      Hello Chapter Global Warming

      I have attached and enclosed
      below a job announcement for a new position for an organizer of our Sierra Club
      Loma Prieta Chapter’s Building Climate-Friendly Communities Campaign. This
      position will allow our Cool Cities Campaign to expand and become part of a
      broader effort funded by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to reduce vehicle
      miles traveled in our area―the largest single contributor to global warming
      emissions in our area.

      Please forward to anyone you
      think might be qualified and interested in applying for this position.

      The Sierra Club, Loma Prieta Chapter


      Grassroots Organizer for our Building Climate Friendly
      Communities Project

      Santa Clara , San Mateo and San Benito Counties

      Loma Prieta Chapter

      The Loma Prieta Chapter is a leader in responding to climate
      change through our Global Warming Campaign, and brings the slogan “think
      global, act local” to life in the Silicon Valley Region. Building on our highly
      successful Cool Cities campaign, Building Climate Friendly Communities focuses
      on reducing greenhouse gas emissions through smart land use planning. We are
      part of a national effort to create vibrant neighborhoods and great communities
      through transit-oriented-development (TOD). TOD’s are complete neighborhoods,
      or have plans to become a complete neighborhood. Focused on the half-mile area
      surrounding a transit station, TODs are integrated with shops and services as
      well as a highly quality walking environment that allows for healthier and more
      active lifestyles.

      We are seeking an experienced community organizer to lead our
      Building Climate Friendly Communities campaign to the next level. The organizer
      will work closely with existing Cool City teams and Chapter conservation issue
      committees, build new teams in priority cities, and coordinate with community
      members and groups to create strong support for smart growth through transit
      oriented development projects. As part of a regional coalition of organizations
      focused on smart growth, housing, transit and open space policy the organizer
      will ensure the Sierra Club’s significant contribution to developing
      sustainable land use decision making at the local level.

      The Sierra Club offers a friendly, fast-paced work environment
      with highly motivated volunteers focused on making positive change in the
      world. We plan for this to be a multi-year project, however at this time we
      only have guaranteed funding for one year. Funding for additional years is a
      top chapter priority.
