Sophia Bos-Shadi, ILPRC Board Member & Volunteer
We have you covered!
Tasks will vary depending on your interests and what you feel comfortable with doing! Here is a rundown of some of the usual tasks that volunteers can take on:
We take calls from incarcerated folks in a variety of jails in the state of Illinois, and provide emergency responses in support in the face of rights violations. These calls can vary in terms of time and duration. These calls may be from an incarcerated person’s loved ones or the incarcerated person themselves.
We expect folks to commit to whatever their capacity is, but the minimum is to help with tasks that are done in meeting during our weekly meetings. This would equate to approximately 1.5 hours a week.
Most importantly, you’ll need to care about the cause and our mission, have empathy with the folks you’re helping, and be open with communication. We also ask volunteers for a monthly donation of $10 to ensure our organization can keep running. However, if you cannot make that payment or need it lowered, we can accommodate that!
We fully understand and support that! We simply ask to at least share and interact with our social posts and promote the cause in your social circles and uplift policies that support incarcerated people/abolition?
