The 360 Group is thrilled to announce that Erik Olvera will be the next Senior Advocacy Communications Director for Earthjustice, the nation’s premier environmental law organization, after an extensive national search. Erik will lead the development and implementation of strategic communications efforts aimed at engaging multiple audiences (media, policy leaders, citizen leaders, donors) on Earthjustice’s highest-priority issues.
Erik brings more than 20 years of experience in high-stakes communications and public relations to this role, most recently as the chief communications and public relations strategist for a national social justice law firm. An award-winning journalist, he has been the lead communications and public relations architect behind some of the nation’s highest profile legal issues including the U.S. Supreme Court marriage victory. His experience spans the full spectrum of advocacy, with an emphasis on delivering top-notch campaigns that shape public discourse. In 2015 alone, he developed more than 80 national campaigns that resulted in 550,000-plus news hits—reaching an estimated 350 million people. Based on his diverse background, unique skillset and passion for advocacy, we are excited about Erik as an exceptional addition to the leadership team at Earthjustice.
