About the Role

The Center for Biological Diversity seeks a dynamic individual to advocate for effective food and agriculture policy and legislation that prioritizes human health, equity and the environment above the interests of agribusinesses, particularly industrial meat and dairy production. This includes policy related to nutrition and dietary patterns, agricultural production, climate-friendly food systems, opposing false solutions, shifting direct and indirect subsidies, corporate accountability and food justice. The policy specialist will work individually, in collaboration with other Center staff and in coalitions to build relationships with policymakers; submit formal administrative petitions and comments; analyze and respond to legislation; and develop and implement policy actions to transform the food system toward just, healthy and sustainable plant-forward diets and agroecological production.

About the Organisation

The Center for Biological Diversity is a nonprofit membership organization known for its work protecting endangered species through legal action, scientific petitions, creative media and grassroots activism.
