Volunteer Projects

COMMUNICATIONS & SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM:

Join SFPIRG’s communications team to draft content for social media and share educational materials about social media on our website. Together, we raise awareness, educate, and empower the SFU community to act on social and environmental justice. Share your art and creativity to help our movements grow and learn!

POLITICAL LETTER WRITING COLLECTIVE

Join a collective of folks looking to build or grow skills to write effective and impactful letters on a wide variety of political topics including Indigenous sovereignty, climate change, abolition and policing, protecting old growth forests, and more!

MENTAL HEALTH PEERS COLLECTIVE

Would you like to develop the skills to support people in your life and your community when they experience mental health crisis? Would you like a safe place to discuss your own experiences and relationship to mental health? Are you interested in exploring alternatives to the mainstream mental health system and the psychiatric model? Are you open to critiques of the all too often nonconsensual and violent approaches taken by the current mental health system – and the police –  when they respond to people who are behaving in unusual ways or experiencing altered states?

Join us for a deep dive into approaches to responding to emotional crisis and to behavioral and cognitive difference that are rooted in disability and healing justice, consent-based and anti-carceral values, and the understanding that oppression and violence cause individual, collective and intergenerational trauma.

We are inspired by the idea that we are all capable of graining in comfort and skills for supporting one another through the hard stuff. We are inspired by groups like Project LETS, BEAM – the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, the Fireweed Collective, and Mental Health First, a project of the Anti Police-Terror Project.

Let’s learn together and build networks of campus and community safety, person by person!

MUTUAL-AID & ALTERNATIVE COMMUNITY SAFETY ORGANIZING TEAM:

Note: this team is taking a break for the fall, but will be back in the spring! Check back in the fall for how you can join and learn about the movement to defund/abolish the police and explore practice strategies for building individual and community capacity for responding to social harms without recourse to governance through violence.
