Public Relations Volunteer

1-6 hours / weekly
Minimum 6 months, or ongoing
Canadian Voices Against Racism (CVAR) is building a database of police brutality and police killings in Canada as a means to advocate for deep structural change. Since a complete database does not currently exist, we believe our database has the potential to become a powerful tool to petition lawmakers to dismantle racist, discriminatory, and oppressive laws and practices that disproportionately target Black, Indigenous, and racialized communities.

With a full administrative team and an advisory board, and as CVAR continues to grow, we are looking for a volunteer with experience in public relations to help us navigate various inquiries from the public and related organizations, strategize and plan campaigns, and to prepare statements and participate in other outreach activities. 

You can find more information about who we are, our mission and our vision on our website www.canadianvoicesagainstracism.com
