Emerald Cities Collaborative (ECC) is a national Non-profit network of organizations working together to advance a sustainable environment while creating greater ecoNomic opportunities for all. We’re transforming the energy sector, and retrofitting urban infrastructure in a high road way, by creating high wage jobs, and revitalizing the local ecoNomies of our metropolitan regions. We convene multi-sector stakeholders around common goals of ecoNomic, social and environmental equity in eight cities across the United States.
Emerald Cities Oakland is designing, coordinating and managing several initiatives in the East Bay. Our policy work – that targets equity inclusion for low-income communities and communities of color in the expanding green infrastructure- is currently working on Community Choice Aggregation development and implementation. San Francisco has voted for CleanPowerSF, and is currently in the design phase. Alameda County is taking on a year research/planning process to consider the viability of CCA in it 14 cities across the East Bay. Additionally, ECOakland is the lead on a Anchors for Resilient Communities (ARC) Initiative funded by the California Endowment, Kaiser Permanente, Kresge, SF Foundation, and Ca Wellness Foundation. This initiative will mirror the good work of the Evergreen Cooperatives, in Cleveland- where large public anchors (hospitals and universities) target their procurement dollars for small business, or social enterprise development within low-income communities (East Oakland and Richmond).
The Communications and Policy Intern will report to Emerald Cities Oakland Director and is charged with supporting the EC Bay Area staff to execute project development and implementation, policy development, support program operations and enhance capacity. In summary, facilitate community and stakeholder outreach, convene multi-stakeholder discussion, support development and integration of workforce training, and strengthen communication and operations of the local and regional programs.
