It's more than giving your time — it's Volunteer Activism! OutFront Minnesota welcomes all supporters of LGBT equality to help us do this important work. Please join us!
OutFront Minnesota's Lobby Day for LGBT Equality is one of the largest events of its kind in the country and the most important day for fair-minded Minnesotans to come together to demonstrate their support for LGBT equality to their legislators. This year Lobby Day will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2013. Dozens of volunteers spend time with us every year, doing everything from staffing tables to being Lobby Coaches. You can help out, too! Sign up today!
Twin Cities Pride
Fun, sun, and hundreds of thousands of people just waiting to be organized - that's what Pride Weekend means to us! There is no better opportunity to discuss LGBT equality with our community than at one of the largest Pride Festivals in the country. We're in the middle of all the action every year. Volunteers at Pride staff Information Booths, canvass the crowd, register voters and serve up the cheapest coffee, lemonade and cookies in the Park! It all happens during the last weekend of June (29-30) at Loring Park in Minneapolis.
Join the fun, enjoy the sun, and help your community organize!
Phone banking remains one of the most effective political organizing tools available. To increase our efficiency, we use predictive dialer technology, which means no hand-dialing!
Join our phone bank team today!
Tabling and Events
Another opportunity for organizing work is by staffing information tables at events. Throughout the year we rely on responsible volunteers to represent OutFront Minnesota at numerous events and venues across the state. This is a fun way to meet a lot of great people while helping OutFront Minnesota achieve our goals. Sign up today!
Data Entry Parties
For a social justice non-profit, the importance of a growing and well-maintained database cannot be over-emphasized. It is literally our greatest (non-volunteer!) asset.
We party it up on Tuesday nights. Volunteers arrive by 6pm. We work until 8, occasionally heading out to a local establishment for conversation and refreshment afterwards. Mark the dates below on your calendars and make plans to join the party! Join the fun.
We welcome weekday volunteers to our office. There are two volunteer computers always available. Weekday volunteers are scheduled for times between 10am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. Most choose to work 2 hour shifts.
Sign up and we'll see where we can place you in the office schedule.
Bar Night Outreach
Our local LGBT bars represent important, safe gathering spaces for our community. We take our organizing to our community, registering voters, canvassing patrons and growing our movement. Sign up for the Bar Night team and get in on all the fun!
