OPAL Volunteer Onboarding Part 1

Access Notes

OPAL's offices and bathroom are ADA accessible.



Help us resist militarization of the police by joining us for volunteer onboarding. Due to our strong stance against militarization of public space, many people have been reaching out to volunteer with OPAL. We maintain our belief that militarization of transit is a false solution. We require all new volunteers to participate in onboarding to make sure that they understand our goals and values. To help volunteers gain the skills that they will need to help us work towards Environmental Justice and a just transition, we will be offering Environmental Justice 101 and Just Transitions 101 at our office at 3202 SE 82nd Ave.Portland. This is the first of two onboarding sessions that we will be offering, with each providing distinct tools for supporting and working with OPAL. Please RSVP or email us to let us know if you will be joining us. The session will be taught in English but translation will be available if it is requested in advance.
