Save the Wild U.P. seeks to hire Regional Organizer

MARQUETTE -- Save the Wild U.P. (SWUP), a dynamic grassroots group based in Marquette, seeks to hire a Regional Organizer to increase their advocacy work protecting the Upper Peninsula’s unique culture, environment, and communities from the hazards of sulfide mining.

As Regional Organizer, the ideal candidate will join SWUP in educating the public on the hazards of sulfide mining -- and in engaging more people in the work of demonstrating how sustainable economies, our unique culture, and our environment are all linked together.

SWUP is a nonpartisan organization that reaches out to people across the peninsula to communicate the region's need to move beyond a dependence on mining for the good of our economies and communities. Activities as Regional Organizer include training activists to speak out at permit hearings, writing email blasts for the group's next free hike, scheduling volunteers, disseminating evidence-based research and education, and much more.
