Volunteer for Social Justice!
We depend on the help of hundreds of volunteers each year to accomplish the important work we do. Volunteering is a great way to share your time and skills, meet like-minded people, and make a difference. We could use your help with mailings, organizing events, meeting with politicians, phone banking, going door-to-door, preparing the newsletter, technical support, data entry and more. Or maybe you have particular skill you would like to share. Here are some ways that you can help out:
Fight the Good Fight: Join a Campaign
Our campaigns for specific social justice demands are the heart of our work. We need people to help strategize, plan, and implement our campaigns. The 7-point Fight for Economic Justice vision statement is central to our work and helps inform what campaigns we take on. For more information and to sign-up to volunteer for these campaigns, click the links below.
Fight for Fifteen Campaign
Quality Public Education Campaign
If we hope to win on the issues that we care so deeply about, we must have a large membership leading the way. This year, Metro Justice has ambitious plans to grow - and we need your help. We can connect you with other progressives in your neighborhood, that have already shown some interest in Metro Justice, so that you can reach out to them and help them become members in Rochester's fastest-growing progressive community organization! Sign up here.
Metro Justice always has volunteer opportunities including canvassing and community outreach work, social media distribution, mailing assembly, data entry, fundraising, and phone banking. Sign up below to get involved!

This is unexcaptable to me, and I don’t know what to do about it but feel strongly that something needs be be done. I am 68, white women, in poor health and call my self middle class but realize I am fast sinking down out of that catagory. (I don’t even make $15/hour and am not a fast food worker. I have no savings for retirement so I cannot give money, that is clear. But what can a person in my situation do to help?
