Leaders Igniting Transformation is Hiring an Organizing Director
Milwaukee Water Commons is Hiring a Water City Program Manager and a Water City Program Coordinator
Join Our Team!
Milwaukee Water Commons is a project of the Milwaukee Environmental Consortium and has launched a vision of Milwaukee as a model Water City where we all have a stake in the health of our waters, sharing in their stewardship and their benefits. The Water City Agenda 3.0, launched in 2016, has six initiatives that make up this vision. This position activates one of those initiative areas- Green Infrastructure. In addition, the Water City Program Manager will support an environmental justice approach to improving water infrastructure in Milwaukee. The benefits of clean abundant water should be equitably shared across our community and updating our infrastructure is an opportunity to ensure safe water, climate resilience and good family-sustaining jobs.
Milwaukee Water Commons is partnering with American Rivers to build the Water City Agenda 3.0 and improve water infrastructure in Milwaukee. American Rivers is a national nonprofit dedicated to the protection and restoration of America’s Rivers and the conservation of clean water for both people and nature. American Rivers is supporting the Water City Agenda through their national Community Water Project initiative, which is focused on working with local partners in different cities to coordinate stakeholders to find and implement integrated water management (IWM) approaches that achieve improved water quality outcomes for both rivers and the communities that depend on them.
The partnership between the Milwaukee Water Commons and American Rivers is intended to leverage the strengths and networks of both organizations to provide guidance, technical expertise, and tools to empower community stakeholders to integrate and coordinate their multiple water management responsibilities and provide facilitation between different stakeholders to advance the Water City Agenda. Through these efforts, we aim to improve the ecological health of the rivers and streams within the Great Lakes basin and quality of life for local residents.
River Alliance is Hiring a Clear Water Business Director
River Alliance is hiring a director for our Clear Water Businesses Program.

Application deadline is April 20th. Details are here: https://www.wisconsinrivers.or
Incarcerated Women Need Love on Mother’s Day. Period.
Citizen Action and Women’s March Wisconsin stand in solidarity to uplift moms and families affected by our criminal justice system. Currently there are over 1800 women incarcerated in this state as of the end of 2017. Women are being incarcerated more in this state due to factors such as being charged when they fight their domestic partners back, for committing crimes of poverty, and struggling with mental illness and the lack of community resources to be well. It is our goal for Mother’s Day 2018 to provide some community support to uplift women and their families.
Together, we are raising money to help women incarcerated in Wisconsin. We will do that in two ways:
Currently inmates have to pay to be able to call and talk with their loved ones. This is an unfair practice that puts many families in a place where they cannot support their loved ones who are incarcerated because of the cost. Your donation will be going to assist in buying the phones out at our County Jail and House of Corrections to insure that EVERYONE can speak with their family on the day we celebrate Mom’s. It is our belief that being connected with your family and loved ones is ONE of MANY ways that help women, and their families, thrive.
We all know how difficult our time of the month can be, but imagine if you are incarcerated and dealing with your time of the month. You might not have access to what you need due to the high cost of commissary. As a woman, it is our RIGHT to have access to the products we need to take care of our health and hygiene. And the incarceral system that is run mostly by men, doesn’t understand what that means. Because of your donation, these women will be able to purchase commissary items, in both the house of corrections and the jail, that are better for their bodies.
So let’s help women, on this day that we celebrate moms, have access to choices instead of being forced to use something that may not work for them. And let’s also help them connect to their families, without adding to their debt. Please donate today!
For Our Future is Hiring Lead Organizers and Digital Organizers
For Our Future is a federally registered “independent expenditure” political action committee that aims to win elections and regain political power. FOFAF is a non-profit “social welfare” organization that aims to advance a progressive legislative and policy agenda. Together they work to build permanent progressive power by engaging and mobilizing people and community-based organizations on issues. FOF/FOFAF were founded in 2016 by a coalition of groups on the cutting edge of political action, including NextGen America, labor unions representing a cross-section of working families, and allied progressive organizations. In 2016, we invested $60 million toward building the foundation and continued our efforts organizing and engaging communities in 2017. FOF and FOFAF plan to expand and continue their unique and now-proven model to build infrastructure and power for progressive issues and candidates in 2018 and 2020. For Our Future is on the ground, with infrastructure and staff already working in Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or veteran status. FOF offers a competitive salary and benefits package consistent with experience and expertise.
