Adrienne Esposito, the Executive Director of the Citizen's Campaign for the Environment, says of the life of an activist, "It's a choice. It may not always be glamorous, but your role is to ultimately protect the public and hold the government accountable for its actions.
Esposito co-founded the CCE in 1985, and since, it has grown to six offices located throughout New York and Connecticut. Its focus is on the environment and public health as it relates to environmental issues. According to Esposito, the CCE has tackled issues such as energy planning, water protection, recycling and air quality, among others.
After graduating college, Esposito joined the world of non-profit work via canvassing. As a canvasser, she traveled door-to-door to try to educate the public about environmental issues. Canvassing and interning are the two most common ways through which most people begin their careers in activism.
According to Esposito, the role of a canvasser is to distribute information, petition, fund-raise, and get the public involved in an issue. Working in full-time, paid positions, canvassers are able to work on campaigns directly with the people. They can also create a network of contacts with professionals in the fields with which they are interested. This can lead to other job opportunities.
Students who wish to pursue activism as a career need to be focused, determined and willing to learn. "The amount I learned working here in my first year [with the CCE] was twice as much as I learned in my four years of college," said Esposito. At the same time, it is important to note that financially, activism is not a well-endowed field. "If you want to make a lot of money and live a cushy lifestyle, this is not for you," said Esposito.
Ultimately, activism is a rewarding field, as it gives people the opportunity to fight for what they believe in. Just remember: "This is not a cakewalk," says Esposito.

Citizens Campaign for the Environment Requests Extended Public Comment Period, Additional Hearings.
Farmingdale, NY - The Army Corps of Engineers has released its draft Dredge Material Management Plan (DMMP) and draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) addressing the disposal of dredge materials from the Long Island Sound. Adrienne Esposito, Executive Director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment (CCE), is urging the Army Corps to extend the comment period in order to allow the public and key stakeholders time to sufficiently review the document and offer substantive comments.
"For the last decade, CCE and other stakeholders have worked to ensure the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers protect the Long Island Sound by phasing out the open-water dumping of contaminated dredge spoils. In order to properly review the draft plans and allow for valuable public comment, the comment period should be 90 days and additional hearings should be scheduled in October throughout New York and Connecticut" said Esposito.
The Long Island Sound is a public resource which supports a $17 billion - $36 billion regional economy annually; the residents who rely on this resource deserve the time and opportunity to weigh in on this decision" continued Esposito.
"From a preliminary review of the documents released today, it clearly seems that the plan dramatically fails to meet the agreed-upon goal to move towards environmentally-friendly reuse options and instead allows for the continued status quo of dumping dredge spoils in our Long Island Sound. After investing billions of dollars to restore the waterway, permitting continued dumping of contaminated materials in the Long Island Sound is unacceptable. And so the battle to protect the Sound continues" concluded Esposito.
