Sometimes you want to support a cause, or a specific organization, or just want to help where help is needed. But, giving $$$ isn't always possible. I know that's true for me. I'm on an educational advisory board, a non-profit board (Collective Action for Safe Spaces!), and a fundraising committee for my high school. I love giving time and money to all three, but in all honestly, the time part is sometimes easier to manage.
Volunteering and contributing time are great ways to stay active and engaged in issues you want to affect while helping organizations and collectives whose work you believe in. Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) is recruiting volunteers next week at a social on U St NW. Check in on the event page here.
CASS has a powerfully simple vision: Empowering the DC Metro area to build a community free from public sexual harassment and assault.
Yes, the issue is local. Working to stop sexual harassment and sex crimes on Metro
Yes, the issue is global. The global street harassment myth that has to die
Start by helping on the local side! This volunteer recruitment social is from 7:00 - 9:00 PM, on Wednesday, June 15. The location is Sudhouse; 1340 U Street NW
From the organizers:
CASS is powered by the passion and energy of our amazing volunteers! Interested in joining our family? We need support with our advocacy, communications, and fundraising work. Join us for this social at the Hooch (Sudhouse's upstairs bar) to learn more about specific ways that you can plug in to CASS's work.
ALSO, Sudhouse is a soon-to-be certified Safe Bar. So join us to support this awesome safe space!
