The position also
      requires strong organizing skills to build a multi-state legislative
      network where legislators educate each other on both the policy and
      political benefits of supporting green jobs and smart growth. Strong
      writing skills are a must as are strong networking skills. Since our goal
      is to build a multi-issue network of legislators and allied organizations,
      any person in this position must be committed to working as a team with
      other staff at the Progressive States Network.

      Candidates for this position should have three to eight years of relevant
      professional experience. Relevant experience includes (but is not limited
      to) working in political, policy, legal, journalistic, or government
      settings. Advanced degrees, including a JD or masters in related fields,
      may count toward a candidates professional experience.

      How to Apply:
      Salary and benefits for this position are commensurate with the amount of
      relevant professional experience that a candidate has. Opportunities for
      advancement, travel, and additional training are available.

      Please email a compelling cover letter, resume and writing sample showing
      your ability to write about policy issues in a manner accessible to the
      public to:

      New Yorkers can breathe easier, thanks to an innovative outreach campaign
      launched in 2007 by ICF International on behalf of the New York State
      Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). According to the U.S. Environmental
      Protection Agency, the New York metropolitan area (including NYC, Long
      Island and the Hudson Valley) fails to meet federal ambient air quality
      standards for ground-level ozone and particulate matter pollution. To
      improve the air, NYSDOT has committed to reducing vehicle miles traveled
      by 1% through a public outreach campaign. ICF is proud to be supporting
      NYSDOT in this ground-breaking effort to use public relations and
      advertising to effect environmental change.

      Late in 2006 and early 2007, ICF revamped and rebranded NYSDOT?s existing
      Ozone NY program to become Clean Air NY? building a dynamic network of
      more than 3,000 individuals, and more than 4,000 employer and community
      partners committed to improving air quality through carpooling, using mass
      transit, combining errands, and other positive transportation-related

      On the ground, the campaign has been led by ICF?s local Marketing &
      Outreach Manager with help from 3 regional subcontractors/transportation
      management organizations (MetroPool, CommuterLink & LITM) and has gained
      enough momentum to demand a 2nd local position in the NY metro region, to
      help take the project and campaign to the next level.

      ICF is looking to take the Clean Air NY campaign to the next level in 2008
      and needs to expand its team on the ground in New York to do so. The Clean
      Air NY ? Marketing Associate will support the Marketing & Outreach Manager
      in growing the network of businesses, community groups and individuals in
      the program. The program requires frequent follow up with partners, in
      addition to detailed tracking of participation. The Marketing Associate
      will lead the planning & execution of Clean Air NY?s consumer/community
      events and individual outreach campaign, with input from the Marketing &
      Outreach Manager and the team and will require staffing on some weekends
      in the Spring & Summer. Additionally, the Marketing Associate will assist
      in launching a new effort to recruit colleges and universities to a Clean
