Volunteers in this program serve as the substitute decision maker for the person they are appointed to serve, advocating for the person under guardianship to have to best quality of life possible. Guardianship deals with care including where the person under guardianship lives and healthcare decisions. Conservatorship covers financial decisions and property management. These decisions require a certain level of comfortability with making hard decisions on another person's behalf and should take into account the needs, preferences, and desires of the person under guardianship. This is a chance to build a truly rewarding relationship with someone that needs the legal and personal assistance of an ethical and committed Volunteer Guardian. A criminal history background check and credit history check (for conservators) are required.

  • Graphic design of stickers for metal Unsteal Boxes

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    We need the graphic design of stickers to place on metal boxes. These are called Unsteal Boxes, and the main purpose of the sticker design is to make it as clear as possible that people can repay for any petty theft directly to the store in which the box is displayed. The store owner keeps all the money from each Unsteal Box. It would be nice if people didn't feel judged by the box if they put money in it. People could be repaying on behalf of a stranger's theft, not necessarily their own. Emphasizing this might reduce the stigma of using the Unsteal Box. The boxes are 3" x 3" 3" and we can place stickers on 3 sides of the box facing customers and one more sticker on the front, above the cash slot. Please compare previous review the other designs of different Unsteal boxes created on our website. http://unsteal.org/unsteal- box/

  • An Organized Group of People Can Tackle Some of the World's Biggest Problems. Help People Organize.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Then We Win is a non-profit foundation that is creating an app to organize people to take action together to solve some of the world's biggest problems. What do we mean by that? Here is an example. Imagine a news conglomerate that owns television, radio, and print businesses around the world. This organization uses their business to push their agenda despite the cost to humanity because of the "shareholder value" it creates. Individually, we can get upset at the toll their business model takes on society and individuals in our families, but we cannot change their ways. However, business leaders agree that a well organized and sustained boycott can be more effective than letter writing campaigns, lobbying, or even class action suits in convincing companies to change their ways. And that if 5 percent of consumers boycott a company, it will have a material affect on the company's financies. If 10 percent of consumers participate, the effect on a business is devastating. So where does Then We Win play into that equation? Then We Win organizes people and information to make it easy to act in an organized manner. A big company, a news company in this example, does not exist on an island. It has advertisers, suppliers, distributors, publishers, licensors, writers and television personalities, affiliates, landlords and tenants. In short it has companies and people that rely on them and it relies on companies and people to make their business run. If information on all of these connections are created and a concerted effort is made to inform and boycott those who allow this news company to exist in its current form, even if a small percentage of them stop working with the news company, it would bring the company to a place where they would need to consider the affect of their business model on society at large. If you consider that in other areas, like companies standing in the way of climate change, political parties standing in the way of voting rights, and businesses standing in the way of civil rights, you can get a sense that this model can be used to force change where change is difficult on an individual basis. So what do we need? Developers, Designers, Project Managers, Researchers and Data entry people. We are a non-profit and hours worked may be tax deductible (check with an accountant), qualify for work-study or college credits, qualify as training while on unemployment, or qualify as community service in your area, depending on the specific tasks you are able to perform. We do not currently offer financial compensation. If you are interested, please respond fill out this form so we may learn more about you: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeOiZHWkj6H9vTLmaEu2o1PaJamJBbIBZdQjp2rVe__eQ5JnQ/viewform?usp=pp_url

  • Advocate for Disappeared Individuals - Saudi Arabia, Middle East

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    There is a practice called 'Enforced Disappearance' in which an individual critical of an authoritarian government is simply kidnapped or disappeared by state actors, without trial or notifying the family. We advocate for these individuals and do not let their cases go unnoticed, especially when the government involved claims to be making progress on human rights, without releasing human rights activists. Advocacy can be in the form of social media, lobbying Congress and government officials, business contacts, public writing or speaking, or any creative form that volunteers think of - though we do have some standard techniques we use. We are a little different than other groups in that members are encouraged to come up with ideas and take initiative. We have regular meetings, several team leads and a slack group to support each other in the work. You will have a personal connection to others who care about these issues, and possibly directly to those affected. ** When responding to this opportunity, please include two or more days/times that you are available for an initial phone call ** This helps us more quickly move forward. Thank you! We work in a small team and support each other through regular calls and online contact. The specific advocacy varies with the situation, but we get advice from experienced groups and individuals to make sure we are not endangering anyone (or at least as sure as we can be) This is serious work, but we also have fun and it is really rewarding. We do want people who are committed to at least a 3-month time period if possible. The time required is just about 1 hour per week. Language skills are definitely a plus, but are not required!

We can also use help validating petition language and some other small relatively clear tasks. We also have other opportunities to work directly with family members and protestors, both in Iraq and elsewhere.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    General roles: Policy research: Study impact of human rights crisis on the life chances of Berkeley residents. Project long-term outcomes of economic/ecological trends, and develop prudent policy options to positively transform Berkeley and the Bay Area.

