What we do

Ohio Citizen Action is the largest environmental organization statewide. Since 1975, we have been leading the fight for clean air, clean water and consumer rights in Ohio and we’ve grown to become the premier grassroots mobilizing and organizing team in the Midwest.

Ohio Citizen Action organizes and mobilizes people to advocate for public interests. In person, by phone, and online, we engage people in actions that protect public health, improve environmental quality, and benefit consumers. Our campaigns connect Ohioans and build a movement to protect democracy and create a sustainable future.

We’re empowering residents one by one, bringing them news and information where they live or contacting them by phone. We call it “door-to-door democracy” and it works. We’ve made over 8.5 million front porch visits in our years of serving Ohio. With the help and contributions of our members, we have taken on some of the biggest companies in the world - and won

In the past five years, we have stopped multiple consumer-funded coal and nuclear bailout attempts from electric utility companies in all regions of the state, while simultaneously lobbying for and demanding stronger renewable energy and energy efficiency portfolio standards (RPS) statewide.

And there’s still work to do. Our campaigns and their successes rely on passionate individuals who go out to communities, and connect members with these issues - through petition signatures, membership, political actions and education. 

If you’re looking for a rewarding job that will change you as much as it changes the world around us, we need you on our team.
