Friends of the Los Angeles River seeks an experienced and motivated advocate for Los Angeles River restoration policy and advocacy. The Sr. Policy and Advocacy Manager will work with FoLAR’s broad, diverse coalition and internal team to lead FoLAR’s advocacy campaigns for local, state, and federal policy and planning decisions.
Friends of the LA River (FoLAR) was founded in 1986 on the belief that effective advocacy, education, collaboration, and imagination can accomplish great things. We know first-hand that urban ecosystem restoration requires creativity, technical knowledge, and tenacity - but also that our goals, while vast and visionary, are also undeniably attainable. We bring these attitudes and vision to our mission of protecting and restoring the natural and historic heritage of the LA River.
