Volunteers needed to provide free child care

The DC Childcare Collective is an all-volunteer group which provides free child care to progressive groups working for social justice.   The Collective's incredibly valuable service -- free childcare at social justice meetings and events -- allows parents to organize and advocate for social and political change.   The Collective is focused on serving groups that are primarily led by low-income women of color; groups supported in solidarity Empower DC, Women Empowered Against Violence, UNITE HERE union, The Women’s Collective, The Latino Economic Development Corporation, as well as events coordinated by The DC Rape Crisis Center.

The Collective is holding a Volunteer Orientation on Sunday, June 7 from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.   Volunteers are asked to make a commitment to provide childcare at least six times over the course of 6 months and attend additional trainings that we provide.   The volunteer application and more information is on their site.   The application deadline is June 1.
