  • Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Committee Member

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

    Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in your community? A way to have a real impact on climate issues that directly affect you, your business, your friends and neighbors and future generations? Then join our CPACE committee that is working to persuade our local government to pass an ordinance that will enable CPACE financing to be used for buildings in our community. Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) financing is a special financing tool that helps pay for clean energy and energy efficiency upgrades to commercial buildings. We are trying to get the city council of Bend to pass an ordinance enabling this tool for Bend (it's already enabled for the state of Oregon). Our focus with this tool is to encourage its use for low-income housing, allowing building owners to upgrade their buildings and increase equity while lowering the energy costs for tenants. The committee will meet approximately once per month for about an hour. Tasks for individuals to accomplish to further the cause will be designated during meetings. This opportunity offers the chance for committee members to learn or hone skills such as communication with government officials, research, graphic design, giving virtual, public presentations, and more! We hope you'll join us and help our community work towards a more sustainable future!

  • Safe Tracks Campain Committee

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

    Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in your community? A way to have a real impact on climate issues that directly affect you, your business, your friends and neighbors and future generations? Then join our Safe Tracks Campaign Committee that is working to persuade our local government to pass an ordinance requiring trains carrying crude oil that pass through our town to carry enough insurance to cover the costs of a worst-case crash or spill. The number of trains carrying highly flammable petroleum products by rail through Oregon is increasing, and a recent executive order from the White House opens the door for liquified natural gas (LNG) to be transported by rail as well. In our city, the tracks run through busy and highly developed areas. If a train carrying crude oil derails or catches fire, they can cause huge amounts of damage to anything within 1 mile of the tracks. In Bend, this 1-mile radius includes many schools, parks, all of Downtown, and large sections of the Deschutes River. In the case of a potential spill or derailment, disaster response and cleanup efforts could easily total in the millions or even billions of dollars. We are trying to get the city council of Bend to pass an ordinance requiring that any corporation transporting oil or LNG by rail through our community carry insurance equal to the cost of a worst-case spill or fire, and to carry a surety bond obligating them to pay the cost of response and cleanup, and disclose the dangerous cargo to first responders with at least 24 hours notice. The committee will meet approximately once per month for about an hour. Tasks for individuals to accomplish to further the cause will be designated during meetings. This opportunity offers the chance for committee members to learn or hone skills such as communication with government officials, research, graphic design, giving virtual, public presentations, and more! We hope you'll join us and help our community work towards a more sustainable future!

  • Voting should be easy. Until it is, help your friends vote with Turnout Nation.

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

    Voting should be easy. Until is is, helping your friends vote is the most effective way to increase voter turnout. Turnout Nation is a community of civically engaged Captains that pledge to help at least 10 of their friends vote in the 2020 election and beyond if you choose. In these unprecedented times, having the help and encouragement of a trusted friend or family member can make all the difference. By becoming a Captain, you can inspire others to help people in their communities make their voices heard. We are invested in this methodology because it works! In a randomized control trial run by Dr. Donald Green from Columbia University, our relational organizing was proven to be 10x more effective than door-to-door canvassing. How you can join the network: Join our Captain community by finding family members, friends, and acquaintances you’ll get to vote! Connect with us on volunteer match and we'll help you get signed up for a one time 20 minute training. We only use data to give Captains this information and will never sell data. We will never ask for the contact information of voters or attempt to contact them. Protecting the information of Captains and voters is our top priority. Turnout Nation is a non-partisan, fiscally sponsored project under the Social Good Fund, a 501(C3) non-profit. Organizers provide support and tools along the way as well as verified community service hours. We're nonpartisan and will not sell or your data under any circumstances. We're conducting another trial with Columbia University to test this method in a general election. We offer the option to be a part of this trial and can ensure that your data will still be anonymous and protected. Why it Matters: Just over half US citizens voted in 2016 and states are increasingly decided by razor thin margins. By using an effective turnout method, you can have a big impact. The work doesn’t stop after the 2020 presidential election. Our community is invited to keep using our platform to increase voter turnout for other local and statewide initiatives and elections.

V. Participation in city commissions. Berkeley residents are needed to serve on the Peace and Justice Commission and other city commissions.

  • Volunteer with Sierra Club's Ready for 100: Columbus Campaign!

