Program Coordinator 

Position Description

Position Title: Program Coordinator

Location: Fully Remote

Reports to: Executive Director, Equitable Building Electrification Fund: A Collaboration for Frontline Communities

Status: Full-time, Exempt




Grounded in the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing and Principles for Just Transition, the Equitable Building Electrification Fund: A Collaboration for Frontline Communities (Fund) supports the self-determined priorities of communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis to create livable housing, renewable clean energy and equitable economic opportunity driven by deep democracy. Led by a diverse Governance Assembly of environmental and climate justice leaders, together with funders, the Equitable Building Electrification Fund is a trust-based model of philanthropy where those who know their communities best design and implement equitable solutions to remove fossil fuel energy sources from homes and communities. The impact of this work can be seen in the Fund’s Learning Community Collaboratory (LCC), a shared learning space where members can have conversations about the issues impacting their communities, and because of relationships, strategize solutions that can be successfully implemented.  Critically, long-term success in our work will be demonstrated by a shift in narrative, culture and policy to prevent the build out of gas and other fossil fuels. Policies will be strengthened to prevent a rise in emissions, particularly in environmental justice communities.
