Support visiting activists from China and Kenya

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: International Rivers

On Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 1pm at Fort Mason in San Francisco, International Rivers will bring together two generations of courageous and visionary activists from different corners of the world: Dai Qing (China) and Ikal Angelei (Kenya). These remarkable women will appear together on a rare visit to San Francisco for the event, The New Great Walls: Stories of China’s Dams from Three Gorges to the Horn of Africa.

Volunteer roles:

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about protecting rivers and rights to assist us at this event and at a two-day symposium at UC Berkeley preceding this event, entitled "After Three Gorges Dam, What Have We Learned?" (April 14-15).

Roles include:

- Videography on April 15

- Interpretation (Chinese to English) on April 13 or 14

- Event set up/clean up on April 13, 14, or 15

Each volunteer shift should be around 2-3 hours. Admission to either of these events will be free.