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

    **While COVID19 is a concern, we will be conducting meetings and outreach digitally and using social distancing measures. The Sierra Club is the largest and oldest environmental group in the United States and has been essential to the founding of the National Parks, the enforcement of the NEPA, the Clean Water, and the Clean Air Acts. We've recently launched a number of local campaigns, Ready for 100 campaigns to push cities to commit to powering themselves by 100% renewable energy, and the Central Ohio Group has started our own right in Columbus, and we need you! We're looking for passionate individuals to serve on the four major committees within our campaign: grassroots organizing, grasstops policy advocacy, communications, and digital. Though the time commitment for each committee varies, you can expect them all to include a meeting once a month or every other month for an hour/hour and a half, in addition to whatever outside work you assign yourselves as a team. Below you can read a detailed account of the work each committee does, or find a quick summary on our volunteer sign up link here (https://goo.gl/forms/HkPPdNNs2QsW2EQu2). You can also watch a video introducing our campaign here ( https://vimeo.com/250354431). If you have any questions, feel free to email the contact for this post. If you'd like to sign up to volunteer, please do so on the link provided ( https://goo.gl/forms/HkPPdNNs2QsW2EQu2) as this will help us get you in the right place faster than if you email the post-contact directly. Thank you so much! We look forward to working with you! Grassroots The Grassroots Committee is perhaps the most foundational and important committee of the campaign. Without grassroots messaging and support, we really can’t exist. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to research and serve as liaisons to groups within the Columbus community, and bring them our message and request sign-on to our campaign. We’ll build bridges with local groups and ensure that we work together to create a coalition to bring our demands for a cleaner and sustainable future to city leaders. We can form relationships with groups in all different areas, including (in no particular order): Health care Faith groups Small business Large business Colleges and universities Nonprofits Arts community Low-income agencies Organizations that represent women, people of color, LGBT Unions and labor groups In addition, the grassroots committee will also have numerous opportunities to table at events and spread the word to individuals in all sorts of communities. Grasstops The Grasstops Committee is tasked with forging relationships with city leaders and delivering our campaign pledges to them. They are the lobbyists of Ready for 100 and are the primary way we intend to sway city council. We are looking for extroverted people who consider themselves sufficiently affable to impress these local leaders and make connections on behalf of the campaign. We also need researchers who can map out our local leadership networks and effectively communicate about these networks to the rest of the campaign. Communications/Media The Communications and Media Committee is a critical arm of the campaign. You can think of it as the committee that maintains our public image and helps the other committees meet their goals by researching various topics and finding new ways to effectively communicate the Ready for 100 messages to the public. The Communications team has three main positions: Researchers: people who are willing to fact check & update content as facts & numbers change. Writers: people who are skilled writers to update content on our web page, social media, handouts, press statements, etc. Graphic designers: people who can help put together handouts and printed documents in an aesthetically pleasing way. Additionally, the Communications committee is looking for volunteers to help out on our media team. This subgroup is specifically dedicated to producing video content such as the campaign promotional video we sent out in our last email. We are looking for anyone with a background in video editing, digital video, storytelling, motion graphics, graphic design, animation, photography, project management, lighting design, sound design or music. Digital The Digital Committee has a lot of overlap with the communications committee. However, Digital also has its own list of unique responsibilities. Their objective is to: Maintain and manage our digital presence (Facebook, website and other social media accounts as needed). Maintain Add-Up, which is our best way to get petitions out to the public. Manage the emails to supporters and volunteers and help keep our campaign in sync.

  • Election Integrity Advocates: Prevent Hacking 2020

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

    Protecting the integrity of our elections and democratic process is quite possibly the most critical task over the next few months. Local officials have an important role to play, in particular by providing backup paper pollbooks, allowing poll watchers to immediately record local results, and ensuring that election machines do not have modems attached. By asking key security questions to local officials about their plans and efforts, we hope to raise the priority of these key process issues that could be crucial to maintaining the integrity of our electoral process. In particular we are focusing on Wisconsin, Florida, and Michigan. We are working with recognized expert in election integrity Jennifer Cohn who is providing us with background information and will answer questions as needed, and may work with other experts as well. Please help us protect the integrity of our next election! This is non-partisan and important work for all of us! note - Included the COVID checkbox, as obviously the mechanisms of our elections have been impacted by COVID-19.

