Join our team!
We are on the lookout for some more volunteers to help us make streets safer for women and ensure that, through education, legislation and community action, we make “text me when you get home” a thing of the past.
We’re looking for motivated women and allies who can offer some of their time and expertise to help take Reclaim These Streets from a collective outpouring of grief into a long-term, sustainable campaign to improve women’s safety in our public spaces. You don’t need to be an expert, but you will be an enthusiastic team-player who is willing to listen to, learn from and work with other women with different experiences of sexism.
As volunteers for Reclaim These Streets, we all need to understand that discrimination doesn’t exist in a bubble, and that all our other identities as women contribute to how we experience oppression and discrimination. For example, a woman of colour will experience discrimination because of her race and her gender, a disabled lesbian will experience discrimination because of her disability, sexuality and gender – and all of these different kinds of prejudice can be amplified in different ways when put together. Reclaim These Streets also seeks to be fully inclusive, meaning we respect the rights and identity of trans women and non-binary people.
We have a variety of volunteer roles and can shape them to suit your interests, skill set and time availability. Our team meetings are online and we are flexible to accommodate people’s working patterns and caring responsibilities. We especially welcome volunteers who are disabled women, women of colour and LGBTQ+ women.
In particular, we are looking for any of the following:
- Experience or expertise in the violence against women and girls sector
- Digital, web and design experience and skills
- Communications and social media experience and skills
- Former or current teachers/ education professionals
- Volunteer recruitment and management experience
- Experience of the people processes and policy levers in the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, SNP or Green Parties, or in the Welsh Senedd or Scottish Parliament
