The Social Justice Action Center is looking for volunteers.
There are five teams that are currently looking for new members. Teams include: publicity, maintenance, fundraising, ambassadors, and events.
Publicity — Develop a newsletter and/or blog to update community members about actions, trainings, thoughts; connect with users of the space to learn about upcoming events that could use promotion; enhance connections with local media and listing services; manage/promote on facebook and other social media sites
Maintenance — Respond to repair requests, such as leaky faucets, lightbulbs, gutters, broken windows, sidewalk cleanup, etc; bigger picture maintenance/building care such as planning for investigating the foundation issue, the reroofing, maybe the mural on the outside of the building, improving insulation, etc.; research and coordinate with professionals in getting quotes, etc.
Fundraising — Plan and coordinate fundraising events; research and start grassroots fundraising campaigns; develop fundraising materials (photos, brochures, compelling stories, etc.)
Ambassadors — Attend a training in the goals and function of SJAC and then take that information to other groups and communities; coordinate with outside groups to make a presentation at a meeting and answer question about how that group might make use of and support SJAC
Events — Develop a 2x/month event series (hopefully beginning in January!); The first meeting of the month would be general political education/indirect training, usually inviting a group to come in and share about their work. The second meeting would be a specific skill share/direct training (know your rights, facilitation training, etc); team will be coordinating all aspects of event programming, including scheduling events, organizing event details, and marketing events.
