Local businesses want to support Up North Pride, but we need to reach out to them! Sign up for Volunteer Canvassing Day, when we'll be going door-to-door to businesses around the area. You'll hang posters, share details on the upcoming events of Up North Pride Week, and encourage folks to sign up for volunteer shifts and sponsorships.
Volunteers will meet on Saturday, May 19 at 9am at Higher Grounds, where you'll get paired up with a team member, receive a crash course in canvassing, and learn your location assignments. We'll leave to begin canvassing at 9:45am. Be prepared to drive to your assigned locations in the Traverse City area, or come with someone who can. You're encouraged to dress in Pride wear and - for those who are tech-savvy - bring an iPad or smartphone to sign folks up for volunteer events and track business responses. We'll reconvene at 1:30pm at Rare Bird Brewpub for a debrief and a brew!
This event is family friendly; however, individuals under 17 need a chaperone.
