Support LGBTQ+ media coverage
No matter how little or how much time you have to volunteer, GLAAD wants you. You can sign up to help out at their annual media awards in NYC or volunteer throughout the year at events and on projects that help encourage fair representation of LGBTQ people in the media.
Help Syrian refugees
The Multifaith Alliance, an organization of Jewish groups, is seeking volunteers to help work with religious groups and nonprofits as well as individuals to help raise awareness of the refugee crisis, raise funds to support humanitarian organizations in Syria, and plan programs in NYC to help accomplish these goals. Contact Marlene Adler, firstname.lastname@example.org, to get involved.
Support LGBTQ students and education
The Gay and Lesbian Student Education Network (GLSEN) needs more volunteers to help out with mailings, outreach, and beyond to help support their mission of ensuring safety and respect for all students, regardless of their sexuality or gender. Those who want to get more involved can also join the 100% volunteer-run board of GLSEN, to support the nonprofit in finding new and sustainable ways to help LGBTQ students. Those interested in joining the board, or keeping upcoming GLSEN events on their radar, can email email@example.com.
