Friends of the Earth is seeking a qualified professional for a short-term contract to work closely with our International Forests Program, allied NGOs, and a New York-based political consulting firm to advance a legislative proposal to reform New York State’s public procurement to exclude goods and services that drive tropical deforestation and associated human rights abuses. The focus of this work is on New York City and surrounding communities and is to take place during the New York legislative session, which runs through mid-June 2023.
