350PDX is recruiting new board members! And, if you answered yes to any of these questions, that could be you!
We are a grassroots, climate justice organization that engages in direct action and organizing to challenge fossil fuel development. We are part of the Portland Clean Energy Initiative Coalition, and are fighting for an Oregon Green New Deal. We have begun implementing a three year Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Plan, and we are in the midst of 2021-2023 strategic planning.
Our organization is currently in a period of transition. We have a staff collective with 6 staff and 8 board members. There is no Executive Director and operational decisions are made by all staff via a democratic process from all staff.
We are especially looking for folks with skills in financial management and accounting for nonprofits, fundraising, and staff-led collectives, and those with diverse life experiences. We are also seeking those who have experience with JEDI, environmental and climate policy, organizing, and/or legal expertise. Ideally, board members have 10-15 hours a month to commit. In alignment with our desire to remove barriers to board participation, stipends may be available for low-income Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
If you want to learn more, please email Jamie Pang (Jspang.firstname.lastname@example.org) and Anais Tuepker (email@example.com), telling us a little about yourself and why you’re interested to join the board. We’ll ask for your resume and for answers to our board application questions. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with no set deadline right now. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and share with folks who may be interested! We look forward to hearing from you!
