The ACLU of Washington is now recruiting Outreach Volunteers to assist us with public education in the greater King County area. The ACLU regularly has information tables at events, sharing materials about our work to defend and extend people’s civil liberties and civil rights. This public education is essential to informing our supporters and the public; mobilizing people to send letters, make calls to government officials, and take to the streets for rallies and marches; and notifying our communities of important issues that impact them. We need the help of Outreach Volunteers to make this happen.
