CEJA is looking for a collaborative leader to manage one of our core program areas, the Energy Equity program.

Position Overview

CEJA’s Energy Equity Program works to ensure that California’s energy policies protect and benefit low-income communities and communities of color, while effectively advancing the transition to 100% renewable energy.

Policy Analysis and Advocacy:

  • Advocate in the legislature for our energy policy positions, in coordination with CEJA’s Policy Manager and CEJA leadership.
  • Oversee energy regulatory advocacy and work with technical support to represent CEJA at the California Energy Commission, the California Public Utilities Commission, and other regulatory agencies.
  • Participate in proceedings, attend hearings and testify on behalf of CEJA; analyze proceeding and policy documents, and draft comment letters on behalf of CEJA.
  • Lead advocacy to improve and deepen analysis around energy policies in California and to ensure equitable, renewable energy policies.
  • Together with Policy Manager and CEJA leadership, develop political strategies to move our issues in statewide policy.
  • Together with CEJA leadership, help manage and convene energy strategy spaces involving ally organizations to generate more shared, coordinated energy equity policy positions and strategies.
