The Content Creation Volunteer Team helps Emergent Justice make content that adds to the conversation about our issues and encourages people to think more deeply about those issues. It helps build community power through narrative and visual images.
We want to tell stories that matter. Stories that matter are those that bring awareness to an issue or situation, deepen the public’s understanding of the issue, and then motivate them to take action in some way (sign a petition, attend a rally, contact their elected officials, become involved in our work on the issue).
If this sounds like the kind of content creation you want to be a part of, please complete the form. After you do so, you’ll receive an email with Next Steps.
We ask that content creation volunteers:
- commit to volunteering 3 – 5 hours per week
- be able to work independently, meet deadlines and be detail oriented
- be willing to sign a Volunteer Agreement
