Volunteer for the Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy!



Dear Kidz City volunteers,

Kidz City is excited to participate in the (quickly) upcoming Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy July 8-10 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County! The ECWD brings together worker-cooperatives and coopertively-run organizations to strengthen the network of democratic workplaces in the Eastern United States. Check out their website to see the amazing workshops they've got lined up and for information about the walking tour and showcase of Baltimore co-ops on Friday, July 8.

Kidz City is going to be providing childcare throughout the conference weekend and we *really* need your help! So far, we've got 6 registered youth, 2 under 13 years and 4 between 13 years old and 18 years old. We know its quite a hike to get out to UMBC, so we'll try our best to set up shuttles or carpools to get folks down there. All volunteers will also be able to get meal cards so you can get food throughout the day. On Friday, the ECWD is hosting a showcase of worker-cooperatives in Baltimore at the 2640 space. Its from 6pm - 10pm and includes an awesome buffet with vegan, vegetarian, and meat options. Kidz City will be creating a Kidz Zone and folks who'd like to volunteer are welcome to eat for free and enjoy the showcase. We'll also be providing childcare on-site at UMBC on Saturday and Sunday throughout the day. Please take a look at the following schedule and let us know *all* of your available shifts and how many shifts you're willing to work per day.

Friday, July 8:
Showcase at 2640 St. Paul Street
Shifts: 6:00-10:00pm (can do only part)
2-3 volunteers needed

Saturday, July 9:
ECWD at UMBC
Shifts: 8:30-10:30am, 10:30-12:30pm, 12:30-2:30pm, 2:30-4:30pm
2-3 volunteers needed for each shift

Sunday, July 10:
ECWD at UMBC
Shifts: 8:30-10:30am, 10:30-12:30pm, 12:30-2:30pm, 2:30-4:30pm
2-3 volunteers needed for each shift

Lastly, we're thinking about arranging a field trip to Baltimore on Saturday for some of the older kids so if anyone is interested (and possibly has a mini-van), please let us know. More details about that upcoming. Thanks y'all!

With love ,
Sine and Kidz City
