Allies of Power

Want to build power with Emergent Justice? Then you are in the right place!

The Allies of Power (AOP) are volunteers who fuel our Campaigns for Change – our focused efforts to change parts of the system causing injustice to the people of Michigan.

There are many ways to be involved with the AOP and we’ve described a few of them below. To join us please complete the form and check all areas of interest. We’ll send you additional information based on what you pick.

If you are interested specifically in creative opportunities such as graphic design, illustration, writing, or photography and video (both taking and editing), please check out our volunteer Content Creation Team by clicking here.

All Emergent Justice Volunteers will be asked to complete a Volunteer Agreement as part of becoming involved.
