Volunteer for “Campus Conversations” Monday, April 29
Indivisible AVL is hosting a day-long tabling event at UNCA for our Stand Against Racism project, and we need volunteers! For “Campus Conversations: An Indivisible Stand Against Racism,” we will talk with students about racial justice and the connection to immigration issues. Join us in front of Ramsey Library on the UNCA campus, as we engage in dialogue and take the pledge to stand against racism in our daily lives. Can you volunteer an hour? We’ll provide all necessary materials. If you can help, please fill out this short form today. If you can’t, please drop by between 10 and 4 and say hi!
