You can also get involved by volunteering with us, see below.

We are facing an ecological crisis and we need your help. Our beautiful movement is built on the work of volunteers who give their time and energy to help achieve radical change. Whether you have a lot of time or only a small amount, if you would like to contribute, please contact us. The list below shows the roles we need to fill a bit more urgently but there are always lots of things you can do to support our work - a list of our working groups is on this page. Get in touch at email@example.com
ACTIONS WORKING GROUP - MEMBERS
Extinction Rebellion uses non-violent direct action to get our demands met and we need people to help organise our actions in Sheffield. We are looking for people to join the currrent group, in particular to plan for an upcoming action in early February
There should be members of each Affinity Group on the Actions Working Group, and some of those Affinity Group members may wish to consider taking on an Actions Working Group coordinator role.
INTRODUCTIONS SESSIONS - ADMIN
Admin role for the Introductions sessions Working Group - starting at the end of March. This is something that can be done remotely, maybe by someone who can't easily attend meetings but wants to get involved with XR Sheffield in another way. It entails sending out a Doodle poll once a month, sorting the rota from that, and keeping the email group up to date. Emily, who currently does this work, has to stop at the end of March, and is happy to talk to anyone about what's involved.
FINANCE/FUNDRAISING WORKING GROUP – MEMBERS
This Working Group manages XR Sheffield’s bank account and requests for spending, and takes a leading role in organising fundraising activities. These are mainly social events, so there’s a lot of fun involved too. No prior financial experience is necessary.
LEAFLETING WORKING GROUP - CO-ORDINATOR
Extinction Rebellion wants to mobilise 3.5% of the population to achieve system change.
We are looking for someone to co-ordinate our Leafleting Working Group.

This group has been active for a while, and has been very successful. We need a co-ordinator to keep things running.

The group has created resources to help with the writing of press release and website maintenance, to make these jobs accessible to anyone interested.
