Volunteers for SF Pride needed!

Bay Area Vegetarians is staffing an info booth at SF Pride on factory farming and veg*nism. We are now recruiting for volunteers to help with the set-up and takedown, as well as staff the booth. Below is what we need help with. FYI, SF Pride is 6/25-26 in Civic Center. Our “Veg Pride” booth is in front of the Asian Art Museum.

Takedown and Carry to car need one or two more on each day!

We do have an industrial strength dolly to carry the heavy stuff, but there’s lots of light, bulky stuff to carry too. many hands/feet translate to faster exit. Could use 3 or 4 extra people. No specific skills or previous experience necessary, just a willingness to help.

Saturday 6:01 pm – 6:45 pm
Sunday 7:01 pm – 7:45 pm

Vegan Food Genie – open

If you love to make vegan food and want to bring volunteers some treats anytime during the day, please let me know!

Leafleting – open

You like to be amidst the crowd and distribute veg info in front of our info booth. Comfortable with outreach and knowledgeable about factory farming issues, as well as veganism.

How to Volunteer

If you are interested in volunteering, please email us with your name and tel #, and what you are interested in. If you are interested in staffing the table and haven’t volunteered with us before, please also include information about your outreach background/experience and familiarity with factory farming/veganism so I can make sure that we are staffed with the right mix of knowledge/experience at the info booth at all times.

We will keep this list of open positions updated here, so check back if you’re not sure of your availability just yet.
