Volunteer's Corner

Volunteer's Corner

 We have the following opportunities for you to act as an Ambassador for CAIR-Minnesota:

Thursday, August 8th, “Practical Empathy – Introduction to Nonviolent Communication and Responding with Humanity in the Heat of the Moment – NVC on the Street” Workshop at Bethany’s Lower Fellowship Hall from 6:30 to 9:15 pm– we’ll need just a few volunteers to help with set up, assist during the event and clean up afterwards. Volunteers are welcome to take part in the workshop - bonus!

 PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE - Thursday, August 15th, 6:30 to 9:00 pm Youth Program Fundraising Dinner at Hope Trinity Lutheran Church, 2730 E 31st St, Minneapolis, MN 55406 – we anticipate 50 people will be attending – we’ll need about 5-6 volunteers for set up, assisting during the event and clean up. (We have some volunteers but could use some more help).

 Sunday, August 25th, Open Streets Franklin, we will have a CAIR-MN table (bonus attraction - this year we'll be providing a tent for SHADE!) right outside our office at 2511 East Franklin Avenue here in the wonderful Seward Neighborhood. The hours of Open Streets Franklin will be from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm so you can just assign yourself a two-hour shift (or more, if you are so inclined).

 See this link for the CAIR-MN Volunteer Opportunities Sign Up Sheet.

 We’ll have a couple of Saturday dates at the Midway Farmers Market to be scheduled in September– I am waiting for confirmation on that and will let everyone know. 

 Please contact Patti at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you're interested in volunteering and thank you! Ask Patti about the new CAIR-MN Info Sheet to help you to be an informed CAIR-MN advocate.

 Reminder - Volunteer Meetings take place the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the CAIR-MN offices.
