The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has a full-time opportunity available for an Environmental Justice Council Policy and Program Coordinator (Operations & Policy Analyst 3) in Portland, Oregon.
Please consider joining an innovative team, and work to advance our agency’s mission to protect and improve Oregon’s environmental quality. In recognition that individuals and communities experience unequal protection from environmental pollution, the State of Oregon established the Environmental Justice Council with the mission to ensure equal protection from environmental and health risks and ensure fair treatment and meaningful involvement in decision making of all people, regardless of race, color, national origin, immigration status, income, or other identities with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies that affect the environment in which people live, work, learn, and practice spirituality and culture.
The Environmental Justice Council’s role is to advise and provide an annual report to the Governor on environmental justice (EJ) issues; advise natural resource agencies on EJ issues, including community concerns and public participation processes; identify, in cooperation with natural resource agencies, communities with EJ concerns, and meet with these communities to make recommendations to the Governor for response; define EJ issues across Oregon; and upon the request of a natural resource agency, provide consultation and review of natural resource agency’s proposed administrative rules under ORS 183.333.
What you will do!
You will have a direct impact on the lives of people in Oregon experiencing inequities, including communities of color, people with disabilities, and other historically marginalized communities. You will provide policy research, development, and coordination on environmental justice issues; provide project management and high level executive support to the Oregon Environmental Justice Council (EJC), a 13-member statewide council responsible for advising the Governor and natural resource agencies on environmental justice issues and for developing a state-specific environmental justice mapping tool. You will convene and support EJC meetings and events, including developing agendas, coordinating communications, facilitating meetings, drafting reports and analyses, preparing materials for meetings, and maintaining council records. You will lead the development and implementation of the EJC workplan, which includes the development of an Oregon-specific environmental justice mapping tool. You will work with Council members to develop and conduct an inclusive community engagement process. In addition, you will serve as the primary point of contact for inquiries from the public, legislators, and state agencies on issues related to environmental justice and the work of the EJC.
The person hired into this position is an employee of Oregon DEQ; however, your work will support the Council and not the internal or DEQ-specific EJ programs and activities.
