Global Climate Strike For Future (May 24th)

Youth Climate Strike (US)

May 24, 2019, 3 a.m. - May 24, 2019, 6 p.m.

During the last Fridays for Future global climate strike on March 15th 2019, more than 1,6 million young people in 2,069 cites of 125 countries across world went on strike to draw attention to the climate crisis we're facing. What a great Strike! Congrats to everyone... Now think about our impact if we could mobilize not only schools but all sectors of the economy? Let’s do this for that second global strike! Therefore we invite you to start your local event as soon as possible and spread the word so we can centralize all events on the world map dedicated and beat all records. If you want to register and promote your climate strike on Brightest, visit: https://www.brightest.io/manage/apply/ Here are some general Fridays For Future guidelines: 1. Fridaysforfuture want you to only strike in a way, that you feel safe with. 2. Many Fridaysforfuture strikers have a police approval for their strike. 3. It is common for these approvals to only allow for a quiet, sitting protest. 4. Fridaysforfuture are unlikely to be able to provive legal support if there are problems, so FFF advises strikers to liase with local NGOs. These NGOs usually know local lawyers, who are well versed in protest situations. 5. We are a peaceful and quiet striking organisation, but unfortunately we have already seen examples in some countries, where some individuals or organisations try to join a strike for the purpose of causing trouble. Please take care and prioritise your own safety. #FridaysForFuture #FFF #climatestrike

Translation and Interpretation Volunteer - REMOTE anywhere in THE WORLD

Freedom For Immigrants

Flexible times and locations

Freedom for Immigrants (FFI) is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system. Because of the nature of our work, we provide services to people who speak a multitude of different languages. Immigrants and refugees are often already disempowered in the immigration system because of the language barrier, we want to reduce this by ensuring that we are able to provide program information to all our clients in their preferred language. The Translation and Interpretation Team The Translation and Interpretation Team will be a new team within FFI who will help ensure all our materials are translated to meet the diverse language needs of our clients. In some cases, volunteers may also help with interpretation for support sessions. What Does the Translation and Interpretation Volunteer Do? Volunteers can take on written translation tasks or spoken interpretation tasks, as they prefer. While we do not expect Translation and Interpretation Volunteers to necessarily have qualifications relating to translation or interpretation, they should have a demonstrated strong ability in the languages they wish to translate. Ideally, volunteers will only translate from a second language into their native language, although with time pressures it is possible this will not always be the case. The translation system is a two step process, so weaker translators can work on something first before handing it over to a more experienced translator to correct any minor mistakes. In this way, we hope to be able to support translation and interpretation volunteers to improve their skills. Expectations with regard to time commitment are flexible because we recognize that people will have changing schedules. Tasks will be posted on a first come first served basis so volunteers are able to dip in and out as convenient. For a guide, we hope that volunteers will be able to offer at least 4-6 hours of their time per month. Responsibilities include: Participation in bi-monthly team meetings Translation of written materials including: FFI procedures and policies, training materials, client worksheets Interpretation (by phone or in person) for case management sessions, training sessions etc. Log all volunteer hours This role is perfect for someone who wants to do something proactive to help immigrants and refugees. We are looking for energetic people who are self-motivated, and excited to be a part of ending the immigrant detention system. Volunteer Profile Required: Fluency in English Minimum commitment of 12 months at 4 hours per week Intermediate computing skills: Database, Word, Excel, and others Passionate about justice for refugees, asylum seekers and other immigrants Flexibility Reliability Maturity Ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds Desired: Fluency in a second language (or more...)
