Environmental Field Organizer – Texas Coastal Bend

Texas Campaign for the Environment (TCE) has been fighting for every Texan’s right to clean land, clean air, and clean water since 1991. Our purpose is to organize communities across the state to stand up to big polluters, to keep the pressure on our elected officials to do everything in their power to protect the people they serve, and to keep our homes and livelihoods safe and healthy for the present day as well as the generations to come. 

  • We win campaigns and build political power by engaging community members year round with door-to-door, face-to-face, grassroots organizing. Knocking on doors for the last thirty years in Texas’ 181 legislative districts has brought about monumental changes in our state and local environmental policies, and we’ve held polluters accountable for their actions! TCE has pioneered a community-based structure of organizing. 

It is the policy of TCE to provide equal employment opportunity (EEO) to all persons regardless of age, color, national origin, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, race, religion, creed, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, genetic information, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law. In addition, TCE will provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities.
