If you are unable to commit to a coordinator or facilitator role but would still like to get involved, please be in touch! We could always use a hand with building further community connections, creating our zines, making graphics, and coming up with ideas for future initiatives and goals.
Our virtual weekly meetings take place Wednesdays from 7-8 p.m ET.
At the moment, we are a completely volunteer-based organization and unfortunately cannot offer honoraria or pay, which is why we keep work collaborative.