Produce anecdotal testimony illuminating effect of anti-poor legislation and racial profiling. Help develop community plans to advance human rights. Community organizing: Network with community-based organizations and progressive leaders from local governments and academia. Assist city commissioners to develop integrated, inter-disciplinary solutions to social problems. Specific priorities for 2020-2021: I. Participate in a citywide community engagement process, initiated by the city council in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, to re-envision public safety and police for people in Berkeley. Our participation will include a holistic look at the meaning of both safety and health, diving into the social determinants of health, with urgency driven by both the racial/criminal justice emergency and the Covid-19 pandemic. These crises in 2020 reveal massive disparities and and injustice both nationally and locally. In this moment we need to develop transformational solutions rather than simply band-aid solutions. The Commission's enabling statute mandates it to advise City Council and staff on issues of peace and social justice. Activities include: * Extensive research and policy development. * Writing * Community organizing. . II. Regional human rights website. This site will focus on exposure and mobilization against human rights violations across the nine Bay Area counties, including civil, political, social, economic, and cultural rights, and affecting all classes of oppressed and marginalized people. The objective is to create a go-to site for human rights information regionally, a premier news source for social justice, with stories supplied by a mix of local folks and professional writers, and a mobilizing force for social change. Activities include: * Web development and maintenance. In particular we need people with experience in the web development tool "WIX." * Monitoring news sources for relevant stories to highlight. * Original journalism. * Community organizing to develop a network of content contributors and activists across the region. * Fund-raising. . III. Police accountability. This area includes multiple initiatives, including a two-year campaign to place a charter amendment for a strong Berkeley police commission onto the November 2020 ballot. Also, a drive to address documented stark racial disparities in stops, searches, and use of force. Activities include: * In-depth analysis of trends in policing and accountability. * Study of positive initiatives in other jurisdictions. * Review and critique of proposed programs and technologies by local agencies. * Networking with regional police reform advocates. . IV. Development of an alternative news source on local government policy and political matters, particularly in Berkeley. Community reporters are sought to provide journalist-quality reportage on local events and government processes. The model is not pure opinion but reporting based on a progressive perspective. Activities include: * Community reporters who will make an extended commitment to a particular issue or an elected or appointed governing body. * Fund-raising. * Community organizing to develop writing talent, readership, and funding. . V. Participation in city commissions. Berkeley residents are needed to serve on the Peace and Justice Commission and other city commissions. Activities include: * Attendance at regular evening meetings (for most commissions, a minimum of one monthly, plus subcommittees as appropriate)

    We've spent years designing and developing information technology for activists, and now that it's finally about to go online, we realize it's time to find a legal specialist. We have an unconventional approach to finance, because we intend to enable activists in their countless struggles against governments and corporations, we've chosen to not accept money from governments or corporations. (We might apply for grants but we'll definitely avoid financial dependence). Our goal is to keep Needpedia's operational expenses as low as possible and use Needpedia's tools to crowdsource funding and labor as much as possible. Needpedia has a time bank so it has a way to reward users for helping maintain the site.-Or rather it will, for now we've produced the minimum viable product with the intention of democratically and collectively designing future elements using Needpedia's specialized tools.

    The Washington Urban Debate League (WUDL) is looking for folks to judge debates between middle and high school students about this year's topic, Criminal Justice Reform. No previous debate experience is necessary, only enthusiasm for working with youth and a willingness to listen and take notes. We provide a judge training session (held during breakfast) for folks who have never judged or competed in a debate before (no experience necessary). There are also an array of judge training resources on our website: www.urbandebatewashingtondc.org/volunteer-training-resources WUDL is a dynamic local non-profit organization that works exclusively with local public school students, especially those serving disadvantaged populations, and hosts the local debate tournament schedule here in D.C. Demand for our program has been overwhelming, we're adding more than 15 new schools this fall alone (despite the pandemic). We need more volunteers to help serve as judges for our tournaments. This is a great volunteer opportunity for you to make a large impact in a short amount of time. Every tournament is the culmination of weeks of preparation for the students, and every new volunteer allows 4 more students to participate. Copious amounts of peer-reviewed research show that debate is one of the best things a student can do with their time, and we work to make this fun and stimulating activity available to all students, not just those at elite prep schools. The organization has won a number of awards for its work. In 2018, WUDL was named the Outstanding Urban Debate League of the Year, and as one of the best local non-profits by the D.C. Catalog of Philanthropy. One of our students was named the National Urban Debater of the Year, and we've had two other finalists. WUDL Students are the reigning Middle School National Champions (2019, 2020) the last two years, and our Director was named one of the National After School Association's (NAA) Next Gen Leaders in 2019.

You see the impact of your volunteering immediately and gain hands-on knowledge of our tax system.
