Volunteer with us.
Each year, hundreds of people like you help us carry out our mission of fighting for gender liberation across the Pacific Northwest! Our volunteers are a diverse team of individuals bound together by a desire to create positive change. Legal Voice could not provide the vital support it offers our community without the countless hours generously donated by our volunteers.
You don’t have to be an attorney to volunteer with Legal Voice. We invite you to enhance your advocacy in the Northwest by joining our team in a way that suits your interests, skills, and abilities.
Legal Voice holds two major events each year: an auction in the fall, and our Cocktails for a Cause spring event.
Event Committee members attend regular meetings to create powerful and exciting events that strengthen and engage our community.
2–3 months; 2–10 hours per week, including monthly or bi-monthly meetings on weekday evenings.
Please email Phil Bouie, Senior Development Officer.
Our incredible volunteers are essential in making our annual events such a success. These fast-pace, lively events are a great way to get to know other Legal Voice volunteers and community members.
We’d love to have you join our volunteer team!
