The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteers will help input data into a collated spreadsheet, assisting Workers Defense Project in building strong, data-centered arguments for workers rights.
At Workers Defense Project, we use data to better understand our membership and volunteer base, as well as to influence government policy towards initiatives that favor the rights of low wage immigrant workers.
As a data entry volunteer, we will add you to a list of volunteers that we will look to for help whenever we need data entry assistance, often for petitions. We will let you know we need the help, and then it is up to you to decide if you have the time; your help will go a long ways towards making a more equitable future for workers.
