Campus Tabling for #sanctuarycampus We are looking for volunteers who can't commit a lot of time to coming to meetings to sign up for a 1 hour (or more) per week tabling shift in Ballantine Hall! The materials and table will be provided, all you need to do is get them from where they're stored in Ballantine Hall, set them up, and pass out the provided literature to people passing by. Tabling is crucial for getting the idea of sanctuary out into the public, to be discussed and debated. So it may not feel like you're doing much, but you'll really be making a huge difference! Please provide a phone number or email address so that we can contact you with more complete instructions. Also, if possible, sign up with someone else, so that no one is working alone! Sign up to table for #sanctuarycampus here
As always, but now more urgently than ever, UndocuHoosier Alliance needs your financial support as well, for our legal fund.
