COVID-19 Volunteer Opportunites and Resources

Racial Equity Resources

At NetWork Volunteers, we support and promote racial equity in all forms. We encourage all of our volunteers to educate themselves and one another on the systemic history and current impacts of racism in our country. We also encourage our volunteers to continue to advocate and take action towards racial equity as well. As a result, we've created this page to serve as a resource (one of many) for our volunteers. We will be updating this in the coming weeks and months with more content. 

In solidarity,
