Published: Jun 10, 2020 @ 9:51 AM

We strive for for an anti-racist approach to volunteering. What does this mean? We examine our practice and our platform and work to reduce systemic barriers and practices that keep people from engagement getting involved. Our staff are committed to continuing our learning journey and making improvements to our platform support anti-racist practice. Our view on volunteering is broad. We are here for volunteering in all of its forms including activism, and protesting.
