The Campaign Director is responsible for developing, overseeing and implementing campaign strategies and tactics on our Value [the] Meal campaign, which is a part of our international Campaign Challenging the Corporate Abuse of Food. The Campaign Director mobilizes and expands the base of individual members and activists through in-person, phone, mail and email communication; recruits new experts and thought leaders; builds and maintains alliances with organizations and institutions; organizes actions and events; supervises organizing staff; and serves as a campaign spokesperson, while working in a creative and enthusiastic office atmosphere.
For more than 30 years, Corporate Accountability International has successfully challenged corporations like GE, Nestlé, and Philip Morris to halt abusive practices that threaten public health, the environment and our democracy. Today, the organization leads campaigns that challenge dangerous practices of some of the world’s most powerful industries. Think Outside the Bottle exposes the truth behind bottled water marketing and defends the human right to water in the face of increasing corporate control. Value [the] Meal challenges the fast food industry to stop driving an epidemic of diet-related disease, and our campaign Challenging Big Tobacco is blocking industry interference in health policies that protect our kids.
