Worker Justice Wisconsin is powered by members and volunteers of all kinds – workers, students, retirees, congregational groups. No experience is necessary, and training is provided. Some positions are weekly and others are as-needed.
At our worker center in the Madison Labor Temple: Volunteers enter data, prepare mailings, make copies, write, and generally keep our doors open. Bilingual English/Spanish speakers are needed to answer and make phone calls. Advocates are trained in Wisconsin worker rights and resources, so that they can work on specific problems facing the workers who come to our center.
Outreach and events: We are a coalition as well as a physical center. It’s all about making connections. Some volunteers do this by distributing fliers in their congregation or around town. Informational table volunteers represent Worker Justice at community events, answering questions and inviting people to the center. Welcome volunteers make worker meetings, educational workshops and special events possible. Volunteers plan events, greet participants, or provide a meal so that workers can learn and organize.
Apply for a Worker Justice Internship: We accept interns year-round, from a variety of graduate and undergraduate programs, including: human services, social work, data and information sciences, human ecology, program management, history, community organizing and religious studies.
