Volunteer with EJC Advocacy Campaigns
We need volunteers to help promote EJC’s legislative and enforcement campaigns designed to improve DC’s laws for workers and increase enforcement of existing workplace fairness laws. We need people who can help produce campaign materials, organize workers and other volunteers to take action, testify before the D.C. Council, write letters to the editor, consult on legislative drafting, host house parties or phone banks, and participate in countless other grassroots advocacy techniques. If you are interested, please contact Naomi at (202) 645-5364 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Volunteer with the EJC Workers’ Rights Clinics
We currently need intake volunteers for our Workers’ Rights Clinic that takes place every Wednesday evening, particularly those who speak Spanish.
The Workers’ Rights Clinic is a walk-in advice clinic for low-income workers. Intake interviewers use a structured intake questionnaire developed by the EJC to interview workers about their workplace problem. Experienced employment lawyers are on hand to supervise the intake interviewers and help them advise the workers. No experience is necessary- we can use everyone! We are asking that only people interested in making a commitment to volunteer at clinic at least once a month become volunteers.
Before you volunteer you will need to attend an observational clinic, fill out a volunteer information sheet and particpate in a volunteer training session. We hold trainings about three times a year- the beginning of each school semester and the beginning of summer. Please contact us at (202) 828-9675 × 118 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The NW clinic is held just north of downtown Washington at Bread for the City – NW, 1525 7th Street NW. It is accessible by car, metro or bus. The SE clinic is held at Bread for the City – SE, 1640 Good Hope Road SE. It is accessible by car or bus. Parking is plentiful and free in Bread for the City’s parking lot or on the street. Volunteers are always willing to drive you to the metro when the clinic is over and groups of volunteers often walk together to the metro after clinic is finished.
