A few hours per month
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
If you are scared and angry about the state of our country and wonder how you can impact change, please join us. Cheryl Dolinger Brown and Susan Schulherr are organizing an on-line fundraising auction culminating in a party on June 12. We are raising funds for the candidate who wins the June Democratic primary for US Congress in New York State District 11 (Staten Island and southwest Brooklyn). We are working with Swing Left (http://www.swingleft.org) whose aim is to help take back the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
Our one outstanding specialized volunteer need is someone with event planning skills for a June 12 fundraising party in Midtown. We have party ideas and members ready to plan the party.
We need a team leader.
We also need more volunteers who can help out with both the online auction and planning and putting on the live event. If you can pitch in, our volunteer sign up page is https://actionnetwork.org/events/ny-11-fundraising-auction?referrer=susan-schulherr&source=direct_link
Working on this fundraiser and other Swing Left activities is invaluable as a way to turn personal feelings of helplessness into empowerment, and despair into hope.
