About

The Corner Community Center and the Freelancers Union are seeking workshop co-leaders for Baltimore SPARK (the local chapter of the Freelancers Union). Co-leaders help to develop and deliver content and facilitate discussions at SPARK’s 1 st Wednesdays meetings at the Impact Hub (10 E. North Avenue, Baltimore, MD), 6:30 - 8:00 pm. The Freelancers Union provides a curriculum for co-leaders to use, which can be edited to make it more relevant for Baltimore attendees.

About the Freelancers' Union

Freelancers Union is the largest and fast-growing organization representing the 57 million independent workers across the country. We give our 350,000+ members a powerful voice through policy advocacy, benefits, and community.

Membership is free and open to freelancers of all kinds, from graphic designers to contractors to entrepreneurs to moonlighters. Freelancers Union offers:

      • Benefits such as health, dental, term life, disability, and liability insurance

      • Community, including SPARK, local freelance hubs in nearly 25 major cities

      • Advocacy for policy change, such as the annual Freelancing in America survey and the Freelance Isn’t Free campaign

      • Resources, including the #1 blog for freelancers

Freelancers Union was founded by Sara Horowitz in 1995. In 2008, we launched Freelancers Insurance Company, the first portable benefits model for freelancers, providing independent workers with high-quality, affordable, and portable health insurance. The union’s National Benefits Platform, launched in 2014, helps freelancers across America access benefits, including retirement, life, liability, dental and disability insurance.

Since its founding, Freelancers Union has fought for and won protections for freelance workers, including Unincorporated Business Tax reform and successfully advocating for new models for health care. In 2016, Freelancers Union led a victorious campaign to enact first-of-its kind legislation in New York City giving freelancers unprecedented protections from nonpayment.
