Volunteer with Us
We are currently in building mode! We are building an organizational structure so we can keep convening a community of people working towards equality, social justice and human rights.
We have limited opportunities right now in three areas: one-time events, projects, or committees. As we grow we will continue to send out volunteer opportunities!
We are currently filling the following positions:
Join the Women’s March of Minnesota Pink Hat Brigade! Grab your hat, your signs, your WMM gear, and your resistance buttons and join us for other Marches, events, and actions in the community. Sign up below to be notified of opportunities to join up with other WMM Marchers, and continue to get involved in the movement.
Call to Action Legislative Volunteer (3 volunteers needed) WMM is seeking volunteers to be part of a Metro-Wide Call to Action Team about State Legislation. This Team tracks State Legislation, and then puts together Calls to Action that are available to any groups who want them. WMM is responsible to follow up and monitor bills that have been voted on. This need is URGENT as there are only about 6 more weeks of this session.
This position involves getting familiar with the legislative process, and making a few calls during the day, looking things up on line to get clear on the status of the bills and then putting the information into a huge shared spreadsheet. Important work but requires an interest to learning about this world. About 3 hours a week, though may take a bit of time at the beginning to work out the system.
You would be part of a larger partnership on behalf of WMM and grow your advocacy skills and contacts! This is a larger partnership with Stand Up Minnesota, Stand Up Minnesota – Twin Cities, Our Revolution, and Indivisilble Minnesota Local.
Writing Legislative Calls to Action (2 Opportunities)
This position will work with the Legislative Team to monitor bills that are being discussed, and send out Calls to Action to our mailing list and social media followers.
We monitor bills in two online places, and you would need to be a bit of a stickler for detail, and follow some complicated legislative language. This may take up to 4 hours a week, maybe more as you go through the learning curve.
You would work closely with the WMM Political Action Team, and see how your calls help get the information needed to become active by contacting their reps or going down to hearings!
Legislative Action your Interest? (2 opportunities)
Help conceive of and put together a couple of pages for the Legislative Action part of a website – info only. This will include information on how to best contact your reps, how to testify at a hearing, background information on issues in particular bills – workers’ rights, reproductive rights etc., etc.; tools for activism; resources – podcasts, radio shows, films etc., etc. I am looking for 1 or 2 people to do this. About 4 hours a week – though may be more to begin with. All negotiable.
Communications and Legislative Action (2 Opportunities)
Help conceive of and put together our Weekly Action List that will get sent out as part of a Weekly Newsletter to our base every week. This will be a mixture of Calls to Action as well as information on issues, opportunities for people to learn more, etc.
Inspire people to get into action for the long haul! About 4 hours a week.
Political Action Events and Opportunities (1 Opportunity)
Help conceive of and plan campaigns like voter registration, getting people in GOP districts to contact their reps, supporting change in Greater Minnesota through legislative Calls to Action. About 4 hours a week.
