Volunteer with EJC!

There are many ways to volunteer with the Employment Justice Center. Fill out this form to let us know how you're interested in working with us.

Advocacy Campaign Volunteers

We need volunteers to help promote EJC’s legislative and enforcement campaigns designed to improve DC’s laws for workers and increase enforcement of existing workplace fairness laws. We need people who can help produce campaign materials, organize workers and other volunteers to take action, testify before the D.C. Council, write letters to the editor, consult on legislative drafting, host house parties or phone banks, and participate in countless other grassroots advocacy techniques. 

Social Media and Communications Volunteer

Currently, EJC's advocacy team is especially looking for a committed volunteer to help us maintain a strong social media presence and assist, as needed, with blogging for our website. The volunteer will be responsible for posting relevant articles, updates, pictures and videos to the EJC facebook page and the EJC’s campaign Facebook page, Paid Sick Days for All, in an eye-grabbing way. The volunteer will also be responsible for tweeting on a regular basis on behalf of EJC and expanding our Twitter presence by growing our number of followers. The volunteer should be interested in EJC’s work and committed to advancing our mission through expanding and strengthening our social media and communications program.

The Social Media and Communications Volunteer should expect to volunteer a total of 5-6 hours per week for the EJC.

Volunteer should have:

   - training or experience working with facebook and twitter for campaigns or non-profits

   - strong writing skills

   - experience writing blogs for advocacy purposes

   - a general interest and commitment to the mission of the EJC

   - ability to create memes a plus

    - proficiency in video editing a plus

Interested applicants please contact niser@dcejc.org.

Workers' Rights Clinic Volunteers

The Workers’ Rights Clinic is a walk-in advice clinic for low-income workers. Intake interviewers use a structured intake questionnaire developed by the EJC to interview workers about their workplace problem. Experienced employment lawyers are on hand to supervise the intake interviewers and help them advise the workers. No experience is necessary- we can use everyone! We are asking that only people interested in making a commitment to volunteer at clinic at least once a month become volunteers.
