In anticipation of our next annual event (September 30th, 2017), the March To End Rape Culture is seeking new volunteers and organizers. We're looking for help leading up to the event (including fundraising and outreach), as well as help making the actual march and rally the best event possible! If you're interested, please head on over to our volunteering page and let us know how you can help. Thanks!