  • Legislative Process in California. Creating and passing a Bill in CA

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

    We want to write and pass a Bill in California and other states. We need all the help we can get, this is our first time. Would you like to live in a world without problems and suffering? You can, and it can be done thanks to new, never before available material that revolutionizes problem-solving methods. Not only can it solve any existing human-made problem, but it can prevent them from occurring again. Together we can: Overturn the laws that have turned animals into a property and have made animal farming legal under the protection of the law. Instead, installing a new conclusion that makes ownership, animal farming, or exploitation unthinkable. End all human and animal suffering by recognizing the root cause of its existence. The recognition itself eradicates it and prevents any future recurrence. Overturn laws that have legalized corporations and their property. Exposing the fact that corporations are not single entities, thus they cannot own nor be owned, thus making them meaningless. End all human-made conflicts/wars/problems such as racism, prejudice, violence, bullying, all negativities, etc., by making them inconceivable and unthinkable. End all environmental crises and climate change by changing it from a separate issue to everyone's issue. Inform everyone that there is not a single problem or suffering in the world that did not start because of our reliance on inaccurate senses. How does a person's apathy turn into compassion, unaware of even the concept of harming another living being? Throughout history, there has been no philosophy, theory, education, religion, or wishful thinking that has produced any noticeable amount of compassionate people. Yet, there is one fact, unknown to most, that can produce this miraculous positive change in everyone. We know we can do this easily as this revolutionary information we are about to present has never been available or known to most humans. Are you interested?

  • Veterans....... We Need You!!!

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

    Throughout history, thousands of men and women have served in the United States military armed forces. Putting aside regard for themselves and leaving behind family and friends, they chose to defend our coUntry and its ideals. Peace, freedom, justice, opportunity and individualism are just dreams without someone to turn these ideals into reality. At Crossroads Hospice, we want to recognize the sacrifices that many of our patients have made in serving their country. In doing so, we have created a Veterans Recognition Program. Interested volunteers would present a Certificate of Appreciation to Veterans who are receiving care from Crossroads Hospice and spend time sharing their experiences in the armed forces. We have patients in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware counties. Please contact Kimberly Mumper at 215-956-5110 for more information.

  • From California? Amplify your impact by participating in a Columbia University Voter Turnout Study!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Wed, October 14, 2020 - Tue, November 3, 2020

    What is Turnout Nation? Turnout Nation is a 501-c3 initiative of the Social Good Fund. Turnout Nation volunteers, called Captains, make a list of 10 people they know that they will pledge to help vote in local and federal elections. We empower Captains with up to date state specific resources so they can help people in their own social networks vote! The study: We're conducting a randomized control trial with Dr. Donald P Green of Columbia University to measure the effectiveness of the "Captain method" of getting 10 friends to vote. All you have to do is schedule a brief phone call with us and follow up with a few friends until election day to make sure they vote. Why it matters? Almost 45% of people in the US didn't vote in the 2016 presidential election and, on average, only 17% of people vote in local elections. Millions of dollars are spent on campaigns and voter suppression and misinformation are commonplace. Having the help of a trusted friend or community member when trying to vote can make all the difference. Turnout Nation hopes to help create a stronger voting culture in all states, for every election. By joining the trial, you're helping to bring more attention to grassroots friend-to-friend mobilization as a way to get out the vote. Help us prove that empowering and compensating local organizers is key to encouraging civic engagement everywhere. Why California? California allows for same day registration and automatic mail in voting so it is easy to participate. Local elections are incredibly important. However, California is not a "battleground" state that typically decides presidential races and legislative majorities. Participating in a study is a way to potentially impact how campaigns and non-profits work to get-out-the-vote across the country for federal elections. You can make an impact beyond your vote by helping us show that local non-partisan organizing is more effective, transparent, and respectful than social media smear campaigns or partisan text and phone banking!

    Many Americans are concerned about the integrity of our upcoming election. In addition to the important preventative measures being taken by other groups, this small team will collaborate with experts and other election security groups to prepare for a possible post-election audit. Currently, we are working on ways to communicate this simple and direct method to media and the public. We need to help people realize that it _is_ possible to audit the election results, and that anyone can understand the simple methods to do so. Our biggest volunteer need currently is for graphics and visuals to help convey the ideas. However, specific experience is not required - we can use anyone who is willing to commit some time to the effort. Questions welcome. (We are currently close communication with DemocracyCounts, Scrutineers, ProtectOurVotes and other groups and hope to work in a way that complements with their efforts)
