Volunteering In 2023- Call out For Practical Solidarity
SPEAK is a participatory Network. The main thing you can do is keep being active and working for social justice locally, as many of you are doing, and staying in touch with the Network by sharing stories of inspiration.
However, there are specific tasks Network Support Team could really do with help in. The amount of time needed for such tasks can range from ten minutes a month to taking over a whole new area of responsibility in the Network.
We urgently need support in completing the massive SPEAK web site revamp (currently underway behind the scenes)!! We are hoping for this to go live to celebrate SPEAKs 25th Birthday in 2025.
We also have a pipeline of blogs and vlogs we are developing. At the moment they are at the research and development phase. So please do get in touch if you are interested either in helping develop new material, or in giving quick feedback on the material under development! We also need support in 2023 in developing the digital Pray and Posts. We specially want to make accessible ones for people with difficulty reading text so to add audio elements to everything.
Please also get in touch if you have experience in funding applications, or if you want to do some local support of SPEAK people in your area. The email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Spreading The Love... Spreading The Info
We have been given feedback that there has been A LOT OF INFO in Network emails whenever we we send them out.. People have also told us that the gaps between emails are bigger than what would be preferable. People want more emails form us! How exciting!! So Network feedback has been suggesting we spread out the info and send more focused digest-able messages out more often. So please do stay tuned for 2023!
