    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 petition committee that is working to create presentations that combine hard facts and true stories to persuade our local government to enact policies that will protect our climate and our community. 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. 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. In this petition, we ask that the city council codify that any corporation transporting oil or LNG by rail through our community needs to 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.

  • Help us raise voter turnout from a social distance. Become a virtual organizer with Turnout Nation.

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

    While the pandemic may prevent us from being politically active in real life, it won’t stop us from mobilizing online! Turnout Nation is a non-partisan network of passionate people working to increase turnout in US elections. Our movement is carried by Captains, volunteers who recruit 10 people in their social circle to vote. The main responsibility of a Captain is to get their friends to commit to voting by creating an ongoing dialog about the importance of voting and how to get it done. They use our easy to access resources to provide up-to-date information on registration and voting to their connections until election day. 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 10 family members, friends, and acquaintances you’ll get to vote! Captains enter their 10 names in our android/iOS app to check their registration and voting status, and can recruit other Captains, thereby multiplying their impact. 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. Captains that want to contribute more time outside of helping their 10 voters can Join the Support Team and help with research, content creation, and other technical projects, and help us recruit more Captains in our target states. 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. Turnout Nation is a non-partisan, fiscally sponsored project under the Social Good Fund, a 501(C3) non-profit. For general inquiries, please visit our website.

All our student participants receive a certificate of participation and top students receive ribbons, medals, or trophies. This is an incredible program for youth because Public Speaking is one of the #1 fears but it is also one of the most critical skills for college, career and civic success. We need your help in empowering our future generations of leaders. Our mission is that every student and every school should have access to speech and debate opportunities. All students are Great Debaters! THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR PROGRAM POSSIBLE. Our program is entirely free.

  • Design our "case for support" to help raise funds to combat sexual violence

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

    Every Voice is an all-volunteer organization of students and survivors working to combat sexual violence on college campuses (everyvoicema.org). For five years, we have advocated for comprehensive measures to support survivors, including access to healthcare and counseling services, as well as improved prevention and bystander intervention education and more transparent data collection. Today, we have student-written legislation filed in five states, and we are trying to bring on staff that can oversee our 100+ volunteers and see this work through to completion (30 out of the 50 states still have no legislation at all in place regarding campus sexual violence). Along with my co-founders, I have worked on this advocacy as a volunteer on nights and weekends over the past 6 years. Last month, I quit my job to go all-in on our advocacy, but right now we have little money and no staff. As we try to build a stronger organization that can empower the next generation of students to make their voices heard, our first step is going to be to put together a "case for support" so that we can raise the money we need to launch this campaign nationwide. We have an official logo and some written materials, but we want to think about how to put together a core "case for support" that will be professional, engaging, and compelling to foundations and donors. Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you so much!!

  • CO Wildlife Corridor Campaign [VIRTUAL, state-wide]

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

    Habitat loss and fragmentation are the biggest drivers of species decline and extinction worldwide. Over a million species are currently at risk of extinction. Fragmentation reduces the ability of wildlife to migrate, find mates, disperse (establish new territories), and may limit their access to food and water. Fragmentation also limits wildlife’s ability to adapt to climate change. As the climate warms, wildlife will need to move to more suitable habitats. Connections northward and upward will be particularly important as our climate warms to provide pathways to cooler climates, including mountain ranges. Colorado is in a unique position to be a leader for habitat connectivity in the West. Last August, Governor Jared Polis signed the executive order, "Conserving Colorado’s Big Game Winter Range and Migration Corridors," which will protect migration corridors through partnerships, technology, and collaborative funding efforts. Governor Polis has championed connectivity with his executive order, but in order to secure lasting and durable policies, we'll be working to build local support in key areas along the key wildlife migration routes and potential corridors. Come join us to build support across the state, making biodiversity and habitat connectivity a priority for cities, counties, and our state legislators! You will help with social media outreach, planning lobby meetings, expanding and strengthening our network of volunteers, and a lot more!

  • Seeking digital designers to get out the 2020 progressive vote

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

    This volunteer opportunity is with Movement Voter Project (MVP) and Community Change Action (CCA), organizations that funnel money and strategic support to upwards of 400 get-out-the-vote (GOTV) groups in +40 states across the country. MVP and CCA focus in particular on mobilizing marginalized and disenfranchised communities, those that are critical to the left's chances of winning elections this fall. MVP and CCA are sponsoring a digital media campaign for the benefit and use of the hundreds of grassroots get-out-the-vote organizations in their networks. That's where we need your design talent. The left does not have a cohesive visual lexicon right now, one that celebrates the values and inspirational heroes that are our true motivation to get to the polls this fall, more so than any particular politician. Our ask is for several hours of your time to participate in a "design jam" with other designers. During this design jam, the goal is to develop templates we can customize with a variety of images and language that would resonate with specific niches across the GOTV groups that MVP and CCA support. Think of this as going door-to-door to get voters out to the polls, but from the comfort of your home, and with your design skills. We will be creating graphics that support numerous causes, including climate justice, immigrant rights, protecting national forests, LGBTQ+ rights, women's rights, gun control, opioid addiction treatment, and other major policy areas in dire need of support. You will be able to dedicate your efforts to any and all values that you personally cherish and seek to uphold.

  • Tired of feeling disenchanted with politics, a unique, asp-based forum needs some updating

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

    Just prior to the whole pandemic issue I attempted to bring individuals together to discuss how we can get traction to deploy some very innovative tools and strategies to address climate change, digital divide and urban congestion. (Pandemic preparations were part of the tool kit but not part of the focus then). We had used the e-Consensus forum in our year long Community Dialogue Process with great results and wanted to update the software and include a phone app. I managed to gather all of the relevant asp files into hostgator but the old system was embedded in frames (remember those?) and the navigation no longer works. Being a non-techie, it would seem that this should not be a big deal but the software companies I have spoken with want a lot of money and they make it sound like a massive challenge. I need someone that can simply "de-frame" it and allow the navigation to work. There is an embedded survey tool that is no longer marketed. Big question if it will come up or if it needs to be replaced. Fingers crossed as the software is heavily integrated into the forum screens If it is not pretty enough that is another issue, right now I want to launch some forums and I am quite happy the way it is laid out, but open to recommendations. Step 1- diagnose the challenge Step 2- get it running again Step 3- discuss future enhancements Happy to discuss it in detail. There are videos that explain it and a homepage with all of the website support files/screens available

For each webinar we need individuals to make sure it runs smoothly, this includes introducing the speaker, moderating questions from virtual attendees, and closing out the virtual room after the webinar is over. The webinar platform will be Zoom or a similar online meeting software. Training in hosting a webinar on the chosen platform will be provided, as well as a virtual orientation to familiarize volunteers with the procedure. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about clean energy solutions, as well as to build your skills in an online meeting platform!
