The last major commitment is for volunteer advocates to contact their elected officials by phone or email when a bill proposed or supported by Safe Passage is going to be heard in a state legislative committee, by the full state House or Senate, or in a county board hearing. Safe Passage provides advocates with a background explanation of the bill and the desired outcome, contact information for their elected officials, and suggested language for the email or phone call. Volunteers are also asked to copy Safe Passage staff on the emails so we can track legislative contacts.
There are additional opportunities for those who want to get involved in more depth. Volunteers have contributed their expertise in areas such as graphic design, research, volunteer coordination, web development, and marketing. If you have a special area of knowledge please let us know and we will find a way to help you use it for kids!
